Why Not Retreat And Re-calibrate!

Burama Sanneh: Let’s pause and ask ourselves!

My fight for the Gambia is purely and solely for the good of the country and her people. In doing so, I have a yardstick that I use to measure my gains, constraints as well as where I go wrong. This is why my first goal is to end dictatorship, bring back democracy and then hold back to see if I am contributing to the life of the people or I am now confusing the minds of the people I fought dictatorship for and brought back democracy. These and so many other important aspects of the New Gambia need thoughtful and careful approach. I have seen and known comrades whom I thought have the same feelings and ideologies for my beautiful Gambia, only to realise that these are nothing but sheep in wolf’s clothing. My candid opinion to those long pretentious freedom fighters is to retreat to their bases and recalibrate about the consequences of their current style of activism. Please ask your yourself whether you are helping or shattering the very government you bragged to have sprung to power? The kind of confusion you are creating within the minds of the people you promised the change will bring to them in comparison to what they see daily only because you choose not to be part of those who sacrificed to give their best while you sit back and criticise. I will only add one more thing, no amount of criticisms and self claim importance will yield you any result in your desire to distract the leadership nor change the tie in your favour come hundred more years. The worthy citizens of the Gambia have decided that and even our bipolar population acknowledge this fact. Your only choice left is to join the boat before the sea waves sink you.

    This is true. I can give an example of Gitteh who erroneously claimed that the president and Darboe appointed one Ms Badjie as First Secretary inviting criticism, even abuse on the minister of foreign affairs. When I, with many years of work experience at both PMO and PSC, explained to him that the minister or the president could not have made such appointment because it is not their responsibility, all I got from him was a tirade of abuse. This is moral decadence of unimaginable proportion.

    • Mr Jawneh, people like Gitteh were Jammeh’s enabler who ran to Canada to seek political asylum. They are not true freedom fighters. He joined the struggle three years ago. He was a former intelligent operative who was on Jammeh’s personal scholarship in Canada . He is not a credible guy , therefore please do not waste your valuable time with such people who are looking for cheap popularity. Currently, the self proclaimed job seekers are the noise makers and many of these people were part and parcel of Jammeh’s terror machine and propaganda. The core freedom fighters are seasoned outstanding citizens with impeccable character who fought to free our country from military dictatorship. Mr Burama Sanneh is one such guy who since day one has campaigned against military dictatorship. These are people I have utmost respect for and admire their sense of direction and honesty. Mr Gitteh is an attention seeker .
