Lt. Col. Solo Bojang

A former state guard commander was on August 27th sentenced to a year in prison. Former Lt. Col. Solo Bojang, also an erstwhile manager of Kanilai Family Farms, was earlier freed by the courts. His whereabouts remains unknown until his secret trial and subsequent conviction by a secret court martial in Fajara Barracks.

Gambian authorities remain tight-lipped on the trial and its outcome, forcing Mr. Bojang’s family to spill the beans to the media.

Family sources told Foroyaa newspaper that Mr. Bojang was escorted out of the court soon after the verdict was handed down. He was escorted back to prison, denying his family members to talk to him.

The absence of the media in the secret trial has thrown the public into darkness about its circumstances and modus operandi.

Mr. Bojang, who was implicated in President Jammeh’s sanctioned fatal witch hunting exercise, was last year acquitted and discharged on abuse of office, conspiracy and theft charges. He was however convicted on false information charge and therefore fined D50, 000. Bojang remained hooked up a system he had helped consolidated, despite paying his fine. He has since remained incommunicado detention until his court martial appearance.
