Why Jammeh Blocks EU Monitors

President Yahya Jammeh has once again made international headlines for wrong reasons. Mr. Jammeh’s refusal to allow the European Union election observers in the country has raised doubts as to whether the December 1st presidential contest will be free and fair. It also demonstrates the weakness of the Independent Electoral Commission and that its Chairman Alieu Momar Njie is only a figurehead bereft with decision making powers. In reality, the powers of election accreditation belong to the IEC Chairman. It is a typical Jammeh style to appoint officials and deny them the right to make decisions.

The Jammeh government has also followed its normal tradition of leaving the public in darkness, despite having a journalist as the Information and Communication Minister.  Most Gambians thought the appointment of Sheriff Bojang would have allowed free flow of information. What is the difference between Mr. Bojang and other stooges of Yahya Jammeh? They are all toothless dogs.

The Gambia government’s decision to remain silent has pushed Kairo News to dig deeper into the story in a bid to extract chaff from the wind. President Jammeh’s close associates have become the target of our investigation. Based on their account, Yahya Jammeh’s refusal was “built out of fears of losing the election. He has made the decision after receiving intelligence briefings that the EU had already recruited and trained local election monitors. These monitors have been told to record and report any slight irregularity on election day,” our source said.

Like dictators before him, Mr. Jammeh is blaming outsiders for his potential downfall. He sees the opposition coalition t-sumnani swinging across the Gambia but Yahya Jammeh is heaping blame on the EU for “striving hard to bring down my government.”

In the meantime, the abandoned dictator will soon wrap up his upcountry campaign tour, the goal being to make plans for a final strategy to hold on to power. His close aides say the President seems to have no option left on the table. “Jammeh thought of postponing the election but that will seal his leadership fast,” said a Jammeh aide.



  1. No to European observers because Eu never accept anything from Africa so why we do?? Let’s be honest,but yeah we have to welcome OAU observers Africa as priority

  2. Unbiased Prince GB

    Gambians tears over Yaya Jammeh’s brutal ruling of the country for 22 years are almost ending and Yaya Jammeh and his men are still living lost.

    Allahu-Akabarr! Lord of Zayn and Master of all Protectorates. Wa-Allahu Zoul-Fadlil-Azeem.

    Please my Gambian fellows, start praising Allah more from now till the end of this month. Tell all speakers or leaders of the opposition rallies to also read out ‘Ayatol Qurs’ or get someone of high Calibre to do it before the beginning of any of their speeches. It’s extremely important that they do it and should not fail please.

    Also, inform all Gambian family heads of especially those yearning but rallying behind the opposition for change of regime to give out charity next Monday the 28, first thing in the morning before the sunrise. It must be done with basic and simple meal. May Ya-Allah accept our sacrifice and martyr for all blissful purposes.

    Yaya Jammeh is already defeated by Public Willpower even before polling day as we many already know but, he is planning to defy and being ever ready to create a bigger mess than expected for Gambians while Muslims and Christians can stop it happening by supplicating and summoning for divine interventions in their favours before Yaya Jammeh strikes.

    Thanks and WA Salam

  3. Soninke,
    I was about to write exactly the same thing. If President Jammeh had refused ECOWAS and African Union observers that would tantamount to a serious cause of concern. But where he hadn’t done that, it’s all fine with decisions against the imperialist institutions from the West. They have over hundreds of years been herding our destiny as if we were and still are objects without human conscience.
    Those days are over with our Pan-Africanist leaders. Not western anointed leaders like Macky Sall. The Frenchified puppet President who would jump into Paris at any call from Francoise Hollande.

  4. Yaya Jammeh, that will not help you punk. Gambians want you gone Dec. 1, 2016.

  5. Dirty blood thirsty dictators in the continent are a greater concern. Dictators whose idea of Pan-Africanism is killing their fellow citizens in order to impose their atrocious-selves on innocent people with fake Pan-Africanist prophecies. It must be due to those dictator’s self-proclaimed prophecies that justifies to them their endangering and taking of human lifes on their cause of false Pan-Africanism. Let see how far we’ll get with these bloodthirsty dictators herding our destinies like sheep on the slaughters.

  6. Do Eu will accept African mentors /observers?😂😂😂😂😂 or will white peoples will arrest they war crimes for African??please no Eu liars or fake ICC African nations need own justice own words not from the west as get enough shit 😂😂😂😂

  7. What the hell are you talking about @Soninke? Articulate or stuck your gaseous exhausts. Why are you inserting stupid hieroglyphs in you comments. These images won’t say a sh– for us. I have seen your type in the west acting the biggest stooge for the white employers in the Wests of below-average- democracies. I have seen people who gabble like you and sell their own brothers to the plantation owners of the rogues of the west in the 21st century. Idiots are looking for food they gonna eat today but never care what sustains a better future for their children, and their children too. One big hypocrisy of the black people of my generation is that, even when they stabbed each other in a household dispute, they draw themselves away from their culpabilities to put the blame on an outsider or satan.
    Where it comes to lining-up the great Pan-Africanists, you and @Babu Soli, the SHACKLED brain, will be ranked among the rats, in the struggle for a lawful and properous Africa.

    Can’t kill, torture, maim, force-disappear and incarcerate fellow citizens and clinch to power in the name of Pan-Africanism. Haven’t we heard of true Pan-Africanists and Pan-Africanism?
    My message to @Soninke is; know what you are talking about!
    My message to dictators of Africa is; please don’t think you can topple Pan-Africanism like you have toppled democracies in your countries. You can’t make new Napoleons in Africa to unite it and bring about your kingdoms in it.

  8. Soninke,
    Thanks a lot for your patriotic Pan.Africanist and Black Consciousness stance. You are really a true son/daughter of the Gambia and Africa. May Allah bless you for respecting, guarding and loving our Gambian-ness, our African-ness and our Black-ness.

  9. Thanks a lot for your what..! You’re sh-t patriotic Pan-Africanist and black consciousness breeds. Help @Soninke to swell and burst his airbrains out with your toxic and meaningless writings. Can you do anything better?

  10. Hippocrates like You me Bourne do you think Gambian are stupid like you??😂😂😂😂 we can’t lie just to make happy fake guy 😂😂😂😂😂

  11. Africa needs strong 💪 leaders not who listen from London or Paris as we get enough shit from,and our politicians knows that they need to tell the truth about homosexuality in our Muslim countries otherwise no vote I’m 100%sure that’s the one of main confusion witch can bring lots of problems in the future, people are not expecting anything good from you guys but if you respect them don’t touch Islam in The Gambia 🇬🇲,,,time will tell truth inshaa llah ,,peace in The Gambia may Allah protect us from shit politicians,,Ameen

  12. Dogs who bow like you must have been the first misguidance with your spiritual potentials to turn cultured Gambian citizens into homosexuals. I bet I have never been aware it exists in the Gambia. However, fake Muslims, dirty-hearted nincompoops like you won’t even be aware when fake propaganda is fattening your iodiot minds. Most of you such muslim are just so called because you dwell in SIHIRR. You are types who feel glory in the wrath of others. If homosexualism becomes a thing amongst Gambians now, it most be that double standard and liar of a dictator who declared the Gambia an Islam state to be going around another door staging wrestling shows and parties at Kanminlai. I swear I do pray that their comes about a peaceful solution to the Gambia’s predicament. You should pray the same so, otherwise I swear we vwill see who created this homosexuals in the Gambia. I swear by Gods name we will see who created them in the Gambia. We will come to what you are craving for with your homosexuals hypocrisy. IT IS NOT GOD!

    You are just contempt with tears now but you’ll shed them in blood one day, INSHALLAH. In the new Gambia it is conscience against conscience. It is regardless of family ties or friendship or whatsoever. Truth shall reign.
