excerpt -   Gambia stunned the Commonwealth, which mainly groups former British colonies, by withdrawing from the 54-nation bloc in October, branding it "an extension of colonialism".

Jammeh said Britain had "no moral platform" to talk about human rights.

"What brought the British in the first place to Gambia ... was trade in ivory because Gambia had a lot of elephants," he said.

"They ended up wiping out the elephants and then turned around and started selling Africans. The British instituted slavery. The only thing they left us with is unfortunately the English language."
