Gambia Action Party on Tuesday expelled Lamin Bojang as its presidential candidate as well as from the membership of the party amid the nude video scandal.

The retired army general was recently on the lips of Gambians after a nude video emerged last Friday showing General Bojang in a sexual act fondling his nipples and genital organ.

His dismissal from the party comes a day, Musa Yali Batchilly, secretary general of the party said they would decide on the fate of Mr. Bajong.

It also comes hours after retired general Bojang told journalists he is ‘stronger now than ever before’ as he partially admitted to being in the video.

A statement from the party said: “We want to make it crystal clear that your actions are unethical and are not in line with the consultation of the party, as well as our modus operadi. 

“Thus, we unanimously agreed to expel you from the party and you’re no longer our PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE OR FLAG BEARER effective on the 15th of July, 2020.

“Whatever grievances you had with any member of the party, the Executive Committee is capable to settle and proffer lasting peace and solution. You were not supposed to share with the media without the permission of the party.”
