Gambia’s army head Yankuba Drammeh has extolled the country’s record in the field of peacekeeping.
Drammeh was in recent months appointed head of the army replacing Masaneh Kinteh who got shoved into the foreign services.
However, barely taking over mantle of affairs, Drammeh was forced to undergo a two weeks isolation after it turned he boarded same plane as Gambia’s first confirmed coronavirus patient.
But speaking recently, about an hour ago regarding the army’s track record, the Major-General said he has only exalted terms to describe the nation’s forces’ performance outside.
“Gambia maintains an enviable track record in the arena of peacekeeping. What do I mean by that? Our officers and soldiers have been privileged to participate in support operations across the globe notably in Sierre Leone, in Ivory Coast, in Liberian, in Sudan etc. But our performance is exemplary.
“How do you gauge the performance of a troop? We have never had any adverse comment against any serving member of the Gambia Armed Forces.” he said.
