The Leader of the United Democratic Party Ousainou Darboe left Banjul in the early hours of Thursday for Dakar Senegal, Freedom Newspaper can reveal. Darboe, who traveled by road left his home at 5:AM on Thursday. Sources close to the former Vice President said Darboe is a guest of President Macky Sall. He has been scheduled to meet with President Sall, sources claimed.
Darboe’s Dakar trip comes in the wake of strained relationship between him and President Adama Barrow. It also coincided with the ongoing preparations for the Monday protest march organized by the three years jotna group.
It is not clear if President Sall is trying to broker peace between Darboe and President Barrow. What is clear is that the UDP leader is currently out of the jurisdiction of The Gambia. His trip was unannounced.
An official of the UDP leadership was contacted for comment, but he was yet to respond to our message.
