GAMBIA: The Dubai of Africa

Alhagie Professor Doctor Yaya Abul-aziz Jamus Junkung Jammeh, Balili Mansa, Nasurudeen, president of Gambia and Admiralty of the State of Nebraska has been promising Gambians that he will transform the country into the Dubai of Africa.

21-years in office, this is what Gambians get instead.  A drainage system that is both an embarrassment and a disgrace.  When rains come, the entire urban districts of the Greater Banjul area, including the capital city float in water mixed with the affluent from the sewage system threatening the health of ordinary Gambians.

All of this is happening to Gambians while Jammeh and his few cronies continue to amass wealth through elaborate corruption schemes at the expense of the rest of Gambian society.

It is time to put an end to this madness by calling for Jammeh to vacate State House at the end of his current term which ends in 2016.   If Jammeh and his group of incompetent APRC apparatchiks cannot lift The Gambia from this hell hole to the new level of progress many African countries like Sierra Leone, Liberia, Angola and Mozambique - all post-conflict countries - are experiencing, it is time to relieve him and his bunch of equally corrupt minions of their duties.  They have failed Gambia.  They have failed Africa.
