Embassy podcast strengthens U.S. support for The Gambia

Staff member from Embassy Banjul and former national broadcaster Fatoumata Ceesay (left) interviewed Emmanuel D. Joof (right), chair of the Gambian National Human Rights Commission, for “U.S. Embassy Gambia Today,” a podcast series featuring leaders shaping the U.S.-Gambian partnership, May 23. Joof discussed his commission’s work, the Department of State’s Country Report on Human Rights, and a U.S. Senate resolution calling on The Gambia to act on recommendations of the country’s Truth, Reconciliation, and Reparations Commission which was established to support victims of Jammeh-era atrocities and re-build The Gambia. Post’s podcasts air weekly and bolster U.S. support for The Gambia, which, in 2021, held its first intimidation-free election in more than a quarter-century.
