The Gambia revokes diplomatic passports of Yahya Jammeh, family

The Gambia’s government has revoked diplomatic passports of Yahya Jammeh and his family members.

Reports indicate that 207 people have had their diplomatic passports revoked with immediate effect, including Jammeh’s wife, children and other relatives.

This latest development comes almost a week after reports about the presence of Gambia’s former first lady Zainab Jammeh in Dakar, Senegal.

This prompted many in Gambia to call on the government of Adama Barrow to revoke diplomatic passports that were issued by the former regime.

Jammeh and his family fled to exile in Equatorial Guinea early this year after the election of president Adama Barrow.
