Just finish reading the book and to be frank the author could have done better. The first chapter talks about the case of Deyda Hydara which to me makes no sense to start a book about dictator Jammeh. I understand the mystery surrounding his death and the relationship between the Author and Deyda. I think an intro about Jammeh and the events leading to July 22 1994 could have been a better chapter to start with. I did not read anything about July 22 1994 in the Book. Chapter 14 (THE MOST SIGNIFICANT EVENTS IN US HISTORY) was not needed for this book. Lots of repetition about same events.The Author should have work on his dates, Chapter 2 starts with "On Tuesday August 28". My question is what year? in chapter 3 he also mention " President Jammeh last night " again what date? for future readers.I understand and support Mr. Mbai's efforts to exposed Yaya Jammeh and his cronies, but i really think he could have done a better job of exposing Jammeh and his regime's atrocities by taking his time and research more about Jammeh. The book is not in chronological order. Hopefully the Author will come up with a better one in the Future.Thank for your effort in helping to expose this criminal.
The book is full of material information that can help investigating bodies to follow in pursuit of human rights violators in The Gambia .it further exposes that a country without a proper rule of law,is at the determinant of the masses.though hastily written,the details in the book are overwhelming and should be an eye opener to all Gambians .
This is the first hand evidences that has revealed how Yahya Jammeh continue to harm his country men and women with impunity to those carrying out henous crimes against humanity. Long live Gambia down with Dictator Jammeh.
The book is so easy to read and understand, a primary school graduate like my humble self did'nt have to struggle to comprehend it.This is a job well done.
Interesting, but poorly written.
