Kaddy Samateh

Even babies are not spared Dictator Jammeh’s punishment!

News just reached Kairo News that the mother of a month’s old baby has been re-arrested by the police. Khaddy Fatty and baby Aisha Fatty spent a week in police detention in May after they were arrested together with other opposition protesters. Kaddy’s husband has been detained since April 14th.

Kaddy Samateh who appears before Kanifing Magistrate’s Court today has had her bail revoked and taken to police headquarters in Banjul. Also the government whose leader claims to have empowered and championed women’s advancement revoked  the bail of Lily Bojang. The Bright woman’s health had seriously dwindled during an earlier detention.

However, the court maintains the bail of three other women. It wasn’t clear why Fatou Sarr, Amie Touray, and Isatou Saidy had their bail maintained while their co-accused were not.

Kaddy and Lily are currently held at Banjul police cell. Their lawyers and supporters have since flooded Banjul police.

The sixth accused is reported to be out of Gambian jurisdiction. Sukai was targeted purposely for being the face of the Gambia’s Calabash (Kalama or Mbatu) Revolution. 

In another development, United Democratic Party leader Lawyer Ousainou Darboe and 18 others will return to the dock tomoDarboe and co to be in court Tuesday the 12 of July.
