IF former enablers were not kicked out, would they today be in this so-called struggle?
IN PARTICULAE: If former enablers, like SidiSanneh, and his Gang now in this so-called
struggle were not kicked out by Yaya Jammeh, would they today be in this so-called struggle castigating that regime? Would they?
AND if and when former enablers like SidiSanneh and his gang in this so-called struggle are attempting to hijack, or have hijacked segments of this so-called struggle, to promote their twisted agendas, and promote their selfish interests, would it not be PRUDENT, WISE and Plain Right to call them out, discuss their prior complicity, question their allegiance and scrutinize their motives?
YES, I submit it would be PRUDENT, WISE and PLAIN RIGHT to scrutinize and question the likes of these former enablers in our midst in this so-called struggle, as well as their motives, agendas and intents. FAILURE to do so, it will not only be adverse and detrimental to the health of this so-called struggle, it will be a GREAT DISSEVICE to the Gambian people, who continue to be the Victims of this mess of the Jammeh regime, which former enablers, like SidiSanneh, helped created.
We, in this so-called struggle, owe the Gambian people that much and we owe ourselves that much in this so-called struggle to question and scrutinize the likes of SidiSanneh and his gang of former enablers and future enablers in this so-called struggle.
I am AWARE that after the publication of this piece, puppets and hypocrites will be coming out in full force attacking Abdul Savage and the publisher of this piece. I expected that. It would be a miracle if that do not happen. HOWEVER, I await to see if fair-minded and unbiased Gambians and non-Gambians who understand the damage these former enablers have done, and continue to so, will SPEAK UP. Are these former enablers not using social media like facebook, and one online radio in particular, to vomit their cabbage? Yes, I submit they are.
AGAIN, I submit fair-minded and unbiased Gambians and non-Gambians are able to see and tell all this façade masquerading in his so-called struggle as “journalists”, (albeit online journalists, particularly Facebook ones and online radio ones), “human rights activists”, “freedom fighters”, and so on. They have branded themselves into many names and continue to do so, it’s a wonder that with all these “brand names” and “titles”, the predicament we find ourselves in beginning to look like deja Vu all over again, only this time around, within the last two years, they are adding a new kick, twists and turns to this so-called struggle, courtesy of former enablers who now find and use social media and select online radios to spew their divisive ploys and twisted agendas.
The Million Dollar Question is this: If former enablers now in this so-called struggle were not kicked out by Yaya Jammeh, would they today be in this so-called struggle castigating that regime? Would they?
How convenient we sugar-coat and bury stuff under the rug. The TRUTH hurts, it is bitter, but swallow we must. Seek and speak the TRUTH, no matter how inconvenient it is to loved ones, friends, family and or strangers. Are there not Upright and Dedicated Gambians at home and abroad, in this so-called struggle, who were not enablers? YES, they are. Are they not qualified and capable to manage the Gambia post-Jammeh? Yes, they are. WHY put trust and confidence on former enablers who have once deceived and broken that TRUST? The Gambian people deserve better than former, current and future enablers.
ALSO, WHY all the sucking up and giving undeserved credits and singing unwarranted, useless praises, here and there, to questionable, shady, self-centered characters, former enablers and some self-centered groups, who put their individual or group’s interest ahead and in front of National Collective Good? WHY? What’s in there for you?
Some of my brothers and sisters in this so-called struggle need to do some thorough self-examination reassess ourselves, thoughts, intents and actions, re-evaluate several other aspects, and try to re-group in a newer, fresher dynamic approach, sequencing unity of action, to face and deal with a shared and common predicament.
ONLY us can face and deal with the Gambian predicament. The Americans, British, the Chinese, Ghanaians, Nigerians or any other country will do it for us. AND SO, all these so-called appearances by select people, to any country or Organization, including the UN, ECOWAS, AU, EU and so on, are just that…..useless waste of resources and time that could be better utilized in other ways through Unity of Action.
ON A FINAL NOTE for now, I once again appeal to all to come together in Unity of Action to face and deal with a shared, common and vested PREDICAENT.
Thank you and God Bless the Gambian people, and let’s continue the discussions.
