Yahya Jammeh and Adama Barrow have been having a power struggle since the country went to the polls in December 2016.
Yahya Jammeh was shockingly defeated in the elections and conceded to winner of the December 1 2016 polls, Adama Barrow, but later rescinded his decision and has challenged the outcome of the election in court.
Jammeh's refusal to step down and Barrow's determination to succeed him as President on Thursday January 19 has left Gambia on tenterhooks with over 26,000 people fleeing to neighbouring Senegal.
Hanna Tetteh came under the barrage of attacks after she tweeted to suggest that the local press has so far not done much in covering the crisis in The Gambia from the ground.
It appears Ms. Tetteh may be on the bad books of many who have been waiting for her to step on their sore toes.
They questioned her rational for making such utterance and challenged her to direct her thoughts to media organisations sympathetic to her party, NDC.

Hanna later tweeted her surprise at the response to her simple question.
Notorious for her intolerance of people who have no respect for her, it seems a lot of those who gave harsh comments will be getting the "block."
