The Gambia Press Union has received with delight the news that ASP David Kujabi, the former public relations officer for the Gambia Police Force, will be leaving for a peace keeping mission in Darfur, Sudan, on Saturday July 18, 2015.
David has on Wednesday morning officially handed over to his successor, Inspector Lamin Njie, at a ceremony held at the police headquarters in Banjul.
Since David assumed the position as police spokesman in August, 2012, the relationship between the media and the police has visibly improved, thanks to his open-door approach. He at most times readily receives journalists and gives out information on matters under his purview.
On behalf of Gambia media, the GPU therefore wishes to felicitate ASP Kujabi for winning the trust of his authorities to send him on a peace keeping mission. We wish him well on his new assignment.
The GPU is ready and willing to work with the Gambia Police Force, through the good offices of the PRO, now under Inspector Njie, in order to take the relationship the media and the police to greater heights for the benefit of the people of The Gambia.
