A report finding of the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission has said ex-president Yahya Jammeh ‘raped’ former beauty queen Fatou Jallow alias Toufa.

“Yahya Jammeh is responsible for the rape of Fatou Jallow (Toufa),” the report finding said.

The 25-year-old former beauty queen appeared before the commission to explain how former president Yahya Jammeh groomed and raped her after she won the July 22nd Beauty Pageant. 

Ms Jallow, who waived her anonymity to encourage other women to speak out about sexual abuses, gave a harrowing account of the night Jammeh sexually abused her. 

She said that Jammeh raped her at the State House during a religious ceremony known locally as the Gamo. 

Jammeh was also held responsible by the report findings for the rape of another witness identified as DB18.

“Yahya Jammeh is responsible for sexual abuse of protected witness DB18,” the report said.
