Former Gambian dictator Yahya Jammeh, has hired his former Justice Minister Mama Fatima Singhateh, to serve as trustee to his assets in the Gambia. The dictator has given Ms. Singhateh, the power of attorney to represent him while he is away from the country.
A source writing to us said: “Hello Pa, I just want to inform you that Mama Singateh, wrote to the AG chambers to inform them that she is now the trustee overseeing the properties of Yaya Jammeh in the Gambia. She also questioned them about the whereabouts of Jammeh’s cows which were at the state house. She is still lecturing at the university and having secret meetings with Madam VP wannabe.”
Ms. Singhateh is in the good books of the new government. She occasionally hangs out with Fatoumatta Jallow Tambajang. She used to be one of the biggest enablers of dictator Jammeh. She has sent so many Gambians to jail while serving as Justice Minister. She even conspired with the NIA to file trump up charges against Fatu Camara, a former State House Press Director and GRTS presenter. Ms. Camara had to flee the country. She was accused of supplying information to the Freedom Newspaper, an allegation she vehemently denied
The AG Chambers couldn’t be reached for their own side of the story. Ms. Singhateh could also not be reached for comment.
Jammeh’s businesses are still operational in the Gambia. None of his businesses have been shut down by the new government.
Mr. Jammeh is living in exile in Equatorial Guinea.
