Gambia: Is Yaya Jammeh and the Army scheming to upsurge the will of the Gambian people?

Dear Gambians,

I am writing this in a rush.

There are currently very strange movements of the presidential guard unit of the Gambia arm forces as well as the Para military. They are right now busy filling sacks with sand and taking positions at various locations within the greater Banjul area particularly buffer zone and Westfield. What has been witnessed is really more than maintaining peace and security. Commanders were seen on the ground giving instructions to junior officers. I am really scared that something terrible might be witnessed by Gambia.

Efforts were made to bring to the notice of the coalition executive members of this new development to no avail. Hence the desperation to get this publish so that the world might know how tense the country is right now.

Efforts should be exerted by all concerned Gambians so as to free the country from being a battle ground in the near future. People should act now before it is too late. Those who have the connections should contact the various agencies and countries in the international community to intervene to preempt any attempt to subvert the country’s peace.
