For more than 19 years, Gambians have been on a journey of fact finding mission about why their president behaves in peculiar ways. Kairo News too has been on this journey until last week when we finally cracked the nut. What our investigation has found was that our president had lived and grown with bitterness. That bitterness is following him like a nemesis.
Our State House revealer says President Jammeh’s bitterness, which started at an early age, has caused permanent scar on his heart. “Take your pen and write what I am telling you,” the indefatigable revealer tells Kairo News. “Our president is a wounded person and is not a happy person, despite holding the country’s highest office. He is bitter with everybody and everything, to say the least. Both his father and mother were absent in his childhood life. The president’s mother dumped him and left when he was barely six months old. Jammeh was left in the hands of Benedict Jammeh’s mother who breastfed him. Until they grew up, Benedict and his siblings thought they shared the same mother with President Jammeh. Aja Asombi Bojang has never been part of Jammeh’s life. And to add salt to a new injury, his father died when he started growing up.”
Our source hopes Gambians will now understand why Aja Asombi has no influence on President Jammeh. “How can you listen to your mother when you are mad with her for dumping you at infancy? The truth is that our president’s life is full of bitterness and pains. He was a loner until 1994 when he was asked to present his family since he did not have a wife or child. It was then he went after his mother who was in Cape Point at the time. Even his military colleagues at Depot did not know he has a mother.”
Our source adds that Jammeh’s bitterness is felt in his dealings with even his family members. “He accuses his family of neglecting him and leaving him in the hands of outsiders. Jammeh thinks people who should have helped him failed him. This is why he sometimes feels like taking away what he gives out to people,” the revealer adds, promising to spill more beans, including how the late Lt. Almamo Manneh was framed up and killed. “Get ready as more secrets are on the way. Your mission to inform the public with the truth is a noble one.”
