United Democratic Party (UDP) has expelled eight National Assembly Members
(NAMs) who were accused of shifting allegiance to President Adama Barrow at the
expense of UDP.
The dispelled lawmakers include: Fatoumatta Jawara, Alagie Jawara, Billay Tunkara, Abdoulie Ceesay, Saikouba Jarju, Saikou Marong, Baba Galleh Jallow and Omar Darboe.
A source who preferred to remain anonymous told Kerr Fatou that the eight lawmakers were expelled from the party because of their unabashed loyalty to Barrow.
Barrow was a member of the UDP who fell out with the party after becoming president. According to Kerr Fatou, the party would issue a statement on the matter today.
