However, this move is contrary to the promise of the incumbent president when during and after his victory in 2016 elections, gave staunch warning to Chiefs to desist from taking part in political campaigns for either ruling or opposition parties.

But recently, during his meet the people’s tour, President Barrow urged Chiefs and Village Alkalos to engage in party politics as that is part of their mandate and their civic rights. He urged them to support the NPP and its interests. He also promised a salary package for Alkalos.

Two weeks ago Chief Lamin Darboe of Kombo South, was sacked from his position. According to sources his sacking was politically motivated due to his reluctance to mix party politics with the functions of a Chief.
