Gambian Dictator Secretly Records Private Conversation With President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

17 January 2017 / Berenice Mulubah

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

Mr Jammeh has jokes.  He had the nerves to ring Mrs Sirleaf, chairperson of the regional bloc Ecowas, and appealed to her to help provide Supreme Court judges to preside over his election petition.
The phone conversation was broadcast on State television, smh.   Mr Jammeh said he want to resolve the election dispute peacefully through the court in line with the provisions of the Gambian constitution.
He also told Mrs Sirleaf  that he had filed an injunction at the supreme court.
President Sirleaf stated that it is unfortunate Mr Jammeh had recorded the conversation without advising her of his intention.
“Unfortunately, being the person that he is, he recorded and televised the conversation without advising me of his intent to do so,” she said.
“Let me make it very, very clear. There is no change in Ecowas’s position. The constitution of the Gambia must be respected. My only duty was to take his appeal and pass it on to the mediating team.”   Check out the video below

Alice, whose name means 'peace', has worked through the civil war and Ebola to do her job. She delivered her first baby at gun point at the side of the road.  In her three-decade career, she did not stop working even during the epidemic which claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia in 2014 and 2015.  New mothers who Alice has cared for and supported through their pregnancy have called their daughters after her or if it's a boy, named him Alex.
