Gambia: Lt. Yayah Jammeh is dead !

SHARE:


On 22 July 1994, Lt. Jammeh, with a group of young officers in the Gambian National Army, seized power from President Sir Dawda Jawara in a military coup by taking control of key facilities in the capital city, Banjul. Jammeh, a 29- year-old officer who was the Chairman of the Army group, accused his predecessor Jawara of corruption and hostility to democracy. Nobody could have ever believed Jammeh would follow the suit of his predecessor as he vehemently turned himself into 'tin gods' after taking over power. No wonder Thomas S. Monson, an American religious leader and author, says "The power to lead is the power to mislead, and the power to mislead is the power to destroy."
Having clearly lost the last presidential election to his main challenger, Adama Barrow, Jammeh still wants to be relevant in the political scheme of the Gambia.
Jammeh, who portrays himself as a devout Muslim, has persistently ignored pleas and advice of the world leaders to vacate the office for Barrow later this month after the expiration of his long tenure. Regional West African leaders have issued a joint statement urging the outgoing Gambian president to quit office. The 15-member Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) issued its call in a statement at the end of a summit in Nigeria. The leaders vowed “to take all necessary action to enforce the results” of the Dec. 1 poll, without spelling out what the measures would be. The summit in Abuja was attended by 11 heads of state but without the leaders of four members, including the Gambia.
