UK based Gambians’ demonstration against Yahya Jammeh’s regime : London, Wednesday, 20th April 2016. Reporter for The Seereer Resource Centre and Seereer Radio : Tamsier Joof

On Wednesday, 20th April 2016, UK based Gambians turned out against Yahya Jammeh's 22 years regime amidst the recent killing of Ebrima Solo Sandeng (the UDP's National Organising Secretary) by Jammeh's forces, and Lawyer Ousainou Darboe's imprisonment along with several members of his United Democratic Party (UDP). 

The demonstrators started at the Gambian Embassy near Nottinghill Gate Tube Station - located in one of the affluent areas of  London before heading to Downing Street, official residence of the British Prime Minister. The turnout was less than expected despite a huge presence of Gambian nationals in London, but those who came to exercise their constitutional rights were united by a single purpose: to oust Yahya Jammeh from political power and put an end to what international human rights organisations describe as : a 22 year reign of terror, dictatorship, secret killings, kidnapping, torture and lack of democracy. Many of the people who actually showed up came from the North of England and the Midlands. Tamsier Joof, reporting for The Seereer Resource Centre and Seereer Radio joined the demonstrators and interviewed some of the attendees and organisers. 

Date of first broadcast on Seereer Radio : Wednesday, 20th April 2016 (partially, on Mamadou Fall's Open Mike Show). This is the full audio interview.  For segments of the interview played on Mamadou' Fall's show and commentated on by Tamsier Joof and Mamadou Fall, see Open Mike - 20th April 2016 (coming soon). You may also check out our live interview with Tamsier's source (X) on Mamadou Fall's Seereer Seex show broadcast on Monday  18th April 2016 following the brutal killing of Ebrima Solo Sandeng and imprisonment of Lawyer Darboe by Yahya Jammeh's forces (coming soon).

Other UDP members Fatoumata Jawara (Female Youth President), Fatou Camara, (Constituency Women’s Leader), Nokoi Njie (2nd Vice President of the Women’s Wing) and Lang Marong (Deputy Campaign Manager) were also among those arrested, and Fatoumata Jawara was reported to be suffering from severe injuries. Another female demonstrator by the name of Sabrina Mahtani was reported to be in a coma. Following this incident, Lawyer Ousainou Darboe's, leader of the main opposition party (the United Democratic Party (UDP)) gave a press conference from his home demanding the body of Ebrima Solo Sandeng and the immediate release of the prisoners.
