Is Gambia Reaching the Political Breaking Point? 

02 Dec

For many years now, the Gambian situation has been deteriorating, but in recent months, it has in fact, worsened. After several years of economic decline, the situation in the Gambia is becoming too desperate and unsustainable. Therefore, important questions to be asked are: Is the Gambia reaching the political breaking point? Could the killing of Ebrima Solo Sendeng, the incarceration of Ousainou Darboe and Jammeh’s continued threats against Mandinkas and Christians have finally provided the tipping point that will bring to an end the unhappy period of Yahya Jammeh’s 22-year old mis-rule? The Gambia’s political crisis appears to be building up to some kind of dramatic climax. This Presidential Election, it seems to me, will represent a tipping point for the future direction of the Gambia.
