Opinion| Inspiring Youngstars General Secretary, Gave His Reaction To The Mysterious Death Of The 66+ Babies

    By Musa Saidykhan For almost 8 years in the medical school, I was taught anatomy, physiology, and even histology in the first years of my medical journey. These periods were geared toward understanding the basic human structure and the functions of organ composition.  In addition, we were only introduced to the pathology of the organ systems after we were given the rare opportunity to interact with the patients and discuss with them their sufferings and their symptoms, with the help of our seniors to appreciate the signs of the diseases as well.  Briefly, it wasn’t nothing but to “NOT TO DO HARM” to our patients, soon after we start studying disease pathology and management, it was an act that we learn and passionately study and present ourselves to acquire the best training  and be always available to alleviate the sufferings of those that come under our care, together with other health care providers.  Shockingly, we surprisingly observed, the system that was meant to protect, pr

The governments lack of commitment she said, has hindered the prosecution process of perpetrators of the human rights abuses committed under the former government. She made these remarks with The Outpost recently at her office in Serrekunda. “It is said that justice delayed is justice denied so in that sense, we can say that the slow pace of government’s actions could be taken as justice being denied. If we are talking about justice in terms of criminal prosecutions, we expected to see more concrete steps being taken at this stage e.g. the formulation of a prosecution strategy at least but so far, all we seem to be getting is more verbal affirmation of government’s commitment to the process backed by very little action” she argued.
