Dead dolphin on Gambian beach highlights Chinese factory pollution

Gambians woke up on Saturday morning to find a dead dolphin on the shores of the beach of Gunjur.

The incident is believed to be linked with the activities of a Chinese company that residents and activists have long complained were polluting Gambian waters.

The said pollution caused by Golden Lead has in the past sparked protests in the tiny West African country.

The company is said to drain its waste into the sea, which situation has led to death of fishes that have been washed ashore often.

Reports indicate that last week, some three Gambian activists protesting against the activities of the company were detained by police, they have subsequently been granted bail.

Gambia’s coastline is one of the country’s biggest foreign exchange earners. Tourists have often flocked The Gambia to spend their holidays.
