The Gambia on Thursday outlawed public smoking and warned smokers to desist from violating the new law that was enacted last year.

The new law seeks to keep the nation a free smoking zone to reduce tobacco related diseases, the government said. 

Police officers in collaboration with officials of the Ministry of Health are mandated to enforce the new law starting today [November 12].
