What is Barrow playing at! ? Why extend the 'state of emergency' for 7 days? He will now have to deal with this matter after that time. It makes little sense and perhaps is an indication that he is unsure of what to do next. Watch this space. Many Gambians are getting fed up with his Presidency and lack of direction. Unfortunately like a lot of what goes on in' politriks' there is no strong opposition party and no opposition leader that people can trust.
