President Barrow doesn’t know Dictators and he has no clue as to how they operate. They are cowards. From the inside, they know they are defeated but from outside, they portray the contrary.
For the case of Jammeh, He knew the crimes he committed verge on crimes against humanity
He knew no amount of amnesty can save him from the gross human rights violations and economic pillages he committed at home and abroad
He also knew that no sitting Gambian President can guarantee his freedom and security.
He knew president Barrow is desperate to win and need APRC votes at all cost but not he Jammeh’s protection.
He knew GANU is not a winning party yet he opted for them to make his acolytes believe that he is still relevant.
He knew he has no legal clouts as per our electoral laws to dissolve an executive which was constituted through an AGM in which he was not even a delegate
He’s attention seeker and like everyone to talk about him.
He knew the preparedness of the International community and human right organizations and their commitments to to bring him to justice.
The Yankuba Touray case was a warning shot as the immunity clause he had relied on proved invalid.
Dictators are cowards, even if they are losing, they pretend they are winning. In the end, they succumb to and surrender.
Jammeh’s dissolving of the APRC executive has severe consequences for he Babili. He no longer will enjoy the unrealistic defending of his key sycophants such Rambo and FTJ. They will expose him more and more but that wouldn’t change public perception of these blind supporters. Their dishonesty and disrespect to victims will forever hunt them.
One by one, The Truth will come out. The pursuance of Justice, is no witch-hunt. The long arm of the law will eventually catch up with the run-away tyrant and them all who have spent the past years doing his bidding at home.
