Breaking News: Gambia Ex President Jammeh Leaves Banjul For Indefinite Exile


Yahya  Jammeh, former president of Gambia has left Banjul, the capital  to begin an indefinite term in exile. He left just after 10.00pm for Conakry, along with President Alpha Conde. To rub his large ego, he was  given a full ceremonial honour  by the military brass band and a red carpet treatment. According to a journalist who witnessed the departure, some of his aides wept openly on the tarmac, while “others outside are still celebrating”.


His departure was confirmed by President Adama Barrow, now waiting in Dakar, Senegal to return home and start his government of ‘inclusiveness’ and transparency as he promised on Saturday. “I would like to inform you that the 2nd President of the Republic of The Gambia, Yahya Jammeh has left Gambia. #Gambia“, Barrow tweeted at about 10pm Nigerian time.

Hordes of journalists and a battery of photographers had camped all day at the Banjul International Airport waiting for his departure, after an agreement was reached Friday night with President Alpha Conde of Guinea and President Abdul Aziz of Mauritania, for him to vacate power voluntarily.

It is not clear where Jammeh will end up eventually. He flew out with President Alpha Conde in an aircraft owned by Mauritania.

After landing in Conakry, Jammeh  may finally be heading to Malabo, capital of Equatorial Guinea, ruled  by another African pseudo democrat,Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo who has been in power since 1979.
