The motorcade of the two mediating West African leaders to The Gambia trying to finally convince Yahya Jammeh to hand over power, has left the Presidential Palace to Coco Ocean Hotel.

President of Guinea Alpha Conde and Mauritanian President Muhamad Abdul Ould Aziz are currently in the country negotiating with Mr Jammeh to peacefully hand over power to President Adama Barrow who was sworn-in on Thursday in Senegal.

It was not immediately clear if Jammeh was aboard one of the two dozen vehicles seen departing the compound heading to the Hotel.

It is not clear as to why they stop the talks and headed to Coco Ocean Hotel where they are having lunch, but earlier, it was reported that Mr Jammeh was still not cooperating.
