EYEAFRICA TV: Banjul, The Gambia: Witness Ensa Keita told the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC) on Thursday that Sanna Manjang; one of the alleged most notorious killers of former President Yahya Jammeh had butchered Kajali Jammeh [an MFDC rebel from Casamance] and fed his remains to the crocodiles in Kanilai.
The 56-year-old man was explaining events leading to his arrest and torture and the execution of captives in Kanilai.
He told the commissioners that Kajali, also call Lecoc was arrested by Sanna Manjang when he went to Kanilai to sell cannabis to buy food.
“Sanna Manjang told Kajali that the day I arrested you, you were resistant to the extent of turning blows at me. Today you are under my control. Whatever pleases me is whit i will do to you. I will kill you, take your head inside and take your meat and give it to the crocodiles,” he claimed.
Mr Keita also testified that when Sanna threatened to kill Kajali, he [Kajali] told him that he was not afraid to die, saying that made Sanna very angry and he insulted his mother.
“He just turned the sword and swung it and Kajali’s head when on the side and the body when on the other side,” he added. He added that he was terrified, saying he never saw such a terrible thing in his life.
The 56-year-old farmer stated that Sana stamped on the man’s head and told one Sulayman to bring a bag for him. “Sanna held the man’s head and put his two fingers on his nostrils and said everything will be clear now. He put the man’s head in the bag and went.”
He said Sanna told Badjie that the crocodiles will be fed with Kajali’s meat. “He [Sanna] brought a cutlass and chopped off his legs. He came to his wrist and chopped it off and went to the chest and tore it in the middle and put it inside a bag and he and Sulayman held the bag and headed to where the crocodiles are and said let fucking give it to the crocodiles to have dinner.”
