Jammeh's army readying for elections?

One of the numerous personal guards of the Gambian dictator seen here controlling the crowd as they get close to Jammeh during his most recent political tour of the provinces.   This is preview of what Gambians are likely to see as the scheduled presidential elections draw closer, the campaign heats up and the rhetoric gets more tribal and bellicose.  Those opposition parties determined to take part in a process that is already rigged will have to withstand the intimidation that is certain to be an integral part of Jammeh strategy.
