Jammeh Victims Speak : A Wax Media Video Production

Ebou Waggeh, CEO Wax Media 

It is our pleasure to introduce our readers to a video film by Mr. Ebou Waggeh, one of Gambia's leading TV producers, presenters, news reporter and editors who is CEO of Wax Media, a multimedia consulting company.

His film credits include by not limited to CNN's Sights and Sounds of The Gambia, a documentary that firmly placed The Gambia on the tourism map, The Making of the Second Republic, a documentary chronicling political events that led to the 22-year dictatorship of Yaya Jammeh and In a Nutshell, a documentary about Gambia's groundnut industry.

Prior to venturing as media entrepreneur with leading Gambia companies such as Africell, Q-Cell,Gambia Tourism Authority, Gambia Ports Authority, Pristine, UNDP as clients, Ebou Waggeh wasPrincipal Producer of News and Head of the Current Affairs Department of the Government's Gambia Radio and Television Services (GRTS)

Mr. Waggeh covered the public forum with several news outlets in attendance to cover the conclusionof the newly formed Campaign to Bring ex-Dictator Yaya Jammeh and his Accomplices to Justice.  The video is a record of the testimony of some of the victims of Yaya Jammeh, in their own words.

We find the video of the Victim Forum to be riveting in a very compelling way that Ebou Waggeh can.  The video captures every moment of each of the victims featured in the most vivid manner as they tell their horrid and dehumanizing stories of torture at the hands of Jammeh's accomplices.

The video documentary will certainly form an integral part of the 22-year dictatorship that an entire nation endured under Yaya Jammeh.   We hope that the victims' individual voices will help tell a story that will galvanize the world into action, as we have seen in the case of Hissene Habre.


NOTE: It appears that because of the large size of the video, we will not be able to upload it to the interface of this blog post.  Consequently, we will try linking this write up to our Facebook page.  We hope Facebook accepts the video.  Let's give it a try and see what happens.
