Ousainou Darboe, leader of the opposition United Democratic Party (UDP), has called on supporters to stop insulting political opponents. 

The leader of Gambia’s main opposition party, wrote Monday on Twitter:

“I want to implore on all UDP supporters to desist from insults and derogatory terms to people who share a different political view. 

“The executive hereby inform the general public that those speaking out are not sanctioned to do so. We condemn such acts of in its entirety.”

The remarks came as the political feuds between the party stalwarts and opponents, particularly supporters of President Adama Barrow, intensified on social media. 

Last week a prominent member of the party Ebrima Dibba, who is also chairman of the Brikamain Area Council, was expelled from the UDP party. 

Mr Dibba was accused of disloyalty after being accused of supporting President Adama Barrow, a former member of the UDP party now turned political foe. 

However the expulsion of Mr Dibba has temporarily been rescinded following a review but the case is yet to be resolved.
