The debate on accountability in The New Gambia

gambia-s-new-president-adama-barrow-holds-the-koran-during-the-inauguration
Tuesday, February 21, 2017 - 11:28

At the weekend Gambia partied. It’s been a time for celebration as the new president Adama Barrow formally took power and everyone – or at least many many thousands - came to the inauguration. But at the same time, there are new discoveries every day about what happened under the 22 year regime of former president Yayha Jammeh. Is this going to be a process like that of Hissene Habre – a many decades long wait and then an African solution?

Special plea to His Excellency Adama Barrow. Please don't make the same mistakes that former African leaders have made which have kept us far back from developments i.e, education, proper medication, good roads, positive political criticism, sound judicial systems but will like you to rule by the dictates of Allah which states that do unto others as you will like them to do unto you, besides that your Excellency as those saying today hosanna hosanna will one day say to you again crucify him. My humble submission you may have yours.

Until and unless African leaders start to answer to the cries of their people whom they have killed, maimed, exploited Africa will still continue to suffer, so let them answer to the call of justice and pay for their bad deeds. My submission

Hello everyone, In my humble opinion, we need to develop our nation The Gambia and Africa at large through honesty and a very formidable judicial systems selflessly, if not impunity and self opportunity will have their part to play. My apologies if there's bad language constructed.
