Buy Country Review

Between France and Senegal there's a history. There's a language that we both speak. There's a culture that we share and to which both of our peoples have contributed. But beyond our history, beyond our language, beyond the links that have united us for so long, what unites us today is the future.

Profile: Senegal


On 28 August, after severe flooding had caused widespread damage in many regions of the country, with Dakar particularly badly affected, President Sall proposed abolishing the senate and using the money used to support it (around US$15 million annually) on providing relief and building flood defences. On 19 September, in a joint session of parliament the senators were voted out of office and the senate abolished. The remaining congress then abolished the post of vice president, which had remained vacant since its inception in 2009 by then President Wade, in a move suspected to enable the president to groom his son, Karim, for the presidency. As it happens, Karim Wade was formally charged with corruption in connection with his vast fortune on 18 April  2013. Lucky escape for Senegal.
