A bitter row erupted between Dr. Njogu Lamin Bah and his mother over President Yahya Jammeh’s job offer, Kairo News sources confirmed. Bah was a former Presidential Affairs Minister and Secretary General who did his best for Dictator Jammeh only to be fired, prosecuted and sentenced for abusing his office. He was a beneficiary of the 2015 mass prisoner amnesty. Bah remains loyal to the man who used and abused him to the core. Like many so-called Gambian intellectuals, Njogu Bah has been waiting for Yahya Jammeh to recycle him. That opportunity recently arrived when he was offered a cabinet position. Bah wanted to fly with Jammeh’s offer of Foriegn Affairs Minister without hesitation. But his aging mother wondered why Bah would accept a job offer from a man who spares no one for bettayal and punishment. “Njogu’s mother threatened to “undress in his (Bah’s) presence if he accepted to join Jammeh’s cabinet line up again,” said a source, attributing the old woman’s defiance to grassroot opposition campaign of awareness creation. The campaign hinges on shedding light on how Jammeh entrenched himself in power through fair and foul means and how he continues to kill and sacrifice innocent Gambians some of who toil for him. Njogu’so mother is living with the fear of losing his son to a system that feeds on human blood.
Njogu had lived in the United States prior to his cabinet appointment in the Gambia. Many questioned the authenticity of his doctorate degree.
