NEW SG MADI JATTA TALKS ABOUT WRITING TO AMBASSASOR MACDONALD PROTESTING ABOUT AN OLD PLANE NJOGU BAH BOUGHT FOR JAMMEH!
The new Secretary General Madi Jatta has a “Superkanja mouth.” He can’t keep state secrets. He talks too much and brags a lot about his new job as SG. Madi has started discussing openly about assignments given to him by President Yahya Jammeh to help fix the mess created by his predecessor Dr. Njogu Bah, who bought an old rack plane for the President with the help of the former US Ambassador Jackson MacDonald without the duo providing proper paperwork to satisfy the air safety of the plane.
Our agent planted at the state house confronted the new SG Madi Jatta about the new plane sitting at the airport since last November. He wanted to know why the plane was grounded and who owns it. Madi then started running his mouth. He informed our agent that the plane belongs to President Jammeh and Njogu Bah foolishly secured an old plane, which is about forty years old for Yahya Jammeh without consulting anyone in Banjul for professional advice. The Gambia Civil Aviation Authority was kept out of the loop throughout the sale transactions carried out by Njogu and Ambassador MacDonald. He said the plane was flown to Banjul without any “record of maintenance” and air safety data report.
According to Madi Jatta, the raging President has instructed him to write a “strongly worded” letter to Ambassador Jackson MacDonald of the Jefferson Waterman International Lobby Firm to protest over the old plane that he and Njogu Bah secured for him. Madi informed our agent that he has since written the letter and was addressed to MacDonald to shed light on the situation of the old aircraft.
It is reported that the plane was bought for $30 Million US dollars. But there was no paperwork accompanying the sale documents to vouch for its air safety and past maintenance inspection records. Madi Jatta said the President is very upset and he is not comfortable travelling with the plane. He said that the plane might experience safety issues if used and as such it has been grounded pending proper documentation from Washington DC.
Madi Jatta appeared very excited when talking to our agent. He is happy to execute such an assignment for Jammeh. He told our agent that Njogu Bah messed up big time by buying a plane for Jammeh without ensuring that all the necessary paperwork was provided before the finalization of the sale. Yahya Jammeh is contemplating revoking the sale. He felt being lured into buying an old crab plane.
Madi Jatta said if MacDonald and his team fail to meet the President’s demands this could strain the relationship between Jammeh and his new Washington lobbyists. He said Jammeh sacks Njogu Bah largely due to the plane issue and other projects that he (Bah) sat on at the State House. Bah has been moved to the Information Ministry. He was the guy who signed the multimillion dollar lobby deal contract that was reached between Jefferson Waterman International Firm and The Gambia Government. He got fired three weeks ago.
Jammeh is likely to walkout from the contract he reached with JWI. JWI is a lobby firm. Its staffers are mainly former CIA officers and Directors. The firm’s Vice President is Jackson MacDonald, http://www.jwidc.com/profiles/jackson-mcdonald/the former United States Ambassador to the Gambia.
Speaking to our agent, Njogu Bah confirmed that he was indeed tasked to buy the aircraft for Jammeh. Bah informed our agent that he acted under the President’s instructions to buy the plane.
It was through Njogu Bah that we learned that Yahya Jammeh was yearning for the Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney to win the elections. Jammeh said the Republican party is more pro blacks than the Democrats. He cites General Colin Powell, the first black to be named as Chief of Defense Staff by the former American President George Bush.
Njogu said that Jammeh prefers the Republicans than the Democrats. He said Jammeh was praying for Mitt’s victory so that Jackson MacDonald and his team can help secure a state visit for him to the Whitehouse after Romney’s swearing as America’s President. But it later turns out that Barrack Obama became the winner of the elections. Jammeh’s hopes of making a state visit to the US dashes away.
