Who Inspires Jammeh To Carry Quran?

Yahya Jammeh carrying the Quran whilst unable to read it.

The God-Fathers Or God-Mother who demonstrated the power of using the ‘Holier than thou religiousity and the symbolic significance of carrying the Quran’ to President Yahya Jammeh has undoubtedly committed a crime far worse than the very many others who lectured the dictator on how to manipulate and deceive Gambians. Who is he/she? Kairo News will not speculate but accusing fingers are being pointed at a single God-Mother and a couple of God-Fathers. We will not go into detail here until we put all the facts together. All we know is that Jammeh’s motivation to hold the Quran began during his early days in power when his religious affiliation was being questioned. Most people before July 1994 described the Lieutenant affectionately called Kanilai as an idol worshipper.

The African military is a product of the relics of the colonial institutions. Nowhere in Africa is the army, the police or their francophone equivalent the gendarmerie are in a way or form religious in disposition or practice.

The Gambian army is no different. In fact, the Gambian military is the home of secularism since it embodies men and women majority of who are not outright grounded in religious affairs. How then can the Gambian autocrat suddenly become the most visible and marauding Muslim preacher while occupying our nation’s highest office?

Who moulded Yahya Jammeh in carrying the Noble Quran, four prayer beads and the unexplained cane? Gambians desperately want to know the people who turned the former Junta Chairman into the biggest religious deceiver.

Those who advised Jammeh on this route have really transformed a religious illiterate, a mix animist-Muslim who is not grounded in religious theology or political science discipline to take advantage of our people’s open religiousity. The unforgivable sin is the creation and unmasking of a Chief Deceiver.

We want our readers to take ownership of issues like this. What will our political scientist, political activist and common intellectuals analyse the mask that is used to veil the sensibilities of our people in seeing through the fake masquerade going on for 21 years?

Those who made Jammeh walking around misquoting the Quran, swearing by the name of God, and subtle preaching to cover the pretence and falsehood have really done disservice to the Gambian people.




  1. There are some Imams and of course Madam F Tambajang who till this day use Quran and piety to lobby for political position.

  2. Dictator jammeh is a criminal who had mastered how ordinary Gambians think. Jammeh understand that majority Gambians takes Islam as a major factor in their decision making process though majority do not understand or do not have better understanding what Islam is all about . This is because True meaning and practice of Islam was mixed with traditional beliefs . Jammeh realized this about Gambians in his early days . He understand that he can hide behind the name of Islam and use it to win the hearts and minds of population majority of which believe that praying five times a day and talking about Islam is essentially the most important ground to support him . For jammeh to be seen as good practicing Muslim he needed to do symbolic appearance / gesture in his daily life which lead him to wear traditional African clothes / Muslim halftan and also to carry false books that are presumed to be holy Quran . Gambians didn’t know that jammeh is not a Muslim in the first place . Jammeh carry two distinct false so called holy Quran books , the small and the big one which are both false holy Quran that he carry with him and they look like the Quran holy Quran . The big one is the one jammeh always carry with him . It is made of cardboard which has strong outer cover . When majority of our citizens see jammeh with the Quran , they do not doubt him at all. These false holy Quran were never opened by jammeh and even GRTS cameras never comes close to these fakes books . They are used as propaganda tool and to falsify who he is. As a dictator , he knows that majority of Gambians believe in superstition even when they claim that they are Muslims . Jammeh’s self mystification can be seen daily in his activities. Examples in his tours or meetings you will see him throwing so called holy water to the people and even the so called imams can be seen in video footage of GRTS running after him . It is the majority of Gambian people lack of understanding the true meaning of Islam as well as their believe in superstition which enables jammeh to successfully use Islam in his oppression.
    Jammeh’s religious hypocrisy is also evidentially a reflection of population whose religious scholars also live such a life . As a result , the true meaning or practice of Islam is being hijacked. This is why when you meet a Gambian , they are quick to blame God or they will be quick to express their belief in God even when they committing horrible crimes . It becomes culturally acceptable to be lying , stealing and presenting false views while mentioning the name of Allah . Allah becomes responsible for whatever evil things that are committed in The Gambia because this is the belief majority has. Therefore , I think Jammeh’s criminality and majority of Gambian people lack of understanding Islam together with superstition , as well as their inability to ask questions , to pass judgment that a non Muslims cannot be president In The Gambia lead jammeh to use false Quran to win their minds . When a criminal knows a population lack understanding in what he does he can do anything to success .

  3. This 21st century dictator monster president YAHYA AJJ JAMMEH of the Gambia is mental sick. Why is he holding Quran even to his filthy toilet? I am sure the holy Quran was not written as a compiled book during the time of our beloved prophet MUHAMMAD (saw) until one of the four caliph. But non of those caliph or sahaba carrying or public holding Quran and TASIBEYA on their hands every where they go. If those caliph or sahabas used to hold and carry Quran everywhere they go, it will be written in one of authentic hadith but that never happen. Gambians, let’s wake up and stop allowing this idiot monster dictator YAHYA AJJ JAMMEH to fool us by carrying and holding the Quran everywhere just to show off. I don’t even believe it is real Quran because he has never open it to the public or open it and quote it from any surah. We should get rid of him by all opposition parties come together and get rid of him.

  4. Apparently, the so called quran is actually the box where jammeh keeps his cocaine and cigarettes
