QUESTION OF THE DAY
Is it a crime to put on or sell a T-Shirt with the following slogan ‘#GambiaHasDecided’?
No one in his right mind would accuse anybody of committing a crime for wearing a T-Shirt with such a slogan. The slogan could mean anything to anybody. It could also be a means of earning ones daily survival.
The use of slogans is a manifestation of freedom of expression. ‘Gambia Has Decided’ does not carry any derogatory or inflammatory connotation. Hence, anybody arrested for wearing or selling such a T-Shirt should be released for the sake of sanity and justice.
