It is with great shock and profound sadness that we learn of the sudden death of one of the most illustrious sons and daughter of Sooninkara, the nationally acclaimed GRTS journalist Sise Sawaneh.

Sise was a hard working, dedicated and consummate professional, who blazed a trail, from, her days of great success as Sooninkara's most celebrated journalist/activist with GRTS where she won awards at the institution. Sise, was a friend, a colleague and a patriot who cared very deeply about Sooninkara and Gambia and also global leadership that serves people and improve lives. Her brilliant work during 2018 Yaaxaraqe cultural event, was hailed by all of us here at SYDO.

She always sought every opportunity to share her deep passion for Sooninkara success. She sought our advices during her last trip to Kantora and we discussed varied issues relating to Sooninkara and Gambia. She invited us to take better advantage of the "New Gambia" to achieve our collective aims and objectives.

In her passing, Sooninkara, Gambia and indeed the world have lost a great, dedicated and wonderful human being. May her and the departed souls rest In perfect peace. On behalf of our cabinet, board if directors and general members of SYDO, we wish to to express our deepest sympathies and condolences to her father Mr Sawaneh, her siblings and the entire family.

Our sympathies also go to her colleagues at GRTS and the journalism fraternity.
