The Gambia Signs Protective Cooperation Deal with Switzerland



The Gambian government says it has signed a Cooperation Agreement on migration matters with the government of Switzerland.

The Gambian government says the cooperation agreement is meant to curb irregular migration and ensure effective protection of the rights of Gambian citizens who are migrants in Switzerland.

The statement reads that the Gambian government further negotiated for all undocumented Gambian migrants in Switzerland to be trained on livelihood skills and integrated in the Swiss community.

“As The Gambia progresses in enhancing its democracy, there is a need to ensure that the country adheres to international Human Rights Instruments by respecting the laws of other countries whilst also ensuring that Gambian citizens within and outside enjoy the required protection of the Government.

“In this regard, the Gambian Government and the Government of Switzerland agreed that all legal remedies will be exhausted before any voluntary returnees will be repatriated,” the statement pointed out.

The statement also said that the Gambian government further assured all Gambians that it was approaching migration as a developmental issue and that the signed cooperation agreement would also pave the way for the establishment of a multi-purpose skills training centre and create other opportunities for young people to achieve their goals in The Gambia.

The statement said both countries agreed on the spelt-out modalities which serve as an enabling tool to ensure equitable and balanced intervention with a view to attaining dignified life for Gambians in Switzerland and Swiss citizens in The Gambia.

The foundation, which seeks to promote the legacy of the world statesman who died in 2013, has been left red-faced after an anonymous complaint from staff members accused Chief Executive Officer, Sello Hatang, and Chief Operations Officer, Limpho Monyamane, of graft.

These allegedly include procurement impropriety and the misuse of the foundation’s corporate credit cards for personal purchases at fast food restaurants, bookstores, hardware and sporting goods stores

Foundation chairman Prof. Njabulo Ndebele, in a vague statement on Wednesday, said the investigation was initiated on December 15 2020 after an email from unidentified staff members a day earlier.

“The foundation takes allegations of such a nature very seriously and is committed to ensuring a fair and proper outcome,” said the statement.

The foundation was established in 1999 when Mandela stepped down as the President of South Africa. It seeks to contribute to making a just society by mobilising his legacy, providing public access to information on his life and times, and to convene dialogue on critical social issues.

The foundation said that interviews were currently being conducted with management, staff and a small number of service providers to ensure all sides of the story are heard.

“The foundation is deeply committed to transparency and good governance, and will ensure that it acts in the best interests of its stakeholders, management and staff.”

“In line with this, the outcome of the investigation will be made public once the process is completed and the investigative report has been considered by the board. This will include details of the investigation itself, how and by whom it was undertaken, and any recommendations that may be made.”
