The purging of Jammeh appointees have started in earnest, the Freedom Newspaper can reveal. All regional Governors hired by the former Gambian dictator Yahya Jammeh, have been dismissed with immediate effect. President Adama Barrow, has started the in house cleansing. The Governors have had their services terminated. No reason was given for their sacking.

The following Governors have been fired: Lamin Queen  Jammeh NBR, Aminata Sifai Hydara West Coast, Salifu Hydara LRR, Omar Ceesay URR, Salifu Puye, LRR, and Omar  Khan CRR. The successors of the fired Governors have not been announced yet.

In another development, the eleven Ambassadors, who recently called on dictator Jammeh to step down during the political impasse and were subsequently fired by the dictator, have been reinstated by the new government. Sources reaching us said that the eleven Ambassadors have been reinstated.

The Coalition government could not be reached for comment at the time of filing this story.
