The Gambia removes Jammeh's portrait on new series

According to an article on Gambiana.com the Central Bank of the Gambia has announced it will issue a new series of banknotes without the portrait of former president Jammeh.

"Former Gambian president Yahya Jammeh changed the pictures on dalasi paper notes and replaced them with his portraits after his 2011 landslide victory.

But this alteration on all the dalasi paper notes ranging from the 5 dalasi was widely viewed among Gambians as a political motive of Jammeh towards rigid dictatorship.

And in 2018, the central Bank of the Gambia announced that it will remove the portraits of the exile former Gambian president Jammeh and replace it with pictures that are representative of the Gambia’s historical sites and its rich flora and fauna."

The new notes will enter circulation in June 2019.
