The Gambia Police Force (GPF) are presently firing tear gas cannisters to disperse a crowd of protesters here at Kairaba Avenue.
Kairaba Avenue is the Gambia’s main thoroughfare which runs in a relatively straight line from Westfield Junction to the Atlantic Road. It is a major business area and home to the American Embassy.
Kairaba Avenue is also the area where the opposition leader Ousainou Darboe is resident. Earlier this afternoon a crowd of protesters gathered at his residence in solidarity with their leader who has rejected Saturday’s poll results.
