Fresh Update: Joy As Refugees Return To A Gambia Without Jammeh


Jan 25, 2017


Refugees have been streaming back into Gambia since the departure on Saturday of strongman Yahya Jammeh, who finally bowed to international pressure to accept his election defeat.

In the capital, Banjul, ferries are running around-the-clock to bring back the tens of thousands of refugees who had fled to neighbouring Senegal, fearing unrest.

Relieved at Jammeh’s departure, they are now waiting for the return of their new president, Adama Barrow.

According to one of the returning Refugees he claimed now they are free as they can move about and say whatever they want.

Yet another said it wasnt his choice to go and be a refugee in another man's land but with what he was faced with he couldn't stand it than to move.
