Cartoon: The Gambia- Dawn of a new era

Last week, Yahya Jammeh boarded a private jet leaving The Gambia after 22 years at the helm of the small West African country. Jammeh’s departure came after protracted negotiations and a swift military intervention led by the regional body, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). His departure has been widely applauded and hailed as a monumental step, which could bode well for democracy and renewal in The Gambia. President Adama Barrow is expected in the country today, and there’s hope that President Barrow’s arrival will usher in a new beginning in a country which has had only two leaders since its independence attained in 1965.
