This man was an old seaman from British Colonial days, who was born on Haddington Street Banjul about 70 years ago,he is now dead.When my friend was getting near retirement age he went to Social welfare to enquire as to what pension he would receive from the time he worked for several Foreign companies the worker at the office did find that he was entitled to several pensions from the money that they had deposited,he asked when he would receive money paid from the pension that had been paid for him by these companies,he was told that many people were waiting and his name would go on the list for payment,he attended the office many times but never received any pension money. I have no reason to doubt anything that he told me about his pension pot. There may be many more Gambians who were owed money but never received any from their employment from times long past.
"Simple is good" & I strongly dislike politics. You cannot defend the indefensible.
This is still happening. If you follow the on going Janneh commission of enquiry you will see that the pensoners money at the SSHFC have all been misused. Simply, there is no money. Secondly, two months pension can't buy you a bag of rice.
