Gambia: Break up of coalition 

Gambian coalition parties which united last year to deliver the first new president in 22 years are unlikely to run together for legislative elections next month. The coalition figure voiced frustration that the infighting was likely to embolden the party of former president Yahya Jammeh, who ruled the country with an iron fist for two decades until leaving for exile in January. Barrow's cabinet is made up of the heads of the seven parties and single independent candidate who formed the coalition, and he had barely finished putting his government together before the disagreements began. 

To help us navigate these stormy waters, we are joined on the line by:

* Jeggan- Grey Johnson: Communications and Advocacy officer with the Africa Governance

* Ephraim Charlie Khumalo: Senior Producer Portuguese Service Channel Africa

* Ebrima Sall: The Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa
