From the comfort of our living rooms it may seem stupid but i know the reality is far from stupid, one has to live and experience it oneself. I return to the Gambia in 2007 and worked their for 4 years, it is an incredible insight into the daily life of many Gambians. My own parents advice me to be careful of who I express my opinion to, my mom who dearly loves me was glad when i took a job abroad. She said she always fear the worse for me. This is not an isolated story, many Gambians will tell you the same or similar sad tales.
The fact is people live in fear, people are afraid how opinion might be perceived, they afraid of who is listening, dismiss this if you wish but its the sad fact.
Before election, people in the villages in foni were ask to contribute each D10 towards Jammeh APRC registration, clearly most people dont have money, but everyone was all too aware that this idea was more like APRC survey of which village is not going to vote for them. For heaven sake most of these people don't even have decent meal to put on their table, yet they cannot say no. You said a battered Spouse will one day speak out, im thinking some day Gambians will speak, i hope we will all be around as students of history.

Is the marble system still the way people cast their votes?

Then of course it is not free and fair!

People are intimidated to vote for the President. Everywhere spies will be watching for those that don't vote the 'correct' way.

Sister omega, I really don't understand your support for this undemocratic system.

Lily and Somita, I agree with your postings.

I wonder where the 'tipping point' will be and Gambians will stand up to the President and demand change?

Sister omega please get your facts right before you start spinning them here. Somita is right and the situation in the Gambia is a pity and there is less to be desired. UDP always rejecting the results, that I can say is not true. In 2001 for example Darboe called and congrats Jammeh for his victory but alas you ignorant and arrogant made was talking to Darboe so rudely I was even piss why Darboe called. He did that to avoid trouble but Jammeh was talking to proof to Gambians that Darboe a coward which is not true.

From every drop of energy that Sister Omega so lavishly exerted in selling the battered image of a brutal killer, it comes out very clearly that this Sister Omega person is happy to see Gambians slain. No sympathy whartsoever. No concern for Gambians trapped under the electric lethal claws of a ruthless Yaya Jammeh.

It so strange that someone with simple human skin will be happy to watch a despot destroy whole nation of more than 1.7 million people.

Sister Omega, your position is well known. Now carry on.

"No protestations about the IECs 11 day campaign rule. And for goodness sake what were the names on that electoral register. Did the parties scrutinise the roll to make sure that the names are genuine. And when will the opposition insist on having a more modern voting system, where it will not be possible for someone to stuff boxes with stones (marbles) matching the number of fictitious names on the register for each constituency.

This system suited Jawara and jammeh is also benefiting from it. A docile opposition that just accepts jammehs diktats, and plays the game according to rules determined by him. They have nobody to blame but themselves."
