The Gambia Press Union under the leadership of Sheriff Bojang Junior in collaboration with Konrad Adenauer Stiftung is currently training 20 vibrant journalist and practitioners on the importance of investigative journalism in a sovereign state at a hotel in Kololi.
Mr. Bojang on an interview with media houses, highlighted the significance of the training, adding that he is confident that at the end of the training journalist will become more equipped and will; stand firm to uphold the integrity of the people which will in turn help to effect reforms in the country.
“We all know this country is at a crossroad when it comes to governance issues and when it comes to money issues. We all know that money is coming in to the country in terms of millions and billions, but where did they go and who is benefiting from it.”
Raymond Joseph, the lead trainer, said the Gambia is open for business, but again it’s open for corruption. He therefore challenged the participants to take up the forum with seriousness in order to unearth some of the things that will be happening in the country.
