The Gambia’s Challenges
Bishop Gabriel Mendy, the first ever Gambian Bishop, was appointed to his post as Bishop of Banjul one year ago. In his first interview he talked about being Bishop and in this one he talks about some of the social issues that The Gambia is facing, in particular unemployment and emigration. He says that almost every family has or knows someone who has tried to make the dangerous journey across in search of work or a better life. Many of them die en route or are never heard from again. He explains more to Miriam Gormally.
