The President Adama Barrow said his visit to Kanilai on Thursday is part of reconciliation.
“This is the former village of the former president (Jammeh). If I come to this village for any purpose, is important to visit his family. Out of respect, that’s why I come to see the family because as Gambians we are all the same. He is the former President and obviously he deserves respect from evey Gambian, especially as president of the Republic of The Gambia. What I told the family is One day the position will finish. It’s either you retire, or you are sacked from the position or you die. Even me, I will one day become former president. But I think every Gambian deserves respect, and out of that that’s why I said let me come and see the family. I have seen the family and they received me very well and obviously we are talking about reconciliation. This is part of reconciliation, to try to reconcile everybody,” President Barrow told reporters.
President Adama Barrow earlier on Thursday visited the former president Jammeh’s home in Kanilai in the West Coast Region
