Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Gambia, Freedom of Speech, Human Rights, Media & Journalism

Gambian President Yahya Jammeh says he sets press freedom limits in the country [1]: But press freedom has limits, Jammeh said, and it is he who sets those limits. “One freedom I will never give you is the freedom, the liberty to write whatever you want that you know is not true. There is press freedom, but there's no freedom to lie.”
