Jammeh is his own enemy by simply failing to adjust with the times.

One of the biggest challenge for the new Government will be Civil service reform. Many have been terminated, sacked, reinstated ten times over. Morale is at its lowest but Jammeh’s departure will no doubt bring news hopes but I can assure you that it was only the fear factor but all the civil servants are against Jammeh. Even the cabinet.
