Gambia: Dismissed Jammeh Ambassador Appointed President Barrow’s Security Aide

Gambian president Adama Barrow, has appointed Masaneh Kinteh, as his security aide. Mr. Kinteh will from now on be in charge of Barrow’s security matters.

Mr. Kinteh used by Gambia’s Chief of Defense Staff under Jammeh’s rule. He was retired from the army deployed to the Foreign Service. He was on posting in Cuba. He was recently fired from his job after he asked Jammeh to step down from power.

Mr. Kinteh, used to be one of the finest officers of the armed forces. He is a UK trained officer. He is a holder Masters’ degree.

Having the likes of Kinteh, in the force will help shape the dented image of the onetime politicized army.
