    Jammeh’s 22 years iron fist rule got the public wondering about how much his net worth is, only to find out he is richer than the entire country.

    Now, the question is: why is Yahya Jammeh so rich and how did he acquire his wealth?

    This is so deceitful, how can a president be richer than a whole nation. According to a report, Jammeh is the richest man in the Gambia and virtually all businesses are owned by him.
