US Citizens Urged to Leave Gambia Immediately

 Following a “Town Hall Meeting at the US Ambassador’s Residence” lasting two hours yesterday morning, American citizens were briefed on the current political climate in The West African nation of The Gambia and advised to leave no later than January 10, 2017.




The meeting attended by over a thousand American citizens currently in the West African tourist paradise either as tourists or on business, were urged to immediately relocate to other neighbouring countries or better still, return to the United States without further delay.


According reports, the outcome of the meeting was predictable as Gambians everywhere remain edgy and the news from the state-owned radio and TV (GRTS) has not helped in allaying citizens’ fears. In the vicinities of Banjul, Serekunda, Bakau and the peri-urban areas, military personnel are often seen digging at street corners and mounting heavy machinequns as well as truckloads of sandbags being dropped at such locations.

It was also revealed that the probability of a very cautious and strong travel advisory from the US State Department was more probable than otherwise. “Rest assured, very soon, you will see a strongly worded advisory to that effect”

Background

On Thursday December 1, 2016, Gambians went to the pools and massively voted out incumbent, President Yaya Jammeh, who has presided over the mini West African nation for a hellish 22 years. The following Friday morning, Mr. Jammeh, a notorious liar and autocrat, rang up Mr. Adama Barrow, the 2016 Coalition Candidate and conceded defeat in a gesture of choreographed magnanimity that only psychologists can diagnose.

A week later, Mr. Jammeh true to his character, recanted his concession speech and went as far as declaring the election null and void, calling for fresh Presidential election and rebuking as well as threatening the Chairman of the IEC-Independent Electoral Commission plunging The Gambia into a political logjam that now potentially threatens its peace and stability in a region replete with ethnic strives and political violence. 

Three days ago, The IEC’s Chairman, Mr. Alieu Momar Njie, went into hiding and subsequently fled The Gambia following credible threats to his life.

Despite repeated appeals from home, regionally and internationally for calm and a gracious transfer of power reflecting the sovereign will of the Gambian people, the despot of Banjul, a clownish bandit of tremendous individuality with an insatiable penchant for violence, remains defiant culminating in the town hall meeting urging US citizens to leave Gambia immediately.

  8. America exit.I don't know but I had mixed feelings towards this decision. I pray it favours the citizens of Gambia and of course it's recent ruler and I just hope the United States of America view this decision from the angle of the Gambians being that, The U.S are somewhat vindictive. Fighting for sovereignty doesn't mean ye should be foolish.

    1. GEJ is not power intoxicated. Not many leaders in Nigeria can do what he did. If he had gone to court against PMB, he would have won.
      Jammeh, pls do the needful and handover.

  13. African rulers and their sit tight mentality! They prefer to die than to leave. Even after elections they still don't want to go. So greedy. I pity that country the people have been through hell.
