Afrinity Productions attended a press briefing at the Gambia Chamber of Commerce (GCCI) on Friday 26th of February 2016 at their head office.

The main aim of the press briefing was to clarify the issues of the border closure between The Gambia and Senegal.
The chief executive officer of GCCI Mr Alieu Secka and his members expressed his concern over the situation as GCCI represent the voice of businesses in the Gambia. The closing of the border is affecting business both large and small, including local traders. GCCI contacted the Dakar chamber of commerce, Ziguinchor chamber of commerce and TANGO in the Gambia but still nothing is clearly confirmed.

I am disappointed, says Baba Dumbuya The Lamin coach

Baba Dumbuya, head coach of Lamin, has said he was disappointed with the performance of his team following their 2-1 defeat to Gunjur in the 2015 super nawettan opening group B tie played at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium on Tuesday.

The former Wallidan and U-17 custodian was speaking to reporters shortly after the game.

Coach Dumbuya pointed out that he was really disappointed with the performance of his team, but said “the group is wide open”.

The Lamin coach said they would go back to training and improve on their weaknesses and fight hard in their remaining group matches to fancy their hopes of progressing to the quarterfinals.

He expressed optimism that Lamin would bounce back in their next game against Brufut on Thursday after losing to Gunjur in their opening game and stand in contention for the super nawettan title.

The coach was part of the Lamin zonal team that beat Banjul in the final to clinch their first-ever super nawettan in 2002; then he was playing for Jatta’s FC in the Lamin nawettan.

For his part, the head coach of Gunjur, Dembo F. Touray alias Karl, said he was glad about the performance of his team after their slender 2-1 win over Lamin in their opening group B game.

Coach Touray also stated that his target is to win his group matches and qualify for the quarterfinals and later fight for the super nawettan title.
