GAMBIA: Register your confiscated or annexed land

Jammeh inspecting more land to annex

The massive land grabbing taking place in The Gambia led by the Gambian dictator, Yaya Jammeh, has led to the creation of a website which you can log in at  www. to help Gambians and non-Gambians track their lands confiscated, annexed or illegally occupied by the regime of Yaya Jammeh.

The site was developed by Dr. Malanding S. Jaiteh, a Geographic Information Systems Specialist and part-time lecturer at Columbia University's Earth Institute since 2000.  Dr. Jaiteh has a Ph.D in Forest Science from Michigan Technological University with research in understanding drivers and impacts of land cover change in sub-Saharan Africa.  Prior to coming to the United States, Dr. Jaiteh worked at Gambia's Forestry Department as acting Assistant Director.

We are encouraging Gambian's and non-Gambians who have been victims of the Jammeh regime and have lost legitimate ownership of agricultural, commercial or residential land to register their lost property by visiting the website.   Our intent is to catalog all genuine/legitimate claims against the present regime with regards to land confiscation for future use under a new political dispensation.
