GAMBIA’s former President, Yahya Jammeh, has left the country in the wake of elections that ousted him after 22 years in power.
Mr Jammeh was defeated in December’s election by Adama Barrow but he went on to challenge the results.
But two days after Mr Barrow was sworn in, Mr Jammeh left on a plane reportedly bound for Guinea.
Mr Barrow told the BBC that he would be returning to his homeland “sooner than later”.
In an interview with the BBC on Saturday, he said he wanted to create a truth and reconciliation committee to investigate allegations of human rights abuses during Mr Jammeh’s time in office.
