On 16 December 1991, The Point was founded by Pap Saine, Deyda Hydara, and Babucarr Gaye; Hydara and Saine had been friends since childhood. Gaye resigned four months later, and Hydara and Saine ran the paper together for the next decade. Saine also worked as a Reuters correspondent for West Africa.
Initially, the Point was bi-weekly newspaper published on Mondays and Thursdays. In 1995, because of an increase in readership of the Paper, the publishers increased publication by additional issue. There was Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays publication.
This production programme remained uninterrupted until 2001, when production was again increased to four issues weekly, notably Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Since early 2006, the paper has gone daily.
One of the founding members, Mr Deyda Hydara, was assassinated on 16 December 2004, on the night of The Point’s 13th anniversary.
His wife, Mrs Maria Hydara, has replaced him in the paper’s management team.
The Point has been online since August 2005 with its website address: www.thepoint.gm.
The Point Newspaper has contributed a lot in terms of Press Freedom, Democracy, Human Rights in The Gambia and beyond.
In December 2006 in Germany, the paper got an International Press Freedom Award (John Philip Palm), which was received by Mr Pap Saine in Germany.
The Point is an independent newspaper that promotes divergent views, and issues on democracy and human rights. The Paper covers national issues on politics, economics, business and development, as well as world affairs.
