Gambian journalist Sheriff Bojang Junior returned home after 10 years. " [Former president] Jammeh divided this country. So many Gambians went into exile. So many Gambians were killed or disapeared. We need reconciliation." 

Jammeh's opponents were detained without trial, tortured or disappeared. Newly elected president Adama Barrow pledged to

establish a ‘Truth and reconciliation commission’ and stay in the International Criminal Court.
