Welcome home, Mr. President!
A new era for The Gambia, West Africa
President Adama Barrow returns, Gambia
‘A new era for The Gambia – President Adama Barrow arrives home from a brief exile in Senegal. Tens of thousands lined the road from the airport – it took 4 hours to make a journey that normally would take only a quarter of an hour… it was worth every minute.’ Jason Florio
On Dec 1st, 2016 the Gambian people voted out their autocratic President Yahya Jammeh, after 22 years in power, and elected Adama Barrow as their new president. Jammeh conceded defeat, but a week later announced that he was annulling the election results and would not step down. A grassroots movement #GambiaHasDecided emerged in reaction.
