If you’ve been keenly following Gambian politics online over the past few weeks – you’ve probably caught wind of Lamin Jaiteh.
He is widely believed to be President Adama Barrow and UDP’s numero uno critic. In an interview with What’s On-Gambia, he accused the Gambian leader of misleading Gambians.
“President Adama Barrow is lying to us daily and he doesn’t have the concern of the people at hand. His government is so corrupt.”
When asked why he always attacks UDP, the father-of-two said, “The reason why I always attack UDP is that the party is so divisive which can cause chaos, which is not in the interest of our country.”
He added, “UDP supporters are so arrogant and aggressive on Gambians on social media bullying people like they did to Dr Lamin Conteh, a prominent Gambian professor based in the USA by luring him into sex acts and exposing his sex video on Facebook for all to see.”
Lamin described himself as a “man of the people”.
“I don’t see myself as famous. Even if I am famous and notorious, I am not happy about it because I am a man of the people and to see my fellow brothers and sisters suffer in The Gambia due to tribalism, nepotism, favouritism and party politics breaks my heart for real.”
According to the outspoken Banjulian, “New Gambia” is a scam and a failure. He said Barrow has no blueprint to get us to the “promised land”.
