Ghanaian cartoonist represents exiled Jammeh with ‘barrow’ art

The former Gambian president, Yahya Jammeh maybe out of the country but not out of the creative and somewhat subjective even naughty ideas of some African artists.

The pick of the lot was by a prominent Ghanaian cartoonist,Bright Ackwerh, who put Jammeh in a wheelbarrow being pushed by Adama Barrow. The bespectacled Jammeh has an indifferent look whiles a smiling Barrow seems to enjoy pushing Jammeh out.


Ackwerh, who is no stranger to lampooning politicians back in Ghana also has a Jammeh piece that shows the former leader sweating with his wooden staff, Quran and rosary in hand and he titled it ‘I will not be intimidated.’‘


The likes of Obama, Buhari, Melania and Donald Trump have all not escaped his artistic works.

He describes himself as ‘‘Le provocateur,’‘ who uses his art ‘‘to generate conversations around cultural capital and identity politics with pop culture.’‘
