The links to all the meeting videos:

The meetings are divided in English, Mandinka and Wollof.

Part 2/7

Part 3/7

Part 4/7: The UDP leader spoke in English in this video.

Part 5/7 This speech is in Mandinka. Darboe talked extensively on Yahya personalising the institutions of the Gambia. Calling things by the name of Yahya's daughter and son. The practise of making civil servants work for Yahya like slaves. The farm managers of Yahya are mostly soldiers. Darboe also talk at length on the difficulty farmers are facing in every evenue of their work. The leader state that Gambians should feel sorry for themselves,as the price of basic commodities are unaffordable. Darboe commend the collective leadership of the Gambian opposition. To me that is a brave stance, as politics is never about highlighting the strength of an opponent. The diffifculty the Kombomkas are facing at the hand of the governement. He said Kombo is now lacking farm lands, he said the government has taken wide areas of lands from the people of Kombo central making them tourism development area and housing estate.

Part 6/7

Part 7 of 7

Alh. Ousainou Darboe in action. Brilliant talk and brave in addressing relevant issues at the time. The meeting culminated in the arrest of Femi Peters. An unlawful action to say the least.
The UDp leader's speech was vibrant and personate, we want more of this.
