“Gambia has announced its withdrawal from the International Criminal Court, accusing it of targeting Africans. Tuesday’s announcement follows similar decisions this month by South Africa and Burundi to abandon the Hague-based court.Information Minister Sheriff Bojang said in an announcement on state television that the court had ignored crimes committed by the West. He said, “not a single Western war criminal has been indicted”, and that the withdrawal is, “warranted by the fact that the ICC, despite being called International Criminal Court, is in fact an International Caucasian Court for the persecution and humiliation of people of colour, especially Africans”. The ICC was set up in 2002 to try the world’s worst crimes but has been accused by African leaders of bias and racism. This latest decision will also come as a personal blow to the court’s chief prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, a former Gambian justice minister” (CCTV Africa, 2016)
“Three days ago (02.02.2016), it emerged that Apollo Sansa Kabumbuli, the Kamuswaga of Kooki Chiefdom was arrested by Special Forces Command officers for attempting to crash into the convoy of the Vice President, Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi. Here are the pictures of that incident at Kyajubira village near Bukunda trading center along Masaka-Mutukula Highway via the Observer newspaper. The Vice President, also Member of Parliament for Bukoto County Central constituency since 1996, was returning from his campaign rallies in Kyanamukaka sub-county, Masaka. Eye witnesses say trouble started after Kamuswaga, who was driving himself in his official vehicle, refused to give way to Ssekandi’s convoy. Ssekandi’s body guards swung into action and threatened to shoot the Kamuswaga, prompting him to draw out his gun and point it at the guards, leading to a scuffle and ensuing arrest” (NBS TV, 2016)
