The long awaited truth, reconciliation and reparations commission has finally begun. The 11-member commission will investigate human rights abuses committed between July 1994 and January 2017 during the reign of former president Yahya Jammeh. Gambian-born prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda, said the commission will help the country write a new chapter and that in order to move forward "it must reckon with its past." Pray for the 11 members of this commission to carefully and respectfully investigate people’s personal tragedies. Pray that everything that needs to be exposed will be uncovered (The Bible, James 5:16).
