The source, name withheld for security reasons, said he has been following developments at State House since the colonial era. “The fact is that State House devil does not entertain rudeness in this compound,” the source told our Banjul correspondent. “Anyone who manifests open rudeness does not survive here. You will easily get into trouble.”
The source cited examples of former State House staff who perished for being “too rude.”
“Don’t you observe how the likes of the late Alimamo Manneh, Musa Jammeh, Tumbul Tamba and Kawsu Camara [Bombardie] ended? All these people were once proud of their rudeness,” our source said. “They manifest rudeness in how they talk, behave and even torture people.”
Our source accused Bombardie of reaching the height of rudeness before he fell from grace. “He demonstrates rudeness in everything he does in and outside State House walls. He was rude even the way he followed girls,” our source said.
“One thing is clear is that all these rude people cannot say they have not been forewarned. All of them have been personally warned to be respectful because the devil here does not accept rude people. They refused to listen until they find themselves in trouble,” our source said. “My message to State House staff – civilian and security – is to behave themselves well if they don’t want to incur the wrath of the compound’s devil.”
