Some residents of Tallinding have commended their councillor, Baboucarr Mansally for chalking successes since his election into the Kanifing Municipal Council.
One of Tallinding's youth leaders, Musa Leigh told What’s On-Gambia: “Baboucarr is a truly remarkable politician who is loved by everyone here. His passion for his job always shines through in his activities with the people.”
Another Tallinding resident disclosed the young councillor has performed remarkably in the areas of education, sports, waste management, and water supply among others.
Under water supply, he disclosed Baboucarr was able to install communal taps in poor neighbourhoods.
“His water supply project has changed many lives for the better. Now women are able to do laundry without collecting water several times from far-off water taps.”
In the area of sports and social activities, the APRC councillor is popular for supporting sprouting football teams. One of the teams in his ward recently took part in the KMC Mayor’s Football Tournament.
One Modou Yusupha Cham applauded Baboucarr for engaging the community in various kinds of projects.
Baboucarr, a first-time councillor, is among the most prominent young members of the former ruling party, APRC.
In a recent Facebook post, he wrote: “I'm always thinking about my people, how to bring development to my ward, Tallinding North. O Allah, you know our problems better than us, Grants us what is best for us. Ameen!”
