  1. If he can cure AIDS, why is he wearing gloves?

    I am a frequent to The Gambia and I have to say that this man (Jammeh) is held in high contempt by both gay and straight people in the country and abroad. Gambians and the Gambian press are too frightened to say anything about him because of the very real danger of arrest, imprisonment and even death.He has also opened himself up to charges of hypocracy and ridicule since he has claimed to be able to cure H.I.V. and A.I.D.S, and has become a laughing stock worldwide. He presents a rather pathetic figure comparable to the worst despots and facists in history because of his absolute determination to rule his poverty stricken country with a fist of iron, while having the heart of a devil and hiding behind the skirts of Islam. If only he had the intelligence to spend his country’s meagre income on roads, infrastructure and health, he would be able to capitalise on the tourist industry which was once growing but is now in sad decline. Gambia and Gambians are quite wonderful people and it is a crying shame that they are subject to this mans irrational and ultimately irrelevant presidency. May he be booted out of office soon so that The Gambia can get it’s smile back and the people can elect a leader who is for them, not for himself. Gary Stuart – London
