Former Lt. Col. Lamin Gano has yet to say anything damning about Dictator Jammeh’s evil system! As the Mandinkas say, taba bon eeye tonya fo [tell plain truth and stop beating about the bush].
‘If Jammeh does not fear elections, them he will not buy votes nor register foreigners. People keep repeating a fallacy that ballot boxes are stuffed. It is real people who vote from polling station to polling multiple of times by washing away the indelible INK. The APRC has been busy telling people to give them their voter’s card details. Why? Because they want to secretly fill the nomination forms of Jammeh and also gauge their vote target.’
Lamin Gano did not say how Jammeh’s system works, all he is saying is what people know already.
We got concrete intelligence that the APRC fraudulently uses soldiers to vote in multiple polling stations. So the ex-servicemen should telling us about things we already know. We need them to do is to spill the beans by telling us about the unknown. Dictator Jammeh uses Alkalos and Seyfos to buy local ordinary people with these words: “this is about this world; we gain nothing in politics in the hereafter. Sell your vote, election will not defeat Jammeh.” Words like that are used to discourage and convince simple people to sell their votes for as small as D300. Confiscation of a voter’s card means one opposition vote is removed from the equation.
If Jammeh does not fear elections, he will neither buy votes nor register foreigners to vote in what is purely a Gambian affair. People keep repeating the fallacy that ballot boxes are stuffed. It is real people who vote from polling station to polling station multiple of times by washing away the INK.
Yahya Jammeh is not perturbed/disturbed by his wickedness revelations because he only possesses the power to be evil simply because he wins elections fraudulently.
Soldiers vote in their camps and then vote in more than 5 other polling centres. Hence, multiple voters are the key secret of the APRC. Even the late Baba Jobe (former majority leader of Parliament) was said to have revealed this secret to a confidant in prison.
Whilst Gano has every right to blend in and talk politics, let him understand that Gambians want to get inside the layers of secrecy that holds Jammeh in power.
With or without a coalition, these evil sellout Gambians will vote multiple times if the fraud is not exposed before polling day. Gambians therefore need to talk to security officers, they need to be enlightened. You don’t have to vote for Jammeh. It is only you in the polling booth.
Stop being cowards and enablers of a rotten system that leaves you with nothing. We need former soldiers to talk intelligently not on torture and other crimes alone. Yahya jammeh cannot be a dictator. A psychopath will never change, the only cure is to reveal all his fraudulent or dirty tricks in the open and create talking points out of them.
I think the guy’s help is badly needed to bring Jammeh’s atrocities and fraudulent practices to light. Looks like he knows something!. Guys on his errand don’t usually smile at his face like that especially when the Alh. Mad Professor and Doc. himself isn’t smiling a toothy one.
I think smart people have long time ago identified that Lt col Gano is still Jammeh’s supporter and enabler despite his cheap popularity in his latest unintelligent political propaganda . Here is a man who shamelessly congratulated mr Ousman Sonko who escaped from The Gambia despite mr Sonko alleged involment in various human right violations during the time he served as a commander of presidential Guard and also as a interior minister. Mr Gano’s despicable congratulatory message to mr Sonko indicated a state of mind of an individual who resembles the former Iraqi information minister , “Baghdad Bob” under Saddam Hussein’s regime , and who made so many repulsive and unfounded claims . Mr Gano’s ridiculous political comedy and parody has no place in this difficult period of our country’s political discourse. He continue to advocate for present and ex officials of the regime without taking any personal responsibility for the lies he arrogantly articulated to the families of disappeared military officers during 2006 alleged military coup and also crimes he witnessed as chief military spokesperson and the aide de camp to Dictator Jammeh. The evidence of mr Gano’s lies to the families in which he denied any knowledge of detention and disappearance of his fellow soldiers at the time can be found at the foroyaa newspaper publication in November 2006 . Therefore , mr Gano is not the right person to preach to Gambian people what we ought to do since he was not truthful , honest and has failed in his responsibility to speak truth to Gambian people when he was asked about the disappeared soldiers . It is in mr Gano’s best interest to see the continuation of current regime officials in power when the Dictator Jammeh is remove from power so that he and many of his fellow military officers who have witnessed and contributed to atrocities during their tenure will be spared from facing justice. It is the same reason that mr Gano continue to support the candidacy of mr Mama kandeh who was part and parcel of APRC regime political oppression as a National Assembly member for ten good years . These former officials have no interest to talk about human rights violations and corruption that continue to occur under Dictator jammeh’s watch while they pretentiously campaign for political change . Gambians are not stupid to elect former abuser and supporter of human right violations .
Before mr Sonko’s escape from The Gambia , mr Gano has called on United Democratic Party not to put presidential Candidate for this December presidential election . His call was meant to put false belief that udp will embark on revenge when the dictator is remove by udp party . Mr Gano is fearful of his own future knowing fully well that he was privacy to so many atrocities during the time he served as top military leader. Diaspora and Gambians in general should be careful of such a camouflage propagandist who had previously dined with the dictator without saying a word about corruption and human right violations. Disapora media should Question mr Gano to explain his past record and what he knows about disappeared soldiers whose families and loved ones are truly looking for answers rather than to give him free publication for cheap propaganda. I believe that mr Gano is one of the most dishonest officer the Gambia’s Military has ever produced. This is based on his continue refusal to shed light on past atrocities he has witnessed during his tenure in the military and and also his continue propaganda for the regime on the false pretext that he is advocating for peace and security. Mr Gano has failed to remind himself that without justice , peace and security are impossible to achieve. Let justice guide our actions toward the common good so that we May live in peace and unity .
Thank you Max. This Gano guy is a hypocrite and lack any conscience about the suffering of the Gambian people. They have been helping in bringing more confusion in the struggle just to prolong the struggle against the dictatorship. People should ignore them.
Max you hit the nail on the head. I was very suspicious of the this Gano man when he first hit the online media.
He only scratched the surface of issues and hardly talks about his own involvement in vindication of torture and tyranny.
He sounds very hollow and subtle, masking a insidious venom of a green snake. Time will tell as Allah guide not evil doers. However cleverly they act, their deceit will be brought to book before their death, at the time of death or after death.
Thanks guys . I think faturadio and freedomnewspaper should challenge this Gano rather than giving him free publication . Gano has no credibility and integrity at all . He is shameless and selfish Individual who is looking for cheap popularity . Gambians with clean record should come out and speak up if not we will have the same crooks and dishonest people taking our country in wrong direction again .
