Wrestling Association Leadership Dissolved

By Sulayman Bah

The current serving Gambia Wrestling Association leadership will cease to exist after getting dissolved by the National Sports Council yesterday.

Sports Council took the move to disband the GWA in a statement issued on Wednesday after the Matarr Jarju-led leadership failed to hold an elective congress a month following review of its constitution by stakeholders.

The arena should have opened since October 15th however vigorous calls from stakeholders who accused the current Matarr Jarju-led leadership of overstaying in power, manipulations and other vices, triggered the current standstill.

Stepping in, the NSC, as overseer of national sporting associations, opted to dissolve the GWA, a thing expected to open up the path for stakeholders to elect in a fresh executive to steer affairs of the traditional sport.

Reached to comment on the NSC’s decision, Matarr Jarju told Foroyaa Sport  he’s got nothing to say and claims he’s unaware of  the verdict.
