Morocco Offers Gambian Leader Jammeh A Golden Retirement

Morocco has offered The Gambia's President Yahya Jammeh asylum in return for accepting election defeat and stepping down, a local news website reported Tuesday.

The small west African country has been plunged into political turmoil since Jammeh disputed president-elect Adama Barrow's December election victory and refused to cede power.

Deputy Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita and the North African kingdom's foreign intelligence chief Yassine Mansouri have been conducting "a delicate mission in Banjul", the Gambian capital, for several days, Le Desk website reported.

Morocco wants Jammeh "to accept his election defeat in return for a golden retirement in Morocco", the website said.

The initiative comes after an international outcry over Jammeh's refusal to step down.

  3. Jammeh why not step down now
