The National Assembly member for Serrekunda West, Hon. Madi MK Ceesay in an exclusive interview with the daily news said Gambians can never be deceived by politicians anymore.
According to him, the first republic Gambians witnessed a thirty long years of the PPP rule, during which one would not say everything went on well. This he said led to the first attempted coup of 1981 which saw some lost of lives. The coup attempt led by Kukoi Samba Sanyang a politician by then, who lost one of the seats in Foni to the PPP. That coup failure has subjected a lot of innocent politicians and their militants to violation of their rights in which many were humiliated by the Jawara government.
The worst beveled Gambians when the Jammeh coup followed several years later and succeeded. Many people were killed as per the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparation Commission (TRRC) revelations. On July 22nd, there was no bloodshed but the 22 years that followed marred with brutality and cross violation of people’s rights, including the right to life,” he added.
When he was asked about the debate surrounding the three years term in office, Hon. Ceesay said the groups behind the call for President Adama Barrow and his coalition to respect their own words, are very right. Gambians have graduated from being deceived by people they voted in on their own promises.
