“I’m not crazy!”: What’s On-Gambia follower names baby after Jaha Dukureh

Budding politician and FGM activist Jaha Dukureh was pleasantly surprised to learn that a What's On-Gambia follower has named his daughter after her.

In a message sent to us, the young man disclosed Jaha is among his favorite activists.

"I made up my mind a long time ago that when I am blessed with a daughter again, I will name her after Jaha. I don't know her in person, but recently I read a lot about her," he said.

The young father added: "I saw how she stood for girls in the country to have better education and also her fight to end female genital mutilation in The Gambia. I am totally against FGM and now that I am blessed with two daughters, I never want them to go through this act."

According to him, Jaha is a phenomenal black woman and he's so proud that she's a Gambian.

He said: "A lot of people may think I am crazy. But look, this is how inspirational and influential people make difference in the lives of ordinary people. I am not asking for anything in return. I don't even want to tell her. People think I am crazy that I named my daughter after someone who doesn't know me."
