If Gambia’s dictator Yahya Jammeh is not arrested in coming hours, Guinean President of Lasana Conde, might have Jammeh as a guest. Conde and Jammeh are close buddies. Over the past weeks, Jammeh has been busy shipping his fancy cars and belongings to Guinea.
The relationship between Jammeh and Conde stems out the days of late President Alasana Conteh. Conde, was once jailed by Conteh. Jammeh brokered peace between him and Conteh.
When President Conteh died, Jammeh propped up Conde to vey for the Presidency. He financed Conde’s presidential bid. This is a top state secret. There are very few people privy to the details of Jammeh’s role in financing Conde’s Presidency.
It is also important to note that Jammeh’s wife Zeinab Souma Jammeh hailed from Guinea. Her late Dad is a Guinea. She is from “Kindy” in Guinea.
The relationship between Macky Sall and Conde is not cordial. Like Jammeh, Conde too rigged the past presidential polls in Guinea. He used the military to arrest and torture the opposition. Senegal favored the Guinean opposition leader, which never went down well with Conde.
Conde will not handover Jammeh to the ICC if requested. Both him and Jammeh are not in good terms with Macky.
