Gambia’s Jammeh Shuffles Cabinet for Third Time Since April

Gambian President Yahya Jammeh has made changes to his Cabinet for the third time since April, according to a statement read on state-owned Gambia Radio and Television Services.

Mamadou Tangara, the minister of higher education, research, science and technology, and Foreign Affairs Minister Mambury Njie will switch jobs, the Banjul-based president’s office said in the statement yesterday.

Jammeh won a fourth term in office in November, extending his 17-year rule of the West African nation.
