The sun is at its zenith in a noisy Dakar where motorists should no longer be offended by traffic jams at rush hour. But this Thursday, July 28, the slowness of the traffic in the capital exasperates our taxi as we try to make our way to the home of Alioune Ndoye, in the upscale neighborhood of Fann Residence.
The Minister of Fisheries and the Maritime Economy gave us an appointment there at 1 p.m. and, when we were dropped off at the agreed place, the driver launched into a mixture of Wolof et approximate French: “ Alioune Ndoye lost the election. Dakar, the city of Dakar ». In other words: Dakar is for Yewwi Askan Wi (YAW), the main opposition coalition.
