Question Time: The Gambia crisis, 24 January 2017

Former President of The Gambia Yahya Jammeh has eventually succumbed to pressure from the Economic Community of West African States to accept the outcome of last year’s elections, and hand over power to the democratically elected Adama Barrow. Jammeh caused a stir last year when he reneged on respecting the election results, after having initially promised to do so. West African leaders did not agree to grant Jammeh any immunity during negotiations to resolve the impasse, and this resulted in him fleeing into exile over the weekend. Due to safety concerns Barrow was sworn in as the new President of The Gambia at the Gambian Embassy in Dakar, Senegal last week. Meanwhile, South Africa has commended the efforts made by the international community spearheaded by ECOWAS, and the African Union with the United Nations’ support to find a peaceful resolution to the Gambian political crisis.
