The political bureau of the former ruling Alliance for Patriotic Reorientation and Construction (APRC) in Janjangbureh, capital of the Central River Region is now put up for rent after the downfall of the party’s leadership of The Gambia.

The head of the party and former President Yahya Jammeh lost the last December polls to current President Adama Barrow. He now lives in exile in Equatorial Guinea. He has ever been sponsoring the activities of the party financially using state resources.

Matta Hydara, the landlord of the Janjangbureh structure confirmed to The Fatu Network that the APRC officially handed over the place to her after the December elections.


“They use to pay her D2, 500 monthly. The Janjangbureh Area Council used to pay the rent to me. ” she said.

She also confirmed that the party did not owe her any arrears saying the space is available for rent.

She revealed that it was Malang Saiba Camara, the former governor of the region who negotiated the place for APRC to use as a political bureau.
