Four more cabinet ministers in Gambian President Yahya Jammeh’s government have defected, as citizens stream out of the country in fear of unrest.

With less than two days left of his mandate, Jammeh has caused a political crisis by refusing to step aside and allow president-elect Adama Barrow to take power following his December 1 election victory.

President Yahya Jammeh on Tuesday declared a 90 days state of emergency, citing foreign interference in a presidential election he lost to opponent Adama Barrow last month.

Jammeh is quoted as saying the declaration was necessary “due to the unprecedented and extraordinary amount of foreign inference in the December 1 presidential elections and also in the internal affairs of The Gambia”.
