Deji writes, “Gambia is a small country but this story is pretty crazy. The president, who is seeking his 6th term, is using Trump rhetoric surrounding the ‘rigging of elections.’ People are voting by using marbles. Meanwhile, opposition activists and journalists have been arrested — and the government STILL shut off the internet. It seems the president has lost his marbles.”
