Famous comedian and political novice, Kitabu Fatty has dropped out of the presidential race and endorsed former TRRC's former lead counsel, Essa Faal on September 14.

Many are now asking whether the Jarrangka comedian will be Essa's vice president if he wins the December 4 presidential election.

In a Facebook post, Kitabu said Essa "is the best person to lead the country at this time of great social and political change".

He wrote: "His wealth of experience, indepth knowledge of the law, his personal accomplishments and calm temperament, makes him unique among the competing candidates to steer the affairs of the country."

Kitabu is the leader of the Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) - an unregistered political party.

His decision to shelve his 2021 presidential ambition and support Essa Mbye Faal was not suprising. The Jarangka comedian and his team are struggling fianncially.

Kitabu is currenly crisscrossing the Kanifing Municipality and West Coast Region to cmapaign for his new leader.
