Senegal: Diving into the Unknown

03 Feb 2024  |  fr.allafrica.com
Senegal faces a political crisis as President Macky Sall indefinitely postpones the presidential election scheduled for February 25, 2024, citing ambiguous reasons. This decision has intensified public distrust and is seen as a strategic move to neutralize political opponents, particularly Bassirou Diomaye Faye, whose candidacy poses a significant threat to Sall's political survival. The article highlights the historical precedence of holding elections during crises in the United States and argues that postponing elections undermines democratic principles and stability. The postponement is viewed as a dangerous precedent that could erode democratic institutions and legitimacy.

Goodbye Friend!

28 Sep 2015  |  SenePlus
René Lake pays tribute to his long-time friend, philosopher Moctar Diack, who was recently buried in Dakar. Lake reflects on Diack's intellectual prowess, his ability to embrace doubt, and his evolution from a leftist protester in the 1970s to a more detached observer. Diack's doctoral thesis at the Sorbonne on 19th-century French medical materialism is highlighted, along with his rationalist approach to transcending African specificity. Despite his significant contributions, Diack, like many of his generation, remains largely unrecognized in Senegalese history. Lake fondly recalls the many evenings spent with Diack in Paris and Dakar, where Diack's balcony served as a hub for leftist intellectuals. Lake expresses gratitude to Diack for his friendship and hopes that Senegal will one day fully acknowledge his contributions.
