The Hyena Documentary is a Participatory Video that documented stories of unheard victims of Human Rights Violations by the former regime of Yaya Jammeh who could not be heard by the Gambia’s established commissions (TRRC, Janneh Commission of Inquiry etc.).

The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) in 2019 published in its “Great Gambia Heist” investigation report that; $975m was plundered during the former administration under Yaya Jammeh. To assess the impact of this heist, Gambia Participates worked with Transparency International to identify victims of grand corruption in The Gambia that are affected by systemic corruption using Participatory Video technique (PV).

The partnership video aimed at amplifying Voices of Victims of grant corruption under the Jammeh administration and provide them an opportunity to be heard. 11 victims from across all sectors participated in the making of this video after undergoing a two weeks of training facilitated by a Participatory Video expert from the UK. Victims were trained on basic filming techniques during these two weeks period and successfully documented their own stories independently.

The video was then launched in October 2019 after receiving approval from victim communities and persons and published in our website, YouTube Channel and Facebook. It was screened in a total of Nine communities in The Gambia, Germany and various media houses in the Gambia.
