State House shudders as seven unsuspecting soldiers received hot steps orders from their erratic Commander-in-Chief, President Jammeh late Monday afternoon. According to information reaching Faturadio from State House ambits, the abrupt termination of the service of Private Sanyang, Private Colley, Couple Masireh Gibba and Private Tamba was allegedly a result of a piece of “Jafo” a bark smoothly beaten and flattened into a “Kankurang costume suspected to be a juju was discovered inside the presidential aircraft. Jammeh, who heavily relies on black magic for his existence and survival, went volcanic and ordered for their immediate dismissal.
As the State House guards were recovering from their numbness at the outrageous dismissal of their several comrades, two other soldiers, lance Corporal Camara and Lance Corporal Spraka were also shown the exit point for allegedly smoking weed while on duty. It would be remembered that Jobarteh, Head of the Airport Security was forced to kiss his job good-bye couple of years ago when plates of coos were unearth at the tarmac shortly before the presidential plane landed.
Lance Corporal Sonko who was overheard lamenting, “I will never carry out an illegal order for I signed to protect Gambians” also bade farewell to his service after refusing to execute an order from a senior officer. A little bird has it that the allegations lack substance and their sacking is purely a result of contentious rivalry brewing among the guards.
General Saul Badjie, one of the five people captaining Gambia to unsafe shores, has prevailed over President Jammeh to reinstate State Guard Commander, Col. Ansumana Tamba who was transferred to the barracks to humble him shortly after returning from the US. Col. Tamba who served once as Jammeh’s ADC before ascending as State Guard Commander is saluted as one of the few excellent weapon experts in the GAF.
Col. Umpa Mendy, Jammeh’s Principal Protection Officer who was stripped off his Colonel to private, remained banished in Farafenni barracks. All this punctuates depots shy away from their shadows.
