Gambia’s President Yahya Jammeh, speaking last night at the opening of the country’s Parliament in Banjul, in the presence of foreign diplomats and important dignitaries said he will not hesitate to lift the moratorium on the execution of death row inmates if there is no halt on the nation’s growing homicide cases.  Mr. Jammeh noted that after the moratorium on the execution was put in place by his government last year to preserve the lives of the already condemned prisoners, there has been a fate of gruesome murder cases in the Gambia, which he says had contravened the moratorium. “Therefore, this situation is unacceptable and will lead to the moratorium being lifted without any further notice,” Jammeh tells a panic stricken parliament audience, who thought that he was going to resume the execution of the death row inmates. But Jammeh tried to allay the fears of the gathering, but with a strong warning that the murders of innocent Gambians must stop.

“In recent times after the moratorium on the execution was put in place, there has been a fate of gruesome murder cases which contravenes the moratorium government have put on the execution of condemned murderers by the laws of our country.  This situation…. I can realize that everybody is looking at my face. It is not a pleasure to put anybody to death, but it is also not acceptable for anybody to eat your “Benachin” and go and take somebody’s life. Therefore, this situation is unacceptable and will lead to the moratorium being lifted without any further notice,” Jammeh warned.

“Therefore, it behooves of all to continue to spread the virtue of nonviolence and the rule of law. Disputes should not be settled using brute force, which often leads to fatalities. Rather we should seek peaceful resolution of disputes by where it is inevitable resorting to law enforcement agencies and the law courts. Nobody has a right to settle a dispute with a machete, knife, broken bottle, or whatever device you use.”

While reaffirming his government’s zero tolerance against murder, drug trafficking, rape, economic crime, corruption, tribalism, and all social vices hampering national development and peace, Jammeh said his administration is on the process of passing a law, which sought to control the carry of weapons.

“That being the case, we will also institute legislation to control the carrying of weapons, or whatever nature for hunting. Most young people carry knives,” Jammeh said adding that light weapons should be controlled in the interest of maintaining peace and stability in the country.

Mr. Jammeh spoke at length about the need for Gambians to jealously safeguard the country’s much cherished peace. He said his administration is determined to root out criminality in all its manifestation including criminals in uniform. Jammeh said wearing a uniform doesn’t exclude, or indemnify members of the security forces to engage in corruption and crime. He admitted that some members of the security forces are engaged in drug trafficking. He said such members of the force will be dismissed and prosecuted according to the dictates of the law. The uniform is not a license to traffic drugs, Jammeh told servicemen.

Mr. Jammeh also said his regime is making significant strives in fighting crimes. He adds that criminals in the country can run, but they cannot hide. He want Gambians to work with the police and report suspected crimes before its commissioning.

All manners of criminal behaviors will not be tolerated, be it in the police, or the Immigration Department, Jammeh warned. He added that he has received complaints that some members of the security officers at the airport are in the habit of extorting money from tourists. Jammeh said any payment of money requested by members of the Immigration Department, or sister security forces, the person being asked to pay the money should ask for a receipt. He said if a given officer fails to produce a receipt, the matter should be reported to the DG of the Gambia Civil Aviation, or other relevant authorities.

For the first time, Jammeh has spoken passionately in favor of diasporan Gambians, who are victims of police harassment at the airport and other border entry points when they visit home. Mr. Jammeh said Gambians in the diaspora who brings in mobile phones as gift for their loved ones should not be taxed. He said the harassment of diasporan Gambians should stop with immediate effect.

“I received complaints of Gambians coming home being harassed or taxed for carrying mobile homes. That practice got to stop. The harassment of Gambians at the airport or any entry point must stop. That is unacceptable.  I have people everywhere and they got a number to call to report,” President Jammeh said. He said Gambians in the diaspora worked so hard for their money and should be treated with respect on arrival at the airport. He added that the NIA and the Immigration are in the business of harassing our nationals residing overseas. He said any officer caught harassing diasporan Gambians will regret it.

Mr. Jammeh praised the Fire and Ambulance Services for being professional. He said the firemen are hardworking and have never swayed from their duties unlike the police and some elements of the NIA. He said some NIA and police officers are giving a bad reputation to his government by collecting bribes and harassing visitors.

Jammeh reminded police Chief Yankuba Sonko that the two years cease fire that he signed in his office has been violated. His expectations on Sonko and the police have been compromised. Mr. Jammeh said he has no other alternative but to preserve the reputation of his government if the police has been found wanting on its duties.

“The police will complain of a vehicle problem, that there is no fuel, while some of them are in the habit of using police vehicle to date women. The two years cease fire has been violated,” Jammeh said.  

“For the army, I have warned them twice and they know…. They either go home, or be taken to court if caught trafficking drugs.”

Jammeh urge complaining civil servants to resign if they think that the salary paid to them is too small. “If your salary is too small for you, please leave. There is no point for you to take money from others because salaries are small... then leave. Corruption doesn’t pay. If the salary is small just resign,” the President tells his workers.

“Building a nation requires a selfless sacrifice. I have done that on many occasions while in the force. I used my own money to fuel my official car. Japan is developed because of its productive society. We should all sacrifice for the development of the country,” Jammeh added.

Mr. Jammeh also deplored the way Gambians residing overseas are treated when deported to the country. He vowed that any country that put nonviolent Gambian citizens on handcuff and deport them into this country will live to regret it. He said he will in turn deport two of the foreign country’s nationals with handcuff in retaliation. Jammeh swore to the Koran that all future inhumane deportation of Gambians residing abroad would be avenged by his government by deporting two nationals of the given country.

“Don’t take our poverty for granted and think that you can brutalize our people. Don’t think that you are big and rich and can mistreat our people.  Diplomacy is about tit for tat. If you maltreat, or deport a Gambian unlawfully, we will also deport your citizens,” said Jammeh adding that Gambians are often deported empty handed into the country after residing in Europe for more than twenty years. Jammeh said the west should allow Gambian deportees to return home with their properties. But he said our people are being thrown into aircrafts empty handed with handcuffs.

“No person has ever been beaten in this country because of being white. Gambians are very tolerant people. We are not racist people. Nonviolent Gambians are deported into this country with handcuff. I am not saying that no one should be deported, but people should be deported based on grounds. This practice of handcuffing Gambian deportees is unacceptable. We are poor but we are dignified people. Those who handcuffed our people, we will arrest them on arrival at the airport and deport them too to their country. I will make sure that I will deport two of their citizens,” Jammeh vowed.

Mr. Jammeh also used the occasion to send out a warning to homosexuals. He said gays are not allowed into the Gambia. He said he stood by his previous declarations. Jammeh said he has no regrets for his anti gay policy.

“Homosexuality is anti-humanity. I have never seen homosexual chicken, or turkey.. If you are convicted of homosexuality in this country, there will be no mercy for offenders. We will put you in the female wing of the prison,” Jammeh said.

“We want the population to grow. There will be children in this country. Homosexuality is anti-god, anti-human, and anti-civilization. Homosexuals are not welcome in the Gambia. If we catch you, you will regret why you are born. I have buffalos from South Africa and Brazil and they never date each other. We are ready to eat grass but we will not compromise on this. Allowing homosexuality means allowing satanic rights. We will not allow gays here.”

Mr. Jammeh also reminded his colleagues about the detractors both at home and abroad trying to derail the efforts of his government. “Nation building is a continuous process. To my brothers and sisters in the diaspora, let us join hands and develop this country,” Jammeh pleaded adding that Gambians need unity on purpose to develop the country. He said the economic superpower that the country yearns for can only be achieved if people are united and work towards the common good. Mr. Jammeh also said he want Gambians to lead in investment in the private sector.  

On the Kenyan looming political crisis, Mr. Jammeh appealed to both parties to put aside tribal politics and work towards reconciling their differences. “Violence and tribalism will not move any country anywhere. There is no tribal war in Europe. Why are tribal wars taking place in Africa and Asian countries? We should live as one people and build our countries. Let us forget about tribes. We should be one people.  To my brothers and sisters in Kenya, I want you to resolve this dispute peacefully,” Jammeh concluded.
