Gambians votes for president without Jammeh

Gambians are casting their ballots to elect their country’s next president for the first time since long term ruler Yahya Jammeh was forced into exile in Equatorial Guinea in 2016.

Polls were opened on Saturday at 8am local time and long ques were seen in many parts of the country. Mohammed Saidy Khan, the Movement Co-ordinator for Africa Rising, a Pan African human right organisation based in Gambia told African Voices Platform the election has been “calm and peaceful.”
