Gambian Toufah Jallow tells of surviving rape by dictator


“In June 2015, Yahya Jammeh, then the president of The Gambia, raped me. He was never charged. He was never convicted. It was a lie that he thought would be able to get away with, and he tried to forget me. I believed I would not speak of it again, and that I would stay invisible. We were both wrong, because I am here, shining like the sunrise of the melanated coast,” she writes. “I am Toufah Jallow. This is my story.”
