Great Grandmother Forced to Work 7 Days a Week After she Blew her £200,000 on her African Toyboy

 Margaret says their relationship changed as soon as he moved to the UK


GREAT-grandmother Margaret Sarr has been forced to work seven days a week in a hospital after she blew £200,000 of her life savings on a Gambian toyboy.

Today, the pair are locked in a bitter legal battle over the ownership of a compound Margaret invested £90,000 in but put in his name.
Margaret, from Crawley, West Sussex, tells how her life changed for ever when she met Samba Sarr, a horse-riding instructor 23 years her junior, while holidaying in Gambia with her British ex-husband in November 2002.
After falling for the "handsome" Gambian, who at 48 is younger than her two children, she began visiting the West African country twice a year - causing huge rifts between her and her first husband.
In 2004, Margaret’s 38-year-old marriage broke down and her relationship with Samba quickly turned sexual.
It comes as Gambia has been dubbed a "sex paradise" for Brit grans.
The pair enjoyed an "amazing" sex life and he proposed. The following year, they wed in a lavish £2,000 ceremony which she paid for.
None of her British family attended but nothing could ruin her big day.
Afterwards she paid for his holiday visa and Samba, an odd-job carpenter, moved to the UK in June 2006.
But once home, Margaret tells how their relationship “instantly changed”.
“I was eradicated,” she explains. “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.”
Originally the pair lived in Machynlleth in Wales but were shunned by the community so after a year, moved to Newtown in Powys where they rented a property.
The move meant Margaret had to return to work shortly after retiring as a team leader in nursing homes.
“I was working around the clock to make ends meet,” she recalls. “While Samba sat around all day.”
Around this time, Margaret began to suspect he was cheating on her with a local woman his own age. Something Samba vehemently denied.
Margaret tells how she spiralled into depression but she did not leave him.
Instead, she ploughed £90,000 of her savings into buying a plot of land in Gambia to build a two-storey compound.
Their strained relationship continued until Margaret received a picture of Samba with two mixed race children from the woman she suspected he had cheated on her with.
“He denied it until he was blue in the face and said they were his friend’s kids,” she says.
“Deep down I didn’t believe him but stupidly I kept on living with him.”
In 2012, Margaret helped him secure British citizenship.
Shortly after, his lies unravelled and she found out the children were his and finally broke up with him.
"I found out he was sleeping with this woman in our marital bed while I was at work,” she reveals.
“I used to come back and sleep in that bed - he didn’t even change the sheets.”
Now the pair are fighting over the compound in Gambia because his name is solely on the deeds.
A final judgment is due at the end of the month.
“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.”
