- Parliament, Departments of Justice & Interior
The erstwhile Jarra parliamentarian and majority leader of the National Assembly, Baba K. Jobe has died in hospital. Mr Jobe was taken to the hospital from the notorious Mile 2 Central prison, where he was serving a 9 year jail term following his 2004 conviction of 'economic crimes'.
Mr. Jobe's death further raises suspicion that the Gambian president periodicallly eliminates key witnesses to the regime's crimes and clandestine operations. And for Baba Jobe, it must be noted, was trained in Libya as a mercenary, and he was the man who facilitated Jammeh-Gaddafi relationship that ushered in a feared vigilante group called the Green Boys and Green Girls of the Gambia.
Muammar Gaddafi was killed on October 20, and three days later, October 23, 2011, Mr. Jobe was hospitalised. He died today, October 29 of unknown illness at the country's main hospital adjacent to the presidential palace.
Immediately carry out an Independent Autopsy on Baba Jobe

INQUIRY INTO THE DEATH OF BABA K. JOBE
We would like to bring to your attention as a matter of urgency to launch an independent inquiry into the death of former Majority Leader of the National Assembly, Hon. Baba K. Jobe.
Hon. Jobe died in government custody, Honourable Speaker of Parliament and Honourable Minister of Justice. The world is watching closely events hapenning in our country, and we as Gambians are carefully taking note of mysterious deaths in our prisons which are never independently and thoroughly investigated.
If Hon. Jobe is hurridly laid to rest without an independent autopsy, the Gambia Government will be held responsible for his death - and that includes the Parliament and the Departments of Interior and Justice.
