About Yahya Jammeh:
Yahya Abdul-Aziz Jemus Junkung Jammeh is the president of the Gambia. As a young army officer, he took power in a 1994 military coup.
What brought the British to the Gambia in the first place - which was bigger than it is now - was trade in ivory because the Gambia had a lot of elephants. They wiped out all the elephants and ended up selling Africans.Yahya Jammeh
