One of the oldest towns in The Gambia that has vastly become a big city to reckon with in the country and in the sub region today is Serrekunda, a city of great history that serves as the capital of Kanifing Municipality Council. It is a popular city that wherever you are in The Gambia when you mention the name to anybody you will be taken there without qualm. If you like spell the name as Serrekunda and also if you wish spell it Serekunda, all things been equal it is the commercial city of The Gambia. Banjul, the City of the Light, is the capital city of The Gambia but the development, activities and events ongoing in this city of about half a million inhabitants, Serrekunda, has made it supersedes the rest of the cities in the Gambia. This is because by African standards it is admitted a city hence it is considered the biggest metropolitan in the country; as also as a city that harbours the poor and the rich people with large number of visitors from foreign countries.
