Gambia is a peace-loving country. President Jammeh is a leader in peacekeeping. The Jammeh Foundation for Peace (JFP) was created by President Jammeh to help eradicate poverty among Gambians, improve agricultural production, and sponsor educational opportunities for needy students.

The Gambia is a tolerant and equal for gender and religion. President Jammeh created his foundation, the Jammeh Foundation for Peace. Jammeh’s foundation has a hospital that is sponsored by the president and provides medical services to every one irrespective of age, religion, sex and gender or political affiliation. This is very progressive for West Africa, and much praised in the international community.

The Gambia stands out above the crowd in Africa for its public health. Since the year 2000, there have been no reported cases in the Gambia of diphtheria, hib meningitis, Japanese encephalitis, mumps, pertussis, or polio. President Jammeh made it a priority, and that is why it happened.

Uhm, no, it actually is not. Maybe you need glasses, honey.

And if you are black yourself, I feel sorry for you calling yourself such a degrading nickname. You need to grow up.

right then, where do i start:

a president that does not allow freedom of speech is corrupt, full of crap and the worst ever thing that the gambia needs or want.

so he managed to get a few roads built, a few houses built, but at what cost to the people. why is there no FREE vaccination for children against the killer malaria - there is enough money, but because of his creed and dictatorship no one can fight him.

why are the journalists who do fight him end up in prison for no reason? they have gone against the freedom of speech rule.

if gambia is mad enough to think that he is doing something for the gambia then you deserve him. he is a self serving, greedy, corrupt, president that is doing no good for the gambia.

its either his way or no way. peaceful bullocks - the people have no choice but to obey as they think that he is hopefully doing good.

cure for aids the president is an idiot and with his stupidity he will bring the gambia to its knees.

it is a beautiful country and i do not dispute this, but don't expect me to think the president is doing good.

but the people are not saying anything but working out how they can get out of their beautiful country rather than fight to over turn the government.

corruption is everywhere, but at least we have the freedom to vote with our feet or even have our point of view with persecution.
