Breaking News:Has Waa Juwara Defected to the APRC! Waa’s resignation from NADD raises doubts!
By Our Chief National Correspondent Landing Badjie

The resignation of Gambia’s leading political figure Lamin Waa Juwara from the opposition NADD is provoking a heated controversy in the tiny West African country. Our Chief National Correspondent Landing Badjie says some section of The Gambian populace believed that Mr.Juwara was on the verge of joining the ruling APRC, a government which viotlated his rights and liberties over the years. It’s alleged that some APRC bigwigs led by Fatou Jahumpa Ceesay had been talking to Waa lately. It’s not yet clear what the said talks were centred on, but what is clear is that Waa has given his back to NADD, a party he earlier promises its supporters that he was ready to die for it.

Meanwhile, some executive members of the National Democratic Action Movement(Ndam) could not hide their disappointment in their party leader for what they called his unilatelateral withdrawal from Nadd.
Mr Lamin Waa is now suspected by his allies for reportedly going it all alone without  seeking  their  consent.
” According to Waa’s press release to announce the withdrawal from Nadd, he stated that the decision was arrived at after consultation between the executives Which  executive  member  can Waa  said  he  consulted  on  this  matter.  For  reasons  of  prudence,  we,as  of now, prefer to remain silent until we see what line of action to take,” a Ndam executive who wished to be anonymous told our Banjul man in a mobile phone interview Wednesday.

Meanwhile, rumours in town has it that the former Niamina Dankunku lion was contemplating joinining  forces  with  his  long-time  sworn-enemy- Jammeh. It was even reported in the local papers that Mr Juwara has already put finishing touches to his plans to jump ship but he was quick to brush aside the allegations.

Observers here are keen following Waa’s activities these days. His association with the APRC was first discovered during the National Assembly elections, in which he campaigned for the APRC candidate Essa Saidykhan. Many believed that due o frustration and lack of confidence into the opposition, Waa is compelled to make a last minute U turn.

When contacted, Waa’ cannot be reached but efforts are underway to get his reation to the allegations. Mr.Juwara is expected in the United States pretty soon.
