His Excellency President Professor (Witch)Dr Al-Haji Yahya Jammeh

Not content with curing AIDS on Thursdays using herbs and bananas, Gambia's Embarrassment-in-Chief has now set himself another lofty goal: to rid his country of the witches and sorcerers responsible for the mouldy state of the economy. As the East African reports:
To the accompaniment of drums, and directed by men in red tunics bedecked with mirrors and cowrie shells, dozens, perhaps hundreds, of Gambians were taken from their villages and driven by bus to secret locations. There they were forced to drink a foul-smelling concoction that made them hallucinate, gave them severe stomach pains, induced some to try digging a hole in a tiled floor, made others try climbing up a wall and in some cases killed them, according to the villagers themselves and Amnesty International.
