1. THE POINT NEWSPAPER COVERED TRIBUTES FOR SHYNGLE NYASSI BY UDP LEADER LAWYER OUSAINOU DARBOE UNDER THIS REPORT;

According to him, “Shingle Nyassi’s death is one of those events that will never be forgotten in the history of the country, as he was a political institution in his own right, a titan, and a giant”.

‘‘I will not speak of Nyassi in the past; I will speak of him in the present, because it is people who have not contributed to the well-being and who passed away are talked of in the past, but those who have contributed to the advancement of their nation, their society are always spoken of in the present, when they depart this world,’’ Darboe stated....

The coffin of the late Honorable Momodou Lamin Shyngle Nyassi has arrived at Yundum international airport today at 3 PM GMT. A motorcade of over 23 cars led by the leader of United Democratic party, the brother of Shyngle Nyassi, his sons, party supporters and Gambians at large converged at the airport to receive Mr. Nyassi’s remains.


The lion politician was finally laid to rest at Brikama Cemetery at 6:30 PM.

Lawyer Ousainou Darboe described the late Nyassi as “our brother lion who never gave up. Shyngle’s vacuum will be hard to fill.”

Shyngle Nyassi was accorded a fitting procession. Kibaaro Radio will broadcast the highlights of Mr. Nyassi’s funeral in our subsequent programs. Speaker after speaker paid tributes to the late opposition pillar, describing him as “a true patriot who never wavered in his quest to unite and shape a better living for all Gambians.”

“We gave Shyngle the biggest farewell,”a prominent UDP activist told Kibaaro News. “Those who doubted our love for him are put to shame.”

The Public Relations Officer of UDP assisted us in getting all the pin drops at the funeral procession. “As a final show of respect, the youths refused Mr. Nyassi’s coffin to be carried in a car to the cemetery,” Lamin Jobarteh said. “They are holding the late Shyngle Nyassi high up, praising God all the way to cemetery. Youths wear T-Shirts with the bold photo of Shyngle Nyassi in front, and a UDP Lion printed at the back of the T-Shirt.”

“Shyngle Nyassi has written his own story,” UDP mouthpiece said, quoting an old adage that “If the lion does not write his own story, the hunter will be dignified. Shyngle is a lion and he has written his own story. No hunter will be dignified.”....
