Many Gambians however, feel that Jammeh should have remained at home to face trial for alleged human rights abuses.
The former President of the Gambia, Yahya Jammeh, has arrived in Equatorial Guinea, starting a new life in exile, a day after relinquishing power. Jammah was persuaded to hand over power to Adama Barrow, who defeated him in an election last month, by the regional group, ECOWAS. Jammeh went to Equatorial Guinea via Guinea...
