A great-grandmother has been forced to work 7 days a week after she spent $265,000 of her life savings on her Gambian toyboy husband.
Now, the two are in a legal battle over the ownership of a compound Margaret Sarr purchased for $119 but put under his name.
The 71-year-old grandma from Crawley, West Sussex, shares how her life changed completely when she met Samba Sarr during her visit in Gambia with her ex-husband in 2002.
After falling in love with the horse-riding instructor who was 23 years younger than her, she started visiting the country two times a year, causing a huge rift between her and her ex-husband.
At that time, Samba was 48 years old but he is younger than Margaret’s two children.
It was in 2004 when Margaret’s first marriage broke down and her relationship with the Gambian boy turned sexual. The two had an ‘amazing’ sex life and he popped the question.
After a year, they tied the knot in a lavish ceremony which Margaret paid for.
None of Margaret’s British family attended but she proceeded. After paying for his holiday visa, Samba moved to the UK in 2006. But that’s when their relationship ‘instantly changed.’
Margaret explained: “I was eradicated. Over there he was proud to be with me but because of the age gap he never wanted to be seen with me over here. He only wanted the visa. It was soul destroying.”
The two initially lived in Wales but were shunned by the community so they decided to move to Powys where they rented a property. But that move meant she had to go back to work shortly after retiring.
“I was working around the clock to make ends meet,” she expressed. “While Samba sat around all day.”
Margaret started to suspect he was cheating on her but Samba strongly denied. She spiraled into depression but stayed with him.
She even spent another $119K of her savings to buy a plot of land in Gambia so they could build a two-story compound.
Their relationship continued until the grandma received a photo of Samba with two mixed-race children from the woman she suspected her new husband had cheated on her with.
“He denied it until he was blue in the face and said they were his friend’s kids,” she said. “Deep down I didn’t believe him but stupidly I kept on living with him.”
In 2012, she helped Samba secure British citizenship. But after this, his lies were uncovered and she found out the two children were really his. That’s when she decided to finally break up with him.
“I found out he was sleeping with this woman in our marital bed while I was at work,” she revealed. “I used to come back and sleep in that bed – he didn’t even change the sheets.”
The two are now fighting over the compound in Gambia as his name is solely on the deeds.
“When I met Samba I thought he was the man of my dreams,” says Margaret. “I was gullible really. All he really wanted was a passport and a life here. I took him out of poverty and this is how he repaid me.
“Other women need to be careful. When I see my lawyer in Gambia I see women in there in all sorts of states. They target white European women and bleed them dry.”
