The lumo in Farafenni

Farafenni is a town in The Gambia, lying on the Trans-Gambia Highway in the North Bank Division, just south of the border with Senegal. It is an important market town.

The population of Farafenni is around 30,000 and the main local language is Wolof, although Mandinka, Fula and other languages are also fairly common.

Farafenni is the site of a recently built hospital and also contains a large military base which got attacked in 1995 by half-a-dozen men later claiming to be Sanyang's collaborators.

It is sometimes called Chakubanta or faracity.

There is only one senior secondary school, called: Farafenni Senior Secondary School; two junior Secondary: Farafenni Junior Secondary School, and Angelican Junior Secondary School. Both located in the Outskirt of the town; and two primary Schools, namely: Farafenni Lower Basic School, and Mauritani Lower Basic School. Farafenni Lower Basic School is sponsored by John Cabot CTC in Bristol, UK.

Farafenni is a commercial town, where transactions are carried out in various commercial sectors. It has one big market situated opposite Farafenni Gamtel, and nearby there are shops and a small market on Kerewan Highway. Both markets serve the needs of the inhabitants. There is also a weekly market called lumo. The lumo place is located at the outskirts of the town, adjacent to the Farafenni Mini Stadium.
