A leading Gambian gender activist Dr. Isatou Touray, has become the first Gambian woman ever to run for the Presidency, for the first time in our nation's political history, the Freedom Newspaper can reveal. Ms. Touray, who is the Executive Director of The Gambia Committee against Traditional Practices (GAMCOTRAP) is going to run as an Independent Candidate in the upcoming Presidential elections slated for December, 1st 2016. Ms. Touray's candidature would be officially made public on September, 2nd, according to sources familiar with the story.
DR. ISATOU TOURAY TWO Dr. Touray has joined the list of opposition parties to oppose incumbent dictator Yahya Jammeh come December. She is not a stranger to The Gambian electorate. As a renowned gender activist, Ms. Touray's organization GAMCOTRAP has been playing a pivotal role in combating Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) including other cultural practices believed to be detrimental to the life of the girl child. Her organization engages in community base sensitization to raise awareness among Gambian villages about the dangers associated with FGM and other traditional practices.
An excerpt from a document developed by Ms. Touray and her co political activists reads: "History in the making, for the first time in the history of The Gambia, a woman is contesting the Presidential seat. Dr. Touray is standing as an Independent Candidate, sponsored by individual Gambians, who believe in a peaceful democratic change for a better Gambia."
Dr. Touray could not be reached for comment at the time of going to press.
