Mhhhhhhmmm ... what shall I plant? (composite).

Gambia's exiled former leader Yahya Jammeh has reportedly disclosed plans to take up farming "full time".

Quoting the Jeune Afrique newspaper, a BBC report said that Jammeh was set to go into farming.

An unnamed diplomat in Equatorial Guinea was cited as the source of the story, the report said.

It was not clear what type of farming he was set to venture into.

Jammeh flew out to Equatorial Guinea in January from The Gambia, a tiny west African country he ruled for 22 years, to cede power to President Adama Barrow and end a political crisis.

He had initially refused to step down after a December 1 election in which Barrow was declared the winner, triggering weeks of uncertainly that almost ended in a military intervention involving five other west African nations.
