Yahya Abdul-Aziz Jemus Junkung Jammeh is a politician and former military officer, firstly as chairman of the Armed Forces Provisional Ruling Council and then as President of Gambia from 1996 to 2017.

Jammeh, born on 25th May 1965, Kanilai, is a Muslim of the Jola ethnic group. He attended Gambia High School in Banjul from 1978 to 1983 and served in the Gambian National Gendarmerie from 1984 to 1989.

Lamin Ceesay became the first person in Gambia to publicly declare that he was HIV positive, consequently, former president Jammeh declared that he had discovered his own miracle cure for the virus using a mixture of herbal medicine and spiritual healing techniques.

Jammeh was accused of many crimes when he left out of power last year with the strangest being, that of forcing people with HIV to undergo a fake treatment with a mixture of herbs he had invented by himself. An unkown number of them died.
