2. OJ calls on Jammeh to grant amnesty to death row inmates

Monday, January 06, 2014

The leader of the opposition Peoples Progressive Party, PPP, Omar Jallow alias OJ, has called on President Yahya Jammeh to be magnanimous enough to give amnesty to all death row prisoners, starting from Lang Tombong Tamba and Co to all prisoners who have already served 10 years and above in prison.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with The Point at the weekend, OJ expressed hope that the year 2014 will be the year of open society in The Gambia, whereby the constitution will be the guiding principle and the government being very tolerant of the independent press, opposition parties and other divergent views, opinions and beliefs.

‘‘It is only then that we can build a Gambia that will have a very genuine and vibrant democratic culture, whereby respect for the rule of law, human rights and good governance, which are the fundamentals for peace, progress and prosperity for The Gambia, will be respected,’’ he said....

4. Are you Ready? GMC Leader Challenge to Gambians

By Mai Ahmad Fatty,

Mutual recriminations are decimating our resolve against tyranny. At the heart of this folly is the unbridled positioning and jostling within the struggle for personal and group advantage for what is often described as ‘post Jammeh era’. Well Jammeh will not just disappear by hoping that he does. While some continue to indulge in this fanciful inclination of hoping against hope, only concrete action will get us there. Instead of closing ranks to end Jammeh’s rule, some are engrossed in assuming the role of self ‘anointed’ transition leaders at the end of a dispensation that is prodigious at reinventing itself. Misplaced priorities, self before country and fierce antagonism in out-performing each other particularly in the art of the negative, seriously threaten the unity and progress of all opposition forces, both at home and in the diaspora. These are dangerous vices we cannot afford to entertain any longer. ....

1. Burama Jammeh to GMC Leader ‘Yes we are Ready’!

The Leader/Secretary General GMC

The Gambia Dear Mr. Fatty

Yes We Are!

That’s an answer to the subject of your recent posting -­#8208; Are You Ready?. Thanks for challenging the nation. You mentioned and I quote “Well Jammeh will not just disappear by hoping that he does” -­#8208; I wrote long ago “HOPE IS NOT A PLAN”. Not claiming ownership but simply in agreement. I’ve also stated many times that this problem will neither be eventually solved in cities in Europe or America nor by outsourcing to none Gambians or few Gambians. We have to be that solution......

1. Gainako Editorial: The PPP Resurrection May Force Political Change in Gambia’s Opposition Structures.

The recent announcement of the resurrection of the old PPP party can only bring new dynamism in Gambian politics. Not only does the party have more experience personnel like O.J and BB Darboe who have been in the political scene for years, but they also have a record to run on compared to the currently existing political parties like the UDP, PDOIS and NRP who have never been in government as parties. The resurrection of the PPP will do a few things to Gambia’s political establishment. First, it will force the parties to take themselves more seriously and rejuvenate their party bases. They will be forced to be more active or risk losing their bases which were originally PPP bases and to some extent NCP which is no longer in existence.

If the PPP were to come up with young and more dynamic leadership especially selecting a strong Gambian woman to head the party backed by young educated Gambians and experience former government personnel and politicians, they will be a force to be recon with in the political arena. It is an undeniable fact that Gambia’s current opposition parties have equally reached the end of their first political life cycle and are due for reorganization. For example the UDP is at a cross roads with its current leader Ousainou Darboe reaching his political climax and may not be eligible to contest elections anymore in Gambia. There is no publicly known viable successor to Mr. Darboe which is likely to throw the UDP into internal political turmoil which may lead to selecting a leader who is less known to the country. The PDOIS though well-established will always remain PDOIS as they are not open to change not only in leadership but political process and messaging to the people which is not selling well. In the case of NRP and GMC these two parties currently only exist as one man parties with GMC’s leader in exile and no other known executive members open to the public.....
