Former Gambia National Army chief of defense staff, Lang Tombong Tamba, has refuted allegations of his involvement in the 2006 foiled coup led by Ndure Cham.
Wassa Camara yesterday told The Gambia Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission that he was informed by ring leader Ndure Cham that Lang Tombong Tamba and other senior army officers were involved.
He declared: ”I don't think I have anything to clear. Allah is over all things. Wassa Camara said that Ndure Cham told him that myself and Peter Singhateh were part of the (coup) and we had disagreement over the leadership. So if that is anything to go by. What do you think could have stopped me from talking the mantle of the office of president of this country at the time I foiled the coup and had them arrested at the time of which Yahya Jammeh was in Mauritania, what do you think could have stopped me from taking over as the Military was already behind me. We all have to be careful of this social media and think of what we say of certain issues for the sake of tomorrow.
I will leave everything to Allah as nothing can be hidden from him. Jobe, I am not bothered as Allah is over things. Try and compare the statements Wassa Camara made before the pannel and was under no duress, compare it to the ones he made before the Court Martial and the TRRC”.
