Morikebba Camara, The APRC Face Behind Deportation Faux

      The architect of deportation faux!

The man in the picture above has been busted more than a week after he had thrown Gambians into state of panic. Morikebba Camara, a native of Nyakoi Kerewan in Upper River Region, abused his rhetoric eloquence to spark fake news that the Gambia’s governing coalition government has forged a secret deal with the German authorities to deny Gambian immigrants employment opportunities before deporting them home.

“I was among immigrants at a refugee camp in Germany who contributed our little money and supported the coalition until former President Yahya Jammeh was defeated,” Mr. Camara said in a widely circulated audio. “We have also called on our families and friends to vote for the coalition thinking a change of government would solve our problems. But that was never the case because the UDP led coalition government has told the German government to deny Gambians the right to work. They have seized work permits of Gambian immigrants,” Camara said, explaining how he had regretted supporting a coalition that dashed his hopes.

Morrikebba’s audio message had created firestorm online, with opponents of the coalition government turning their daggers at Foreign Affairs Minister Lawyer Ousainou Darboe, blaming him for everything under the hot sun. The issue had soon turned into a political football, especially on of social media. Some gullible Gambians even tribalised it. None of the venom spitters bothered to authenticate the credibility of the message and the messenger.

The UDP social media activists would not sit by and allow the haters to destroy their party and its leader. They went into full swing underground investigation until last night when their efforts paid off. Woohoo! Morikebba Camara has had his cover blown. The next minute his picture flooded the internet. In reality, the false peddling man is not living at a refugee camp. Camara has lived with his family in Germany for over 30 years. Besides, Morikebba Camara has never been an opposition supporter. He has been and still a strong member of the ousted APRC. He has in fact named his child after former President Yahya Jammeh.

Most people wonder why an elderly person of Camara’s caliber would stoop so low. His action is measured to rally Gambians against voting for the UDP in the April 6th National Assembly elections.



  1. Is this Morikebba or Morikending from Nyakoi Kerewan or Nyakoi Taibatou or which village in Nyakoi? Please clarify. I know people from Nyakoi are very decent and straight forward and they stood against Jalllow Kanilai for all these twenty-two years. Remember, the great people of Nyakoi were the first in the nation to send a PDOIS MP to the National Assembly and we made the place a very uncomfortable place for Yaya Jammeh. Our hard fought image and reputation is under threat and this so called Morikebba/Morikending seems to be mysteriously unknown to most people from Nyakoi. He is definitely not from Kerewan as you mentioned or Taibatou as other audio messages circulating indicated. Please do us a favor and tell us who this Mysterious Kending is so that we the people of Nyakoi can take remedial action!

    • Thank you Lamin for swiftly reacting to this story, as a native of Nyakoi. This man’s picture is clear enough to be identifiable, and if the natives of Nyakoi cannot identify him, then the writer (s) need to come back and clarity this story.

    Well I thought yaya jammeh was the worst imbecile but I guess its human to be wrong sometimes. Mr camara taken unpatriotic, and evil stupidity to new dastardly heights. Woo to him

  3. Regardless of this idiot’s geographical birthrights in the Gambia, I think any efforts that are intended to generally vindicate people or regions from their collaboration with Gambia’s former state of dictatorship of atrocities, human rights abuses and impunity is mistaken. One rotten tomato may still find its places amongst a basket of fresh ripe ones. What if I say, once I had a heated row with another Gambian from Nyakoi who said he would join Jammeh to kill anyone or any forces who would attempt to topple Jammeh’s misrule of 22years….This was sometime after the Dec. 30th statehouse attack. Such an idiocy expressed by one person from Nyakoi shouldn’t in anyway hold or put people of Nyakoi in one basket.

    Nonetheless, it is not expected of the decent art of journalism to deliberately associate or judge people and places with characters like Morikeba Camara.

  4. Whereas diaspora may be residence to some of the most intelligent and resourceful Gambian citizens, it may as well be hubs for some of the most terrible, horrible and gluttonous Gambians. Definitely speaking, I should say some Gambians don’t make me proud to be Gambian and I guess I don’t make such proud to be Gambians either because they love a begrimed Gambia.
