Title: The Gambia's Yahya Jammeh 'to quit and leave'

The Gambian strongman Yahya Jammeh has agreed to step down, officials involved
in negotiations say.
And he's stepped down and is gone.
But he's taken 11M and a whole shitload of government Mercedes with him.
I guess everyone expected that though. In fact, maybe that's what he's
been doing these past weeks: playing for time, long enough to arrange
shipment, do some last minute banking, pack up his undershorts, and book
a room at the Ramada Beach Inn.
Good riddance, Jammeh - you were a colossal putz.
The CSM would like to infer some meaning from the whole thing. They
might be onto something.

I always like it when a few words convey a lot – in this case,
#LessonsfromGambia. From where? The oft-overlooked country – and its
neighbors – just sent a loud message to African leaders who hang on
and to citizens eager for change. – Amelia Newcomb, International News
