V.P. Njie-Saidy and Paramount Chief Demba Sagnia to lead demonstrations in support of Jammeh

Paramount Chief, Demba Sagnia
An all too familiar public display of sycophancy is about to be replayed in the streets of Banjul and around the country, according to our sources.  Led by the so-called Paramount Chief, Demba Sagnia, the former cook of Sir Dawda Kairaba Jawara until he was deposed by the 29-year old army lieutenant named Yaya Jammeh and the sitting Vice President Isatou Njie Saidy, demonstrations are scheduled in the days and weeks ahead to championing Jammeh's call to annul the presidential elections.

Chief Demba Sagnia will be leading his fellow chiefs in trying to whip up public support for a highly unpopular dictator who has just subverted the will of the Gambian voters with the help and tacit support of some ministers and party loyalists.

Included in the list of officials who will be participating in public demonstrations includes but not limited to Yankuba Colley, Mayor of KMC, Sheriff Bojang, Minister of Information, Ousman Rambo Jatta, MD of the Daily Observer newspaper, Fatou Lamin Faye, Minister of Education, Fatou Mass Jobe who is the Executive Director of a Foundation formed by the First Lady, Zainab Suma Jammeh who has been evacuated and currently at the safe distance from the mayhem that her husband is planning to create in The Gambia.

Similar demonstrations were organized by Jammeh when the European Union demanded that his regime mend its ways by improving the country's deplorable human rights record and when he "pardoned" prisoners who where forced to parade in humiliating format at the city square to demonstrate appreciation for being freed.  The planned and Jammeh-organized demonstrations this week, as in previous ones, will follow the same pattern and chants of how great Jammeh's dictatorship has been to ordinary Gambians.
