Aja Fatoumatta Tambajang hypocritical, vainglorious and extravagant - Dr Momodou Tangara
By Alhassan Darboe:
The Gambian minister of Foreign affairs Dr. Momodou Tangara has painted former vice president of The Gambia Aja Fatoumatta Tambajang as a vainglorious, hypocritical person who chose to frit away taxpayers’ money on luxury instead of saving them money on hotel accommodation.
In a written response to the former VP, Tangara said: “To make another point clear, at the same hotel, the VP was offered other choice of suites with lower rates in New York but she chose the suite with a higher rate which contradicts her claim that she was trying to save The Gambia some money.”
Dr. Tangara to clarifies further adding that : “Contrary to what was alleged every approving authority was fully aware of how the payments were done and properly accounted for in line with Government accounting procedures. Why would the then Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ousainu Darboe, waste his time to investigate an allegation that is without merit when the accounting records are very clear? Why would the Accountant General waste his time to ask someone to pay back money when that money is only a figment of someone’s fertile and wild imagination?”
