The Story Behind the Blog:
The Birth Of A Web Site
26 May 2008 marked the birth of Gambia affairs website namely, gambiaaffairs.bogspot.com.
In a country voices resides in the people. An independent people are the architects of their own destiny. Their voices must not be silent.Their minds must not yield to slumber. They must stand vigil and exercise permanent scrutiny on how the affairs of their country are managed.
The voices of the people must have authority to determine the policies and programmes of government which manage their affairs. The government must be transparent and accountable to its people. The Gambia Affairs blog will aim to be the vehicle on which the Gambian people can travel towards greater transparency.
This blog is written by journalists from different Gambian newspapers.
