Gambia’s Adama Barrow names Fatoumata Tambajang as VP

The Gambia’s president, Adama Barrow, has named senior politician Fatoumata Tambajang as deputy leader.

The announcement of Tambajang’s appointment will be followed by the unveiling of the rest of Barrow’s cabinet later on Tuesday, according to presidential spokesperson Halifa Sallah.

She made headlines last month when she told The Guardian newspaper that Jammeh, who came to power in a 1994 coup, would be prosecuted for alleged crimes committed by his regime.

Following her comments, Jammeh, who had initially conceded defeat, announced he no longer recognised the result, triggering a protracted political crisis which ended when he flew into exile late on Saturday.

Barrow, who fled to Senegal earlier this month for security reasons, was sworn in as president on January 19 at The Gambia’s embassy in Dakar.
