Driver involved in Kitty accident denied bail, remanded

The cab driver involved in the wreck that wounded at least 30 people on the outskirts of Brikama has been denied bail and remanded in custody.

One person remains in Coma and 29 others remain in critical condition since the February 4 accident that happened in Kitty, medics say.

Police charged Alpha Jallow with reckless driving and negligence a day after the arrest. He is currently being held at the Mile II Prisons, a deplorable detention center.

Prosecutors say Mr. Jallow could skip bail and go out of jurisdiction. Details of the case remain very scanty to the public.

Jallow, whose family has donated D11,000 to the victims for medical treatment, pleaded not guilty.

The 30 victims are said to be mostly coalition supporters who were celebrating the election victory of the country’s new President Adama Barrow.

Assistant to the President and Special Advisor Halifa Sallah and Minister for Youths Henry Gomez visited the casualties. Gambia’s government gave US$3750 for immediate assistance to to the casualties.
