Where two or three distinguished scholars are gathered, you will most likely hear them talk about ‘trajectory’ – a path, a pattern; a progression. Yahya’s walking from known to the unknown comes to mind?
Clearly, The Gambia is charting an unknown political trajectory. What, with bungled democracy, lethargic government, bonfires, corruption, impunity and lack of legalism?
There is no trajectory or tragedy so pathetic as that of leaders who fail to consensus and opt for the precipitate.
A word from Mehmet Murat Idan? ‘No matter which path you are on, always do this: Question your path! If you are on the wrong path, change it, no matter on which mile of the road; change it’! What? Your trajector!
