Former Gambian President Yahya Jammeh left Saturday night Banjul, for an exile in Guinea, local medias reported Saturday night.
Gambia's capital was awaiting the arrival of the country's new leader and an era of democracy, almost a full day after the authoritarian ruler of 22 years flew into exile with an extraordinary set of assurances from the global community.
From the huge pressures, the former president shifted his ground on past Friday and agreed to temporarily leave, as to the text, the country for Guinea, while Barrow said he would return to Gambia when the necessary conditions were created.
No date has been set for the return of Gambian President Adama Barrow, who beat Jammeh in last month's election and who was sworn into office Thursday in neighboring Senegal, where he was for his safety.
Jammeh announced Saturday that he would step down from power after last-chance talks with leaders from West African countries.
The global relations minister, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, said Namibia supports the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas), which have called on Jammeh to leave.

The worldwide bodies also made a commitment to work with the new government to prevent the seizure of assets and properties lawfully acquired by Mr. Jammeh, his family, cabinet members, government officials and supporters of his political party.
The joint declaration describes Jammeh's departure as temporary, "in order to assist a peaceful and orderly transition and transfer of power and the establishment of a new government". "They were neutralized", he said in a statement.
"We also echo President Barrow's call for Gambians to unite and work together as brothers and sisters for the future of The Gambia".
Meanwhile, President Adama Barrow has said he would return to The Gambia on Monday.
Human rights lawyer Reed Brody told The Associated Press that the deal doesn't give Jammeh amnesty. "Depending where Jammeh ends up, though, the real obstacles to holding him accountable will be political".
According to the U.N. refugee agency UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), about 45,000 Gambians, mainly children, had fled to Senegal since January 1.
