The Stinking Fart Of A Dictator

When a dictator farts, the stench affects everyone. When we say, let us see beyond our petty differences and take care of Yahya Jammeh, some people fake-ly nod in agreement. However self-delusional that may be, we are all in the mess. Yahya Jammeh want to take over all Money transfer businesses like he did with other Gambian base businesses.

 He is secretly talking with Western Union according to inside sources. But what he is failing to understand, many legitimate money transfer businesses were operating secretly, and they will all go back to operating secretly, which means, the state will lose out big time. But in the meantime, the stupidity will affect us all. Whether you sit on the fence or you speak or act against Jammeh, whether you say Jammeh forever, or not, his evil smell will drown us all.
President Jammeh has been tampering with the foreign exchanges prizes just to suit his pocket. He buys currency cheap, and allows the prize to rise and then sell. Then the prize is force down, he buys and then allows few weeks for the prize to stabilise, then he sells. He careless, whether this is in Ramadan, Koriteh, Tobaski etc..But it is our Gambian bitter pill; we may as well swallow it.

Black Africans Are Not Muslims for Arabs

We are not Muslims for the Arabs. Some non-Muslim Gambians and Africans tend to look at some privilege Arab Prince or Kings and attempt to insinuate that, they are wild and bad, hence indirectly we Africans should reconsider Islam. 
Some will even comment 'Look at what that Saudi Prince or Kuwaiti Prince is doing', which means, indirectly, even Muslims do that evil. If western Christians misbehave, is that the business of African blacks Christians?
For the record, those Arab Prince, Kings, Princess and so-call Royalties need Allah like anyone. They have no place in the Islamic tradition. If a Prince live wild and party hard, that is his business, hence, Islam is a Universal faith which does not belongs to any family, country, or dynasty. So please, take your Arab Prince sinning to the doors of the Arab Prince, may be such Prince lived all his life in America, Spain, Or England. May be he doesn't know silt about Islam.
Muslims are not guilty for the sins and crimes of others. The noble Quran states that, "every soul will bear the responsibility for its sins and mistakes". Our God (Allah) is very merciful, forgiven and always eager to accept the servant who turn to him in repentance. The political turmoil in the world are all big business underneath. From colonialism to slavery, it is nothing BUT for control of people and their resources, and of course, the big business need partners in our lands.

Let His Excellency have a breathing space!!

Banka Manneh is attacking him, Pa Samba picketing his US mansion,Jallow Mathew, compiling his victims list, Dr Amadou Scattred Janneh,Mai Ahmad Fatty globe trotting exposing his crimes, Sidi Sanneh even has new blog, focusing his eyes on him, whilst Pa Nderry M'Bai Newspaper, calls him all sorts of names...not to talk of Essa Bokar Sey's mic and critics, Fatou Jaw Manneh's oilly fingers also at it. Now when can his Excellency relax and chill out? Ramadan came and is going, you haven't relent. Some call him Tony Dabaa, some call Buki amna almet, he is accused of not functioning down there. Bamba Mass and Demba Baldehscrible on him also, the pressure is too much...
Hence our H.E reaction saying "western foods make some Gambian men impotent". Do you guys remember the rumors that, H.E's kids aren't his hard work, and that they are product of some soldiers...His Excellency has big ears and wide eyes. All your character attacks hurts, it bleed his heart. It makes him sleepless and restless. This is bad for his health, give him some break, at least for the one day of fasting remaining. Guys cease fire!! It is a Command from the secretary of Gambian spiritual healers, aka the Gambia Marabout Association (GMA). Thank you

A reminder to Jinns and effect of bad marabousm

This video is a detail explanation of how jinn affect people. Some by the initiation of evil magicians.

Bamba Mass explain Mansuwan Kunda (MSK) influence on Armitage Students.

Armitage High School for those who do not have the privilege to learn at this great School, the Sankore Mosque of the Gambia, the Misira University of the Smiling coast, I belief without doubt have missed an opportunity of a lifetime. This institution used to be the best in terms of academic performance in the country. A school of the highest competition per excellence where students pride themselves as masters of spoken terminology. Like any other schools in the Gambia, cause it has students who care little or less about making it big or some who allowed themselves to go astray. On the other hand even that cannot be compared to any other institute. Arbitrage is the only institute in the Gambia where a king's son cannot be distinguishable from a beggar's child. All are the same and treated as such. No fancy cars picking/droping students, no sense of favouritism towards a minister's child from a carpenter's child. 

Prayer times are respected likewise church times are never missed by Christians. Students regardless of their background repeat classes when they fail or get expelled for misconduct. Debates are more regular with fanfare on weekends. Regular checks on health and cleanliness round the clock with trophies to win for outstanding cleanliness. 

The idea of dry dance, I have never heard at Armitage may I must have left but during my day and before since 1927, we elect our own chiefs Alkalolu and other councilors without interference from government or School authority. Though I learnt there are some changes to that but all the same a lot still remains the same like boys don't visit girls domery visa vis, lights out, study time no disturbance, regular prayers and prayers before and after every meal. Can someone tell me how many homes or families behave or treat family matters like this in the Gambia from Koina to Kartong? 

On alcohol consumption and other unruly behaviours, Armitage is far far better than most schools in the Gambia because because even schools affiliated with Islam like the three Ahmadiya schools and Muslim high, some students drink alcohol where as at Armitage, it has never been that students would drink to the knowledge of teachers no! I was stubborn at Armitage yes but I would say I was lucky never smoked or drank maybe because my dad put a course on it or maybe I was striving to do well at school so that I escape 7 to 7 farming something I hated I don't know which was true but yes some people do some of the things but just for a while because the moment they realise it's affecting their performances and as a result, they could repeat they stop.

Armitage is no doubt the best institution that teaches and prepares students for the task outside school. It moulds a stubborn child into a responsible adult like myself and it exposes you to the fact that no riches or parental position can propel or catapult one from class to class but academic performance from hard work. I knew because when I remember at the ministry of education, I was called by then deputy Pam. Sec. begging me to go and teach not to join the army saying am too intelligent and can do better in teaching where I can go to college, do HTC then go to university, I realised studying hard had paid off. People who do not know me from Adam, taking out their hard earned money and giving me as pocket money just to convince me to self progress and thus saving my life. I would have been dead by now for sure. I had so much ego for the military because of the rapid promotions straight to cadet attached but after some thought, I choose teaching and here I am today thanks to Armitage.

My friends the school is just second to none. A home away from home, a social class set up found nowhere else, a village, town and city of its own where the wealth of tolerance resides.

Omar Joof on his experience At Gambia College: Dry Dance explain

  Dry Dance in fact means san alcohol! During my time at Gambia college we did review, but alcohol or weed smoking were never viewed as problems emanating from Dry Dance. We were however worried when we viewed it in terms of the failure rate. This itself was low, but we were concerned about certain girls who were regulars at Dry Dance and were failing. All we could do at the time was to encourage them to cut on attendance at Dry Dance.
From 1992 to 1995, we had two cases of drunkenness, and in both cases, the individuals concerned consumed alcohol off campus. The student leadership dealt with the cases without ever allowing them to get to the college authorities. In fact in one of them, we instructed a college employee to pay compensation to a student who was under the influence of alcohol and was taken advantage of. 
Dry Dance was organized by the social committee, there was also a student DJ. Refreshments were sold but as far as I was aware, alcohol was never made available .
Gambia college has always been a microcosm of the greater Gambian society. Religiosity has always been a marked characteristic of the college. I met many good Christians and Muslims during my training there and we put in the application for the college Mosque while I was secretary to The Student Islamic Solidarity Association (SISA).
However, student politics on campus was very dynamic, and progressive. During the Campaign period, all candidates for the various positions take part in public debates. There was a tremendous culture of lampooning and caricature. These publications were put out by secret groups whose members the contesting candidates mostly did not know. The practice of democracy was remarkable! The environment was free, and students can be found experimenting a lot of things which may be frowned upon in the larger society.
Gambians and Africans in general are very religious. It is the cultures of governance inherited from the colonialists which are secular. We all cherish this because while we like to question our politics on continuous basis, most of us shy away from questioning our faiths.

 I hereby express gratitude to our brother Suntou for coming up with a contentious issue which has enabled us to share our experiences in regard of the institutions of relevance to his topic. It was at Gambia College that I was introduced to the Dawa, and I became aware of the existence of some compatriots who have come to find an escape from the socioeconomic woes in The Gambia in Islam. Personally, I was fascinated by the tremendous potentials we have for effecting progressive change through social mobilization. As a Muslim scholar, I would like to direct Suntou's attention to the existence of a dual system of education in The Gambia in the shape of The Madarassahs and The formal schools; and the dangers and issues of social justice that scenario poses. There is a lot of ground to be covered in terms of research and generating knowledge in The Gambia. The potential for evolving concepts and constructs to jolt us out of the
current socioeconomic decadence is immeasurable
