“DON’T GET ME WRONG”, ASSERTED MOMODOU NJAI, “BE FIRM IN YOUR BELIEF AND STAND FOR WHAT IS JUST”.
If great leaders starting from Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) to Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr and Nelson Mandela went by what was popular for political points or reasons, we would probably not be living in a civilized world albeit all its flaws. Words like mercy, compassion, reconciliation, dialogue, freedom, peace, love, community, justice, change, hope, and individual rights would have being missing in our vocabulary.
My brothers and sisters, even though we cherish the agony and pains in our hearts

“JAMMEH WANTS A PRESS THAT IS PART OF THE LABYRINTHINE MISCARRIAGES OF HIS LEADERSHIP”, DEVULGES CHERNO BABA JALLOW
Mentioning President Yahya Jammeh and the Gambian press in the same breath is sure to evoke passionate feelings. And it should. Jammeh and members of the Gambian Fourth Estate don’t mix; the two are at variance with each other in their respective roles in public affairs. The Gambian press wants to inform and educate the people; and make them an informed and engaged citizenry. But Jammeh wants a press tending to his

Reflections on 22nd July Oslo Bombing and Terror Attack
On the 22nd July 2011 Oslo became no longer the Oslo it used to be. The peaceful capital city of Norway was rubbed of her peacefulness by one of her native citizen, Anders Breivik. Norway in contemporary times is like a maiden virgin of peace that with the terrible event of 22nd July lost her virginity. Just like a young innocent girl who suddenly lost her virginity would look at her body and surrounding cloths in bewilderment so Norway also looked at the shattered city centre and the 77 bullet ridden corpses of youngsters and grappled for answers.

“GAMBIA LOST MORE THAN 20,000 LIVES IN TIME VALUE OVER 20 YEARS; EVIDENCE SUGGESTS”, POSTULATED SARJO BAYANG
Cost of burden in keeping Yaya Jammeh as president for 20 years
Critical assessment of damage incurred by Yaya Jammeh since 1994 reveals true life loss in thousands. This evidence is clear to see without complicated mathematics required. Gambia has a population pegged at 2 million. Everyone lost 20 years of life time in waste moments. By proper accounting of real time values, the figure is even

THE 20TH YEAR OF JULY 22ND 1994 TAKE OVER
On July 22nd 1994 (20 years ago) Yahya with fellow junior soldiers of The Gambia National Army overthrew Jawara and his seemingly indispensable People’s Progressive Party (PPP) government out of Banjul. This was after almost 30 years in the dugout in Banjul but not without warning that people don’t want perpetual stay in power in the form of Kukoi Samba Sanyang’s 1981 coup. Jawara return on the back of Senegal through some dust-up treaty they (Jawara and Abdou Joof) activated.
Shortly thereafter the hastily cobbled up Senegambia Confederation began fall apart; Jawara formed a National Army that eventually produced Yahya Jammeh. Was it

The sacking and humiliation of Sabally should be an eye opener to Aspiring Jammeh Enablers
By Lamin Camara, U.K
I have been intrigued by the unceremonious sacking of the Gambian Secretary General , Modou Sabally. Like many right thinking Gambians, it did not come as a surprise knowing the egocentric and sadistic nature of president Jammeh. Just like the daily observer headline of 1996, “Mighty Sabally have fallen down” when the notorious and most evil Vice-president was kicked and handcuffed to Mile2 ,elated Gambians across the politician spectrum.Although you are miles apart from VP sabally, your sacking was greeted with sigh of relief by Gambians.That tells a lot of your character,that people are feeling that , a sadistic and
