The boy was “buried on the afternoon (Monday) in the cemetery in Kanifing,” a suburb of the capital Banjul, watched by “several hundred sympathisers”. Barrow was recently in Senegal to attend an African summit in Bamako.
His spokesperson on Sunday insisted he would be sworn in as planned on Thursday. Until then he plans to stay in Senegal.

Jammeh, who first seized power in a 1994 coup, has insisted that his rule was ordained by Allah.
