It is now 2018 !! Rumbling on since 2011...WHY? one could ask......ANY READER, want to POST and tell us ALL ?.........

"...............The Chief Justice should hold seminars with those who preside over District Tribunals on how to handle land cases. Foroyaa has witnessed many deliberations and decisions do not appear to be always uniform. This is due to the fact that precedents are not well established and conveyed to the adjudicators to enable them to be systematic in the dispensation of justice."

======================================================================================================================================

QUESTION OF THE DAY

The land tenure system in The Gambia requires careful review if we are going to avert confrontation between families. The Chief Justice should hold seminars with those who preside over District Tribunals on how to handle land cases. Foroyaa has witnessed many deliberations and decisions do not appear to be always uniform. This is due to the fact that precedents are not well established and conveyed to the adjudicators to enable them to be systematic in the dispensation of justice.

One principle that has been established is being a first settler on a land. This concept of first settler is often used in a loose manner because of the fact that other families do come to join the first settler family. When they do, the first settler family would ask the new comers to go to areas where there is thick bush so that they would clear the land and establish their own frontiers of settlement. This is why the second principle was established that a family that first clears a thick bush as a result of the permission of their host would become owners of the land cleared.

Population growth has now given rise to the habitation of many families on land that the original settlers ceded to new settlers. However as the original settlers experienced land shortage, they are tempted to make claims that the land cleared by the new settlers belongs to them. This is creating many conflicts which need proper handling if it is to be prevented from creating endless tensions in the community.

GTBoard to prosecute people selling TDA properties
africa » gambia » Show Map
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

The Gambia Tourism Board has threatened to prosecute people that are clearing the Brufut Heights area and other parts of the Tourism Development Areas (TDA) for sale.

In a media dispatch sent to The Point, the GTBoard stated that the TDA is a reserve zone for tourism development purposes. The West Coast TDA comprises of the coastal stretch from Kotu Bridge to Kartong measuring 800 meters inland, from the High Water Mark.

The released added that it was leased to Central Government in 1969 by the Kombo North District Authority for a period of 51 years and was subsequently extended to 99 years by the State Lands Act of 1991. Currently, the lease (SR NO K226/2015) is under the custody of the GTBoard as per the GTBoard Act 2011.

The release further stated that it has come to the attention of the GTBoard that people are illegally selling landed properties in the TDA, notably Brufut Heights, Tanji, Batokunku, Tujereng, Sanyang, Medina Salam, and Kartong. The general public is hereby advised that this contravenes the abovementioned act thus making the acquisition of land in the TDA through such means illegal.

Ahhhhhhhhh.............Foroyaa has now joined to ask a very important question !!!

====================================================================================================

According to section 192 of the Constitution,

“There shall be established a Land Commission whose composition, functions and powers shall be prescribed by an Act of the National Assembly.”

It is therefore important for the state to make the settlement of land dispute a major priority by doing everything necessity to put the Land Commission, a constitutional requirement which was ignored by the former regime, into operation to provide guidance and remedies to ensure effective and efficient measures to settle land disputes.
