The deranged and sick Gambian dictator, Yahya Jammeh, has missed a mega rally organized by his party at a time when electioneering has reached fever pitch. 

Confidence levels in the rank and file of his party has gone down to historically low levels and even his closest confidants have begun asking in hushed tones how to rescue the seemingly hopeless situation, 

Rambo Jatta , who is a youth mobilizer for the increasingly unpopular party and permanent secretary at the office of the president said on his Facebook page  the president failed to show up due to the death of Cuban leader, Fidel Castro. 

However, a close watcher privy to the disarray in the Jammeh camp says there is more to the conspicuous absence than has been announced. 

He revealed: ” Jammeh has been battling with seizures and blackouts from a strange sickeness. He is drained and the coalition has ignited his worst fears of electoral defeat”.
