President of Guinea Alpha Conde and Mauritanian President Muhamad Ould Abdel 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.

There are reports that the convoy of the visiting Presidents has left the State House after a whole day long talks with former President Yahya Jammeh. Nothing was clear as to what has been agreed so far but the leaders are currently at the Coco Ocean Hotel.

What is clear is that Mr Jammeh’s mother Aja Asombi Bojang and former Vice President Isatou Njie-Saidy are attending the talks, all geared towards convincing Mr Jameh to step aside.
