They are Fatoumatta Jawara, Alagie Jawara, Billay Tunkara, Abdoulie Ceesay, Saikouba Jarju, Saikou Marong, Baba Galleh Jallow and Omar Darboe.
A source who does not want to be named told Kerr Fatou that the 8 lawmakers were expelled from the party because of their manifested loyalty to Barrow.
Barrow was a member of the UDP who fell out with the party after becoming the President. Kerr Fatou has learned that the party is due to issue a statement on the matter today.
