    Gambia names APANEWS editor Demba Jawo Information Minister

    APA- Dakar (Senegal)

    Demba Jawo, a journalist and editor on the English desk of the African Press Agency (APANEWS) in Dakar, has been appointed on Tuesday Gambia’s Minister of Information, Communication and Technology in the new government.

    In disagreement with Yahya Jammeh's regime, Mr. Jawo had left his country to settle for years in Senegal where he worked for APA News.

    Alongside his journalistic work, which he carried out with unfailing professionalism, the freshly-appointed minister was constantly taking part in all the activities of the Gambian community in Senegal and elsewhere, especially fighting for the restoration of democracy in Gambia.
