Fatty said he was charged with his wife Mam Sillah and Eliman Fatty.

Since the matter is before the court, Foroyaa cannot publish the narration of the two sides. We will cover the court case and keep you informed about it.

The fight came about after Mr. Fatty’s son refused to wash his hands after he was asked to do so by the gardeners. Fatty’s son, Eliman wanted to use the toilet inside the garden but was told that he must wash his hands before going in. Eliman told them that he has already washed his hands at his father’s shop but the gardeners insisted that he must wash his hands before going in. After the refusal, Eliman began fighting with Hassan Gitteh, a gardener. Eyewitnesses told Foroyaa that the women joined the fight and Mr. Fatty also joined although he (Fatty) said his purpose was to separate the fight. However, some of the women as well as Fatty sustained injuries.
