Gambian president fires veep, appoints woman as replacement

Written by on March 15, 2019

President of The Gambia Adama Barrow on Friday (March 15) fired his vice president Ousainou Darboe – with immediate effect, appointing a replacement.

A statement from the Office of the President said Darboe “has been relieved of his cabinet appointment as Vice President of the Republic of The Gambia with immediate effect.”

It is not immediately know the underlying reasons for the latest move even though the statement puts it down to a presidential prerogative.

Barrow, in power since 2017, appointed his third vice president in the person of Isatou Touray, who till today held the health portfolio. She is expected to serve as veep whiles overseeing the health ministry.

The statement also revealed that two other political allies of Darboe also lost their positions. Agriculture Minister Lamin Dibba and Minister to Trade, Regional Integration, Industry, and Employment, Amadou Sanneh were also fired by President.

Darboe was a key member of the opposition coalition that beat long-serving Yahya Jammeh in December 2016 polls. At the time, the coalition picked Barrow as candidate because Darboe was imprisoned.

He was released days after Jammeh was declared loser of the polls. He was later appointed Foreign Affairs Minister, a post he held till June 2018 when Barrow appointed his Vice President.

He replaced a former minister Fatoumatou Jallow Tambajang in the role. Isatou will be the second woman veep in three years.

    First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your mind before writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are lost simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any ideas or tips? Kudos!
