The innocent offerings to the Satanist cult is slowly swallowing ambitious Gambian males’ eager to prove their worth to the unsatisfying cult leader. The more innocent you are, the sweeter the taste of the blood drops, tears, pain, anguish and disappointment. It emboldens the powerful maniac, it increases ego and pride. Life is not merely for pleasure, but through pain you enjoy the sacrifice, and Gambian youths want ‘to be somebody quick’ on the cheap.
It is now close to one year since The Gambian dictator start to slowly sideline his already damaged former Secretary General in the person of Momodou Sabally. The University of The Gambia’s mass produces middle-level elites are reported to be too eager to throw their weight behind President Jammeh. As a result, many of the graduates blindly give loyalty to Mr. Jammeh as civil servants rather than work as independent members. The mindset is difficult to decipher. However, some observers blame the lack of exposure to international higher educational institutions and the rigorous personality such atmospheres of learning build into a civil workforce.
Momodou Sabally is now truly tasting the bitter end of being isolated, dumped and discarded by a man who lacks compassion, emotional sensitivity and forbearance towards his one-time allies. Sabally’s protracted lawsuit is device in such way, he will not know his faith in the courts, nor how his former boss the ‘big man’ is eyeing him. The strength of President lies in the fact, he not only own the Gambia’s middle to senior level civil servants, but he equally own their hearts and minds.
Momodou Sabally like many other wounded young men whose aspirations and personal standing were raised beyond their expectations and then brought down to earth are still at the mercy of the cynical and manipulative dictator. The control mechanism he employs to further enslave the miseducated young men still rules supreme.
Momodou Sabbally should be a perfect example to all the new graduates from the Gambia university. They must factor in the reality that, their poverty and expectations cannot be solved overnight. They must be willing and ready to sacrifice time and comfort in attaining a dignify career in the future. “If it is too good to be true, it certainly is”.
Many of the young men brought down to earth are quietly blaming the ‘frigid and emotionless’ gangster woman, Madam Isatou Njie-Saidy, however, they must reason that, Njie-Saidy is a damaged goods. The proverbial devil’s advocate can never do any good, her pretence is just on her uncaring face, which is now unwomanly and damningly unattractive. Hence, she cannot provide any respite to any young ambitious Gambian youth.
