After Gambian election Crisis, Now all eyes on Kenya’s Pres. election in 2017

 

Uhuru JAmmeh

Gambia’s former President Yahya Jammeh has left  the country in the wake of elections that ousted him after 22 years in power.

He boarded a plane to Guinea and from there will travel on to exile in Equatorial Guinea, regional group Ecowas says.

Mr Jammeh was defeated in December’s election by Adama Barrow but went on to challenge the results.

Mr Barrow has been in Senegal but says he will return to The Gambia soon.

In an interview with the BBC, Mr Barrow said he wanted to create a truth and reconciliation committee to investigate allegations of human rights abuses during Mr Jammeh’s time in office.

Marcel de Souza, president of the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas), said the military operation that had sent West African troops into The Gambia in support of Mr Barrow, was now ended, although some would remain to ensure security.

 

US newly elected President  Donald Trump has warned Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta against stealing elections in the upcoming August polls.

Speaking yesterday after meeting US CIA and other spy agencies in Washington DC, Trump said he will use President Uhuru as a case study of how he intends to deal with African dictators, this is after a the unfortunate Gambian election crisis that saw the newly elected President Barrow to be sworn in at the Gambian embassy in Senegal.

President Trump said he has been following the dictatorial tendencies in Africa by ruthless and heartless leaders inebriated with power. He said he plans to bring the nonsense to an end.

Trump, however, blamed the outgoing US President Barrack Obama for condoning dictators in Africa yet he had promised to free the people from the clutches of modern-day perpetual slavery.

“I want to make it absolutely clear that I am going to deal with any African tyrant especially those that steal elections and deny citizens their inalienable right to vote for their preferred candidate in a free fair and credible election. Very soon I’ll be sworn is as US President and I want to promise the world that I shall be watching with a keen eye each and every election in Africa. Very soon Kenya is going for elections and it is a blessing in disguise because it’ll be the first African election under my watch. The current President must ensure the polls are free, fair and credible. Any attempt to deprive Kenyans of their constitutional right will be dealt with harshly” Said Trump.

Trump was sworn in as US 45th President on the 20th January 2017
