Yesterday I wrote an insensitive post questioning the veracity of Toufah Jallow’s rape story against the former president, Yahya Jammeh.

I am still severely disappointed in myself at the insensitivity of my words. I know my sincerest apology now won’t take away those tasteless words.

Rape and sexual harassment can reach anyone in our closely-knitted society where societal and cultural norms greatly limit victims’ option of taking a different route.

I made a truly inappropriate comment. It is unacceptable and I sincerely apologize with a heavy heart for the words I wrote.

All apologies, Nanama!
