Following intense diplomatic negotiations lasting several painful weeks that saw several thousand Gambians fled to neighbouring countries, the Gambian despot, Yaya Jammeh, abandoned by his army and Cabinet, has now, finally agreed to  step down and go into exile.

Throughout the negotiations, the poor army lieutenant who came to power with less than $5 in his bank account, had insisted that he and his closest loyalists be granted general, unconditional amnesty and access to his wealth estimated at over a $billion.

As we went to press, the visiting Heads of state are still at State House but as most things Yaya Jammeh, I, personally, would not take him seriously until his plane takes off from Yundum.

For now though, this is the latest The Echo can share and until we get further information, we take it as it is because throughout his 22 years in power Jammeh has proven to be the most erratic character  ever born in The Gambia.
