Gambia President-elect Adama Barrow’s son dies after dog bite

Gambia President-elect, Adama Barrow

A son of Gambia’s President-elect, Adama Barrow, has died after being bitten by a dog, the BBC has reported.

Eight-year-old Habibou Barrow was reported to have died on the way to the hospital on Sunday in Manjai near the Gambian capital Banjul.

Mr. Barrow missed his son’s funeral as he was advised to remain in neighbouring Senegal for his own safety.

Mr. Barrow won the presidential election last year but outgoing President Yahya Jammeh has refused to accept the result after initially conceding defeat and congratulating Mr. Barrow.

President Muhammadu Buhari is leading other West African leaders to convince Mr. Jammeh to leave office as scheduled on January 19.

    This man must be a Moslem. This kind of misfortune has never been known to befall a president elect before. Nobody can tell us that his enemy Jammeh incited the dog to bite his son. Mallam Barrow is bedeviled somewhere, if not one thing it is another. Allah.
