'Gambia Maybe Time' (GMT)

 Current Time in Banjul
This is a twist on words of Greenwich Mean Time which defines many Gambian's notoriously bad time keeping i.e. nearly always late for an appointment. If you agree to meet someone at for example 10am in the morning they will most probably turn up at 11 or 12 am if they bother to turn up at all!

One tip is to call an individual before departing to meet them at the appointed hour or else request that they call you by phone when they are on their way.

If you are going to meet someone at their office then do make contact with them by phone just before you depart as they may have gone off on another errand or attending some kind of unscheduled ceremony that morning.
