Editorial: Just What Has Imam Baba Leigh Done?

IMAM BABA LEIGH(JollofNews) – For more than two weeks Imam Baba Leigh remains in the hands of government agents who took him to an unknown location and continue to hold him without reason.

The fact that a senior religious leader of Imam Leigh’s standing can be easily bundled into a waiting car by small boys and disappear without trace for weeks, is indicative of the depth to which moral has sunk in the Gambia.

And just when you begin to think that things have changed for the better in the country, another ugly episode of gross human right abuse will emerge to further blemish the already battered image of this wonderful nation.

What is even more mind bugling this time is the continuous silence on the matter by the regime. Despite all calls for sanity, the regime in Banjul stays mute over this most serious affair.
IMAM BABA LEIGH
Typical of the tyranny that has gripped our motherland for nearly two decades now, no one beyond a few politicians could raise their voice on this matter, again for fear of reprisals.

News outlets and radio stations have been shut down.

Mr Jammeh and his thugs have made sure that the citizenry is kept in total fear through intimidation, illegal detention and worse, disappearances.

Imam Baba Leigh is an upright Gambian with a human heart and a firm resolves to fight injustice. He has persistently fought against human rights violations against women, children and all mankind in the Gambia, in addition to his treatment of pertinent issues affecting Gambians.

A man who does not hesitate to denounce injustice whenever he sees one, Leigh is an asset in the Gambia and his freedom must be guaranteed. Any attempt to humiliate or subject such men of substance to harassment would fail.

The sooner Yahya Jammeh realizes that he is not God and would one they pay for all these crimes the better for him. If he chose to ignore this advise, he would be heading for the Charles Taylor way. It is just a matter of time.

Release Baba Leigh today and start to redeem yourself Mr President!

Don't waste your time talking politics. See how a Gambian poor woman became a millionaire just by buying and selling accidented cars, Very interesting idea. Go to (ACCIDENTEDCARS .COM) to see the various methods and companies she was using(ACCIDENTE DCARS .COM). A simple idea but who knew it before. WAKE UP AFRICANS. Don't waste your time talking politics.

YAHYA JAMMEH IS NOT A CREATOR BUT A RULER AND HE AND HIS DOGS SHOULD KNOW THAT ONE DAY OR THE OTHER HE WILL BE DOWN.TODAY HE HAVE THE POWER AND TOMORROW IS ALLAH WHO KNOWS.LET HIM BE TOLERANT AND BE FORGIVING.AND LET HIM STOP GIVING MONEY TO PEOPLE FOR FALSE STATEMENTS AGAINST HIS OWN PEOPLES.JAMMEH PUT YOUR TRUST IN ALLAH AND KNOWS THAT NO INFORMERS INFORMATIONS COULD KEEP YOUR TO LIVE FOREVER.YOU ARE NOT POWER BUT BEEN POWERED BY GOD,RETURN YOURSELF BACK TO THE ALMIGHTY ALLAH AND LEAVE YOUR SELF WITH HIM.

Lionking, if you dad is an imam, and you turn out being like you are, I have no doubt he must come from the ilk of imams who will support injustice in the face of justice. You do not even seem to have your facts right and you are saying all sorts to things.... Common!

Can someone please provide us with numbers of these so called Islamic Leaders so that we can bombard them with phone calls about Imam Leigh? Imam Fatty, Kah, Touray, Jobe, Drammeh or any other Imam in the Gambia. I am personally ready to call my Imam and take up the issue if I have his number. I will also let him know that I will not speak up for him when his time comes if he continues to stay mute about Imam Leigh.

Where is their so called constitution and their so called rule of law?Where is the title track(transpare ncy and accountability) of dictator jammeh`s 1994 coup d`tat?Dictator jammeh turn from a liberator to a crocodile liberator taking our country from bad to worst.FREEDOM IS NOT GIVEN BUT ALWAYS TAKEN:We need unity to take our freedom from dictator jammeh and his bandits.The Gambian intellectuals working in the international community should help the people/the country out of this misery and humiliation.Stop failing the Gambian mothers,fathers ,brothers,siste rs and friends who are secretly crying and for the pains and sufferings of vampire jammeh`s dictatorship.Again,you don`t need to be a politicain to help,in fact the problem in the Gambia is no more a political but a national issue.Waiting too long is leading the country in a disaster and doing something Now, is better,in order to save the country.
I wish Imam Leigh and other victims,the power/strenght to overcome these devils.

Lionking,

I have a Question for you sir.

Is there any provision within the Gambian Constitution that allows a Gambian citizen to be detained beyond the 72 hour rule, without his whereabouts being known to his family, or him to be denied access to legal counsel...or to know on what basis he his liberty is being denied?

If so...please explain the relevant Law clause or provision?

Imam Leigh’s “crime” IF ANY was for speaking against & condemning the un-Islamic nature of cold-blood murders of the 9 Mile II inmates Idolatrous-rituals where the so-called ungodly-Imams chose to endorse the malevolent act. According to reports, yaya jammeh’s deities proclaimed/foretold some bloodshed coming that will end his dictatorship. He was asked to sacrifice some human blood instead to pacify the events; hence the sacrifices in his evil mind. Imam Ba-Kawsu too was also kidnapped by yaya’s mercenaries & made to look to have disappeared on his own will. Allah sees & knows ALL, will reward yaya & his evil doers. INSHA ALLAH.

Junior,you are so right! Baba Leigh is just like any other Gambian. He is neither above the law nor he is too perfect to make mistakes. If he is only detained for speaking up against the Government's decisions,then I will urge the government to release him immediately. On the other hand,if his arrest has anything to do with our national security,then I urge the Government to process his case just like the cases of those who were charged with the same crime/crimes before him. An Imam is not God neither he is a president or a king. He is only a leader of one Mosque out of thousands of Mosques in the country. My dad is an Imam since before I was born. He preaches all forms of inhumane behaviors in the planet. An Imam cannot just forget all the other forms of crimes in the country and dedicate all his time to politics. Imams should be preaching against things like: rape,murder,hom osexuality,gamb ling,theft,pros titution and of course,governme nt bad behaviors.
