Mr. Mbai, I must say I am disappointed with the coalition bureau at Brikama, West coast region.. We took risk going to the polling stations to represent the coalition in order to oversee the voting process and make sure things are transparent. We  checked the ballot drums before they were being put in the polling booths to make sure they were not tampered with. We did all the marking of voters on the masters list and contributed to the counting of the marbles…without us the agents, it would have been so difficult for the elections to be transparent as we were so eager for the process to be genuine and fair…

Now here we are following our coordinators day and night but all they will tell us is come tomorrow and when we show up it will be the same story. We are really getting fed up with the going and coming. We the agents knew how risky it was to be an opposition agent but we let go of all that just to help and make our beloved country a better place.

We woke up as early as 6 am in the morning to go to the polls, but here we are with nothings as these people are starting to forget we the agents who were there for them during the controversial elections…

We have to be paid for our sacrifices as we did enough for the coalition. It is now the 4th day, the coalition bureau at Brikama is yet to pay us. We are getting tired of the endless excuses as we have personal problems to solve…

Editors note: The alliance leaders could not be reached for comment. The alliance should create a transition media contact person. We know for a fact that Mr. Halifa Sallah, is the alliance’s spokesman. But Mr. Sallah’s  contact information is not accessible to this medium. We will be grateful if the alliance can create a media line now towards the inauguration of President elect Barrow so that  reporters journalistic queries can be addressed in a timely fashion.. Thanks for your attention.
