Systemic corruption and mendacity are the new existential threats to the Gambian state: The judiciary is dysfunctional and led by a highly conflicted Chief Justice who once wrote the following words in a Supreme Court ruling, Jammeh v. Attorney General in 29 November 2001:

[21.] “…Supremacy reposes in the Constitution, whether or not such is expressly declared by that instrument and not with the National Assembly or any other organ of state. Section 4 of the 1997 Constitution provides for the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. It reads as follows:

This Constitution is the supreme law of The Gambia and any other law found to be inconsistent with ANY PROVISION of this Constitution shall, to the extent of the inconsistency, be void.”

Any proposed “New Draft Constitution” Bill at the National Assembly is clearly inconsistent with the Transitional and Consequential Provisions of the 1997 Constitution particularly Section 232(17).   And yet, here we have a sitting Chief Justice advocating for an illegal proposition in order to overthrow the Supreme Law of the land.

Recently, we also witnessed a gang of incompetents on a façade about a so-called security sector reform. The government Spokesman regurgitated some malicious lies, violated the dignity of a patriotic soldier Omar Sarjo, and exposed the wickedness at the heart of the current government.
