The Interim Chairman, of the Senator Family, Mohamed Dumbuya explained that the Senator Family is a non-governmental organization that consists of members from all walks of life ranging from academics to those involved in trade who reside at Mountain Cut, Peterson Street, Godrich Street, Sackville Street and Kissy Road in Freetown.
