Even if (?), the figures have been inflated and saving of lives is to be applauded.

Gambia’s malaria incidences drop to 81%’
Africa » Gambia
Friday, October 04, 2013

The minister of Transport, Works and Infrastructure, and National Assembly Matters, has disclosed that malaria incidences in The Gambia have been reduced to 81% with admissions to hospitals also dropping to 71%.
speaking Monday at the National Assembly chambers in Banjul, Bala Garba Jahumpa, who was previously the Health and Social Welfare minister, also declared that malaria-related deaths have also dropped to 90%, crediting the gains to the Gambian leader’s attachment to the wellbeing of the citizenry.
“We must continue to address the needs and aspirations of the African people; we should always advocate when we speak of democracy and that it must be linked to development. Access to quality health is also a human right,” he stated, while noting that access to quality education and decent housing are all fundamental human rights.
Commending President Jammeh for the gains, Minister Jahumpa stressed that Africa’s problem is the lack of revolutionary leadership that can propel its development course.

"Simple is good" & I strongly dislike politics. You cannot defend the indefensible.
