The small African nation—read its CIA profile HERE—told the most senior United Nations official in the country she had 48 hours to leave after criticizing President Yahya Jammeh's alleged cure.
In January, President Jammeh announced he can eliminate HIV and heal people with AIDS in a matter of days. Footage of the president applying his banana and herb treatment has been widely broadcast on state-run television, but doctors and journalists in The Gambia fear openly criticizing his claims.
Dadzai Gwardzimba, UN Resident Coordinator in the capital Banjul, spoke out last week and said, "To date, no cure for AIDS has been announced internationally. Once a person has been infected with HIV, he or she remains infected for life." She warned that this "treatment" could encourage people to engage in risky behavior, believing that they were cured of the disease. The UNDP says it backs her comments over President Jammeh's claims.
