During the election, internet access and international phone calls were blocked by authorities. In an unprecedented result, opposition candidate Adama Barrow defeated long-term incumbent Jammeh

His Presidency has been plagued with reports of human rights violation and repressive regime

Jammeh takes nothing from 94 year old President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe who has been in power since the country gained it’s independence from the British in 1980. Mugabe is NOT the only one

Ugandan President of 30 years Yoweri Museveni can’t believe Jammeh lost

Museveni is NOT the only one in desbelief

The question now is whether Adama Barrow’s President be the bigening of new things for Gambians and see the return of those in political exile or whether he will go after Yahya Jammeh
