The Gambia’s new President Adama Barrow said he will return to his country from neighbouring Senegal when regional block Ecowas thinks it is safe for him to return. He told the BBC’s Clarisse Fortune he would establish a truth and reconciliation commission to investigate alleged human rights violations under longtime leader Yahya Jammeh.
Mr Jammeh says he will step down, after refusing to accept losing December’s elections.

  2. Mr accidental president of The Gambia, you’re really disappointing the masses of our beloved country The Gambia. ADAMA BARROW you really don’t deserve the president seat in The Gambia. It’s just the test from Allah on the people of The Gambia. Anyway my advice for the Gambians if there to be an election, let’s The Gambians try to elect someone who would take Our nation forward from backward. Really The Gambia is still going backwards, because we’re having an illiterate civil president in The Gambia. Please Mr BARROW think carefully about the things that you’re doing .
