The eight-year-old son of the Gambia’s President-elect Adama Barrow has died after he was bitten by a dog in Manjai Kunda.

Habibu Barrow’s untimely death comes few days before his father’s inauguration on January 19th. After attending the Franco-Africa Summit in Mali, Adama Barrow was flown to Senegal. The ECOWAS leaders want the President-elect to remain in Senegal until his planned inauguration.

Habibu died on his way to the hospital on Sunday, family sources said.

The young boy’s remains have been interred, with many people attending the burial at Manjai Kunda.

Adama Barrow, the opposition coalition candidate who defeated the incumbent President Yahya Jammeh, is married to two wives. He is blessed with five children.

Gambians and friends of the Gambia have been extending their heartfelt condolences and sympathy to the family of a man who is willing to remove the yoke of tyranny dangling on the necks of Gambians. They pray that young Habibu’s soul rest in Eternal Peace.

Ends
