Madi Jobarteh has said activist and politician Nogoi Njie died “abandoned and betrayed”. 

The human rights activist and political commentator said Nogoi Njie, who was persecuted by the Jammeh dictatorship, 

“embodied courage and freedom”.

“She is the manifestation of the strength of a woman. In her face and voice the beauty and vitality of the Gambia can be vividly seen and felt and heard! The passing of Nogoi Njie is yet another manifestation of the cost of dictatorship and the slow and disgraceful nature, if not the failure of accountability to address the plight of victims since 2017. 

“So many victims have died over the past seven years yet it appears our nation and its government are not perturbed by this sad reality,” he said.

Jobarteh continued: “How long shall many more have to die from the pains inflicted on them by the evil APRC regime whose enablers and perpetrators continue to enjoy the highest positions of power and privilege in the Gambia Government until today.

“The passing of this patriotic Gambian Amazon highlights the shameful contradictions in our society in which the truth is betrayed and patriotism punished. 

“A society that abandons her own sons and daughters who stood up for and gave everything to Mother Gambia but rewards those who have defrauded and inflicted pain on Mother Gambia.”
