Moon and a Gambian Church Leader

From the Banjul Point:

A four-member delegation from Universal Peace Federation (UPF) recently paid a visit to The Gambia as part of efforts to introduce the federation to the country.

The delegation, which arrived in The Gambia on 31 August and led to The Point offices by Mr. Ebrima Jadama of Family Federation for World Peace, include Kue Youl-Lee, Mina Takakusaki, Louice Miyake and Nana Toril.

According to Mr. Jadama, UPF is a global alliance of individuals and organizations dedicated to building a world of peace, adding that the federation was founded in 2005 by Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon, a South Korean domiciling in the U.S.

Details about the members of delegation are virtually non-existent on-line, although a Taiwanese site belonging to the Unification Church refers to Jadama as a “Gambian Church leader”; in all likelihood this means a Christian church. This is significant; Ed Brayton has recently given us an overview of Rev Moon’s association with church leaders in Michigan, while I have been keeping an eye on the activities of former Roman Catholic archbishop Emmanuel Milingo. Milingo, who has been excommunicated by the church, endorses Moon’s mission and is attempting to recruit disaffected Roman Catholic clergy who wish to marry.
