Precisely three months before his politically motivated arrest, Dr. Amadou Scattred Janneh confided in me his post-Yahya Jammeh’s regime’s ambition. “I would like to teach a class in Human Rights at the Gambia University.” It was a defining moment in our relations; a moment that completely altered my view of our fledging Coalition for Change Gambia (CCG). In him, I met another Gambian of academic stature with whom I shared the same worldviews. Dr. Amadou S. Janneh easily won me over with the modesty of his ambition, just as he was impressed with my persistent drumbeat calling for democracy and the rule of law in The Gambia. Ours was, therefore, a match made in Heaven. Dr. Janneh a former Radio Gambia and The Knoxville Journal, Tennessee, news reporter is no stranger to journalism and the world of politics. In1989, as a doctoral student and University of Tennessee political science professor, he founded the “Anti-apartheid Coalition of Tennessee,” a testament to his commitment to the issues of justice and fairness in politics. Earlier in his life, the native of Gunjur, a town located thirty miles south of the capital city Banjul, saw firsthand the struggles of daily life Gambians in the rural hinterland were faced with. It was a humbling experience that opened his eyes to the social and economic inequalities that surrounded him. The experience helped mould his character.
