Juka Fatou Jabang is one of Gambia’s finest and most consistent writers. She is a poetess that informs, educates and empowers through her well-chosen diction, intellectual and literal prowess. She is a retired public and international civil servant with more than four decades of governance and capacity development experience in the national and international spheres. Juka is better profiled as an educationist, a public sector management expert, a writer, a literary critic and an advocate of sexual and gender based violence.
