Pa Malick Faye Sacked As Observer MD

Pa Malick Faye(JollofNews) - Pa Malick Faye has been dismissed as Managing Director of the Observer Company, publisher of the Daily Observer newspaper.

Reports from Banjul say Mr Faye was dismissed Thursday Morning.

Details are still sketchy, typical of Yahya Jammeh`s Gambia.

Our correspondents are still working on it.

Momodou Saidy, formerly Director of Press at the Office of the President, has been appointed MD of the Observer, sources say.

Meanwhile, sources close to the Daily Observer in Banjul say the State House decision to sacking the former reporter-turned MD was linked to a caption on the Wednesday’s edition of the Observer newspaper, which reads: ‘The Execution was hypocritically blown out of proportion’. This was the headline for the president’s New Year message. Apparently Yahya Jammeh wasn’t happy with it.

As owner of the Daily Observer, which is Gambia’s most popular and widely circulated newspaper, President Yahya Jammeh has relied on it as his trusted propaganda tool. But he has done so discretely, which means constantly denying ownership through his supporters.

Jammeh has in the past ordered actions against staff of the paper when he was not happy with certain headlines or news stories.

Chief Ebrima Manneh PixHe once ordered the sacking of the entire staff when a story on him was relegated to the inside of the paper.

Pa Malick Faye took over as MD of the Observer in 2009, succeeding Nene Macdoll-Gay after she was appointed Gambia’s Ambassador to the US.

She was later removed in disputed circumstances.

Pa Malick is accused by many of reporting journalist Chief Ebrima Manneh leading to his arrest by President Yahya Jammeh’s notorious National Intelligence Agency (NIA), and subsequent disappearance and possibly death.

It is not yet known if court actions will be taken against Mr Faye as he faces a barrage of accusations of financial malpractices.

A notable case is the allegations forwarded by former Daily Observer Sports columnist, Nanama Keita, now in exile in the US.

Mr Keita became the subject of ‘False Information’ charges pressed against him by State House prosecutors. Many people in Gambia believe Faye used his political clout to turn the tide against him for been vocal critic against his (Faye’s) alleged dishonesty in dealing with the company’s funds.

A few days ago, many of u were congratulating L. Manga on his promotion over M. Jones.

I decided to lift M. Jones spirits up by reminding him about how insecure Jammeh's jobs are.

Pa malick whom i don't know well as he has never cross my radar of good journalists in Gambia..

Naturally, people like him will be inclined to use sinister schemes to curry favors from big powers..

On his way up, he stabbed a lot of backs..Chief Manneh, Keita, etc, cases still lingers...

But the sad reality is, this is a Gambian thing...back stabbing our friends as we scheme our way through mafia promotions n clan loyality

Even the Jammeh has respect for Halifax Allah. He shown to Waa Juwara and Pa Malick who the biggest fools are.Anyone who disrespects Halifa will has to pay one way or the other. Yaya does not want to see Halifa destroy, he is not doing any favour to Halifa but looking for his own interest. Whenever he is captured (which is inevitable) he will rely on the good judgement of people like Halifa for upholding the rule if law. What crime did Pa Malick or Waa Juwara commit, the answer is nothing.In Yaya's eyes they are a treat to his security when he is ousted.However sometimes the guy might be on drugs so don't be surprise of his actions.

...cont from below...

If one didn’t suffer the consequences from yaya’s ownbrutal- hands before he goes, one will, depending on crime either again be prosecuted legally in courts & dealt with accordingly; or yet, finalise with the eternal Almighty Powers-to be & only ONE worth to be worshipped! God will make sure we all are accounted for actions & indulgencies; with particular emphasis placed on the “hypocritical-Al-Munafiq”!

MOST of those hands-in-glove with yaya jammeh will undoubtedly drink from his “poison chalice”. Yaya jammeh doesn’t deserve a mere support of solidarity against your own-relatives, family, fellow human beings & the numerous innocent lives he continues to enslave into farm-hands on hard labour on his kanilai-family-farm enterprises & other interests, defraud us both in economy/assets & properties, molester, kidnap as in the shameless ‘state sponsor’-witch allegations on innocent citizens, yet open murder of Mr Deyda Hydara, April 2000 students, e.g., & arrests & mysterious disappearances of Chief Manneh, kaniba Kanyi, etc, etc,.

...cont above...

Is this the year of justice for chief Manneh. It looks very much so as his ghost seem to be working hard. Momodou sanyang is gone with all the questions he is being asked. Pa malick is in for the biggest manhunt of his sorry life. Whatever the case we wish him all that he deserves for the role he has played in sustaining and entrenching evil in the Gambia. Life goes on. The next person please..............!
