Fatoumatta Tambajang mentally unstable, liar and visa fraudster - Dr. Tangara

By Alhassan Darboe,


The Gambian minister of foreign affairs Dr. Momodou Tangara has accused the former Gambian Vice president Aja Fatoumatta Tambajang of mental instability, visa fraud and lack of professionalism. Responding to Tambajang, Tangara challenged: “Could the former VP who described herself as a humble servant of God and a paragon of virtue shed light on the issue of her so-called Personal Assistant she took to New York at the expense of the state for CSW61 and never attended a single meeting?”

Commenting further Tangara accused the former Vice President of unprofessionalism for conducting government business on whatsapp instead of using professional and established protocols.

“On the contrary, she initiated an ill-considered text-message with the clear aim of lambasting and upbraiding me and my staff for her ‘difficult and embarrassing experience’ at New York’s JFK Airport by security while on a poorly planned journey to Chile for a meeting. The trip was not officially communicated to the Permanent Mission.


“A large part of the communication concerning that trip was all conducted through the WhatsApp messaging platform. The ticket was procured the night before the travel and as a result she was not able to travel on the same route with her Protocol Officer. Her security officer was left in New York and could not proceed to Chile for lack of a ticket and poor arrangements. She travelled to Chile without these essential personnel.”


Aja Fatoumatta Tambajang has been under fire for cobbling together a nonexistent coalition to extend Barrow’s term to 5 years instead of the agreed 3 years which members of the 2016 coalition including UDP, GMC and PDOIS distances themselves from. Tambajang has been on the defensive ever since with her credibility, consistency and mental health coming under serious scrutiny.
