23 Years of the 22nd July Revolution




The Gambia, which is the smallest nation on the mainland continent of Africa, runs on either side of the river “The Gambia” and is surrounded almost entirely by Senegal.

According to Wikipedia, the AFPRC, led by Yahya Jammeh (pictured ), has moved toward making the Gambia more democratic, and several rounds of apparently fair elections have been held.
