Muhammad Mustapha Jammeh was born on the 21st January in the village of Farato which is on the urban periphery of the main city Banjul, The Gambia. A few years ago, Muhammad was also concerned about the direction of the education system in his country, the Gambia. So, he was engaged in a series of educational activities to contribute his quota in improving education and building a better society in his local community.
Jammeh was born in Kanilai , and is a Muslim of the Jola ethnic group. He was then commissioned as an officer of the Gambia National Army , commanding the Military Police from to In July , he led a bloodless coup d'etat that overthrew the government of Dawda Jawara and installed himself as chairman of AFPRC, a military junta, and ruled by decree until his election as president in Jammeh was re-elected as president in , and , but lost to Adama Barrow in His time in office saw the authoritarian oppression of anti-government journalists, LGBT people and opposition parties.

Sulayman Badjie, the former head of the armed forces, which included the presidential guard, was so close to Jammeh that he fled the country on the same plane that finally took the ousted president into exile in Equatorial Guinea in
