Messages received when running Python scripts running on Mac

When running Python scripts on a Mac, there are messages that pop up that are quite disconcerting. It seems to be Mac Gatekeeper complaining about a jffi*.dylib file being from an unknown developer.

You have to click Bin or Cancel twice. This almost put me off running the script, which I understood to be safe.

Are such messages avoidable and if so, is it possible to fix it?

    It is a Mac thing, it is not avoidable and the developer has been trying to find a solution.
