The United Democratic Party has rescheduled its fundraising event for May 22 amid coronavirus restrictions on public gatherings. 

The Gambia government ban on mass gatherings will come into effect on March 8 to curb the rise in coronavirus cases. 

“Being advised on the current situation, the UDP has taken the responsible decision to postpone its well-organised fundraising event until after the Christian Lent Period and after the Muslim Ramadan and we propose to reschedule to Saturday May 22,” the party leader Ousainou Darboe said.

Mr Darboe expressed dismay at the delay of the nationwide ban on public gatherings and called for an immediate implementation of the ban.
