February 18:

Gambia (1965) --- Independence Day



During World War II, the entire Gambian army, 10 soldiers, fought with the Allies of World War II. Though these soldiers fought mostly in Burma, some died closer to home and there is a Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemetery in Fajara (close to Banjul). According to Jammeh, "when Germany was about to defeat Britain, not only were Gambians conscripted and forced to go and fight in Britain, but also..." Banjul contained an airstrip for the U.S. Army Air Forces and a port of call for Allied naval convoys. President of the United States Franklin D. Roosevelt visited by air and stopped overnight in Banjul en route to and from the Casablanca Conference (1943) in Morocco, marking the first visit to the African continent by an American President.

After World War II, the pace of constitutional reform increased. Following general elections in 1962, the United Kingdom granted full internal self-governance in the following year. The Gambia achieved independence on 18 February 1965, as a constitutional monarchy within the Commonwealth of Nations. Shortly thereafter, the national government held a referendum proposing that an elected president should replace the Gambian monarch (Queen Elizabeth II) as the head of state. This referendum failed to receive the two-thirds majority required to amend the constitution, but the results won widespread attention abroad as testimony to the Gambia's observance of secret balloting, honest elections, civil rights, and liberties. On 24 April 1970, Gambia became a republic within the Commonwealth, following a second referendum. Prime Minister Sir Dawda Kairaba Jawara became the Head of State.


Upcoming 3 celebrations:
February 19: Nepal (Democracy Day)
February 23: Brunei | Guyana
February 24: Estonia

Over to Gambia!

My Gambian athlete is Suwaibou Sanneh, a very promising young sprinter who reached the SF in the 100 metres in last year's Olympic Games. Gambia has never won an olympic medal, he could secure their first next time around if his progress continues.

February 19:

Nepal (2011) --- Democracy Day



Before achieving its independence on the latter part of the 18th century, Nepal was diverse and divided into different independents states under different leaders and was then ruled by Bahadur San.

However, the opportunistic Ranas saw this condition of Nepal as an opening to enter the Palace and place the government in their hands. Janga Bahadur Rana even became Prime Minister on 1947. During this administration, a lot of massacres and abusive acts were committed by the Ranas, shamming the whole Palace and the whole of Nepal.

The People of Nepal experienced a life full of nightmares while under the ruling power of the Ranas. The royal family has taken away a lot of opportunities to the people of the nation while the members of their family were enjoying the extravagance and abundance that they had from the highest office. Anomalies such as corruption, discrimination and violent behaviors have ruled the country during this period of Nepali history.

In the efforts of the people to free themselves from this kind of government, a lot of courageous souls have established groups to expel the Rana government and bring back the equality and fair treatment in the whole country. It is in this crucial time that the four martyrs of Nepal were made known which inspired the citizens even more to continue what they were fighting for. The power of the people continued to become stronger and intact. And after 104 years of struggle, Nepal finally triumphed over the Ranas on 1951.

Since then, the Nepalese yearly commemorates the 19th of February as Democracy Day to reminisce all the people’s efforts that brought back good governance in the whole country.
