Gambia Moral Congress’ Mai Ahmed Fatty has gone into quarantining after arriving into the country.
The former interior minister did not reveal where is coming from but said he is going into isolation for possibly fourteen or twenty eight days.
“I just returned home from travel. For those who may not know, the right to return home for a Gambian national cannot be vitiated by any law; meaning the borders can legally be closed for entry to only non Gambians. Gambian nationals have the right to enter the country by law, and so the border closure is not absolute in law. This applies to ALL countries of the world.
Going into quarantine is for my protection and the protection of the public. The community will be fully assured. This is the responsible thing to do. All new arrivals into the country must subdue to public health rules as established.
In compliance with the public health regulations, and in coordination with personnel of the Department of Health, I will go into immediate quarantine. During this critical period, I shall be with all of you in spirit, and together, we shall emerge stronger, wiser and smarter out of this pandemic.
We must continue to support the Ministry of Health and the gallant frontline warriors, and to also heed the public health advisory. I love you all. Long live the Republic of The Gambia,” Fatty said.
