Political uncertainty in the Gambia, due to former President Yahya Jammeh’s refusal to accept the results of the 1 December presidential election, drove thousands of Gambians to flee the country into Senegal and Guinea-Bissau. Although some people have already begun to return, an estimated 50,000 Gambians remained in Senegal and Guinea-Bissau as of 24 January.
