The new Gambian president Adama Barrow has the broom by the forces met. He was dismissed according to officials chief Ousman Badjie and ten other high-ranking officers.

Also the head of the prison administration was out of office.

The army and the prison system were accepted as pillars of the regime of Yahya Jammeh. He lost at the end of last year the elections, but refused to make room for Barrow. Only after neighbours threatened him with violence to remove, chose the langzittende leader eggs for his money.

According to a legerwoordvoerder are, since the arrival of Barrow, about twenty army officers re-adopted. It includes military personnel who previously had to leave because of their alleged involvement in a failed coup d’état against Jammeh in 2014.
