Although we are all eager to see Yahya Jammeh tried some of us are here calling for facts not fiction stories from self made heros! I for one can tell you all that NO officer would have EVER DARED disobey Yahya Jammeh’s orders in his face and then live here with us to narate today. I say NO to that!!! Anyone who had done so would not have remained here today to narrate it in a defiant way. Let society not turn these commissions especially the TRRC into a market of medals for self proclaimed heros! That is something some of us will NOT respect at all. Now that Jammeh is gone a lot of “hiding heros” are emerging. Let’s look at ourselves in the mirror and be honest before saying certain things or trying to sell our own stories to society.
Do many Gambians know that there are witnesses who said that former IGP Sonko once disobeyed an order from.Jammeh when he was asked to order PIU to shoot and kill three to four prominent opposition members few days before Jammeh left? True or false, there are police officers ready to corroborate that story and they spoke to me directly during my recent trip to Banjul. Has anyone ever seen me write it or seen us call Sonko to brag about It on the media? I have never met Sonko in my life and Sonko himself knows better. That is to say, If I Essa will even think about praising him or anyone else for that matter. Regardless, this is a story some believe in and are ready to corroborate! Disobeying orders can be in different ways. However the way some are being anointed as if they stood before Jammeh and then refused to carry his orders right in his face is false! That is why when some of us see individuals stand before us oday selling their stories as if they were the bravest before Jammeh, we would turn that into nothing but a bluff.
Look folks let’s find out the truth, set the records straight dispense justice and stop entertaining these self made heros!
Some.of us have seen worse situations and we know what a hero really means.
I stand to defy that anyone trying to show us bravado after Jammeh left. The heros are the voters period. No one would have ever faced Yahya Jammeh and tell him in the face “I REFUSE TO CARRY OUT YOUR ORDERS SIR” AND THEN STAND HERE TODAY TO NARATE IT!! I MEAN NO ONE!!!! For those saying so or those propelling these stories for them I say to you be careful I know more than you can imagine. Stop this foolishness and let us work towards finding out the facts not fiction stories!
