One of Africa’s longest serving President Yahya Jammeh of Gambia is to step down after 22 years. The 51 year old who ruled the West African country following a coup in 1994 said he will NOT contest the election results during his consession speech saying God told him his time was up.
❝Allah is telling me my time is up and I hand over graciously with gratitude toward the Gambian people and gratitude toward you❞

Ugandan President of 30 years Yoweri Museveni can’t believe Jammeh lost the elections
Gambians went to the polls on 1 December 2016.
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
