Mr. Lamin Jarju

The President is not bothered by the plight (justice) for Jammeh victims who underwent serious human right violations.
He’s not bothered by Jammeh’s looting of our resources and disrespect of citizens repeatedly for over two decades.

President Barrow has never for once mentioned the word “victim” or “accountability” in his quest for re-election.

All of a sudden the President became worried and concern for Jammeh addressing GDC meetings. He’s concern is centered is not for us, but for him and his family. Jammeh taking part in GDC campaigns and convincing supporters to deny Barrow their votes and vote for GDC is what angered and triggered the President to react but not anything to do with the interest of Gambians.

The best time to have stood for Gambians and demonstrate to Jammeh the seriousness of his crimes, was a long time ago. Any attempt to do so now is a mere manifestation of fraud and frustration over a spill milk.

Few audio conversations of Jammeh with the APRC were leaked, the government was never bothered or raised any alarm to such at the time.

Jammeh and Barrow are both protecting their interests. While Jammeh should be worried about the accountability that always him rather than distracting voters, Barrow should tell Gambians why anyone should trust him after creating so many mess in the country.

What happens after December 4th, depend on us (voters).
