What does the state have to gain in closing radio stations and detaining politically motivated citizens?



The three year mandate of the president has already elapsed. Few people expect anyone to try to force President Barrow to adhere to a mandate which has already elapsed. What the state should want is a peaceful atmosphere where citizens carry out their duty of holding it to account without any fear or ill will. After the recent confrontation life has returned to normal. One would expect that the nation would put the past behind us by opening all radio stations and discharging all detainees without condition.
