Gambian State House website features Adama Barrow


gambiaWith gale of resignations hitting his cabinet in its last official days, President Yahya Jammeh’s endgame is probably near.

The latest indication of that is the display, as at press time, the picture of the man who brought Jammeh’s 22-year rule to an inglorious, Adama Barrow on the official website of Gambia’s State House. But it is unclear if the website was hacked.

Barrow is expected to be sworn in today. Where it will be done, is yet unclear as Jammeh ignored military threats and stay put in Banjul, refusing to step down.

The country’s national stadium was initially the choice venue for the swearing-in. But Barrow’s spokesman Halifa Sallah said he would be sworn in an undisclosed location.

Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz who initiated the last minute effort to break the political deadlock by visiting Jammeh on Wednesday said Jammeh was adamant about hanging on to power.

Jammeh lost to opposition candidate Adama Barrow in the December 2016 presidential election after ruling the West African nation for 22 years. But he later announced that the election results were flawed and unacceptable.

On Tuesday, Jammeh declared a state of emergency just two days before he is due to step down, citing “extraordinary” foreign interference in the country’s post-electoral crisis.The following day, the country’s National Assembly a resolution that gave the incumbent him a three-month tenure extension.

    My personal message to Yahya Jammeh:

    Heads you lose, tails they win! I don’t see any light at the end of the tunnel for you. The “war” if at all we can call it that, will not last up to a week and we all know what the outcome will be. I pity for the poor Gambian soldiers who will die needlessly because of your empty bravado.
