Kaw Jaiteh, a 22-year-old man from Gambia, has done what he could to escape into Germany, he found work in a bakery, got his driver’s license and saved money for a car.

An interview with Samba P. Jallow, economist, Gambia.
Gambia which is one of Africa’s smallest countries compared to many of its West Africa neighbors has suffered instability since independence. Former President Yahya Jammeh who ruled the country with an iron fist after seizing power in a coup in 1994 had no intentions to leave. Notwithstanding, his 22-year rule came to an end in 2016, when he was defeated by the main opposition candidate, Adama Barrow, who is now the president. Mr. Jammeh only left office after the threat of armed intervention by neighboring countries.
However, the political and economic problem has not really seen any light since the new government took over, therefore one will be left with the question of whether the promised made by the new government can be achieved.
In this exclusive interview, Mr. Samba P Jallow a Gambian, an economist and a social media influencer on political issues, gave an insight of the past and present administration and the situation at hand in Gambia.
