Press Release Dated: 10th May, 2024

Effective immediately, the Ministry of Lands, Regional Government, and Religious Affairs suspends all allocations and construction activities within the protected Tambi Wetland at Cape Point, Kanifing Municipality.

This move is in response to very troubling land transactions that pose a potential danger to this protected wetland, marine resources as well as residents of Cape Point and surrounding areas.

Accordingly, the Lands Ministry is establishing a Taskforce to investigate these violations comprehensively. Working closely with the Ministry of Environment, the Ministerial Taskforce will ensure that the Tambi Wetland remains safeguarded against any further violations.

The Taskforce will also, guide strategic actions to prevent future unauthorized transactions and preserve the Tambi Wetland’s serene ecosystem.

Crucially, the Ministry of Lands is committed to safeguarding this invaluable natural resource for future generations and will take all necessary measures to ensure its preservation.

Ebrima G. Sankareh

The Government Spokesperson & Presidential Diaspora Adviser
