The good news is that President Adama Barrow is on his way home sweet home to a rousing welcome and has already requested that some of the ECOWAS forces remain in the Gambia for another six months (I suppose, so that Brigadier-General Jammeh does not try any nonsense from over there in Equatorial Guinea - because much can be accomplished if you've got a lot of loot - although - no crocodile tears - he has wished President Barrow the best of luck and more importantly the Gambia's head of military pledged support to President Barrow even before His Excellency Sheikh Professor Alhaji Dr Yahya Abdul-Aziz Awal Jemus Junkung Jammeh Naasiru Deen Babili Mansa, Ph.D. departed from the scene and into exile as the guest of the long reigning Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea…
I asked Pa Google about Islam in Equtorial Guinea – and the answer leaves you wondering why Sheikh Jammeh didn't exile in a Muslim country - although you don't have to live in a majority Muslim country in order to practice Islam - and then I remembered that one no less than the Shah of Iran is buried at the mosque where I was initiated into the Rifai order in June, 1991, namely the Al-Rifa'i Mosque in Cairo - that despite the Shah's stature, status, wealth and many powerful international friends there were so many countries that did not want to accommodate him as an exile.
