Demonstration in Senegal against “bad governance” in the anti-covid fund case

1 Min Read

The main opposition coalition in Senegal “Yewwi Askan Wi” led by Ousmane Sonko and Khalifa Sall organised a demonstration on the eve of President Macky Sall’s speech at the presentation of the government’s annual report.

Hundreds of Senegalese protested against what they called “bad governance” and the irregularities in the management of the anti-Covid fund revealed in a report by the Court of Auditors, demanding legal proceedings and the resignation of those involved and the reimbursement of misappropriated funds.

In response to these claims, the government justified that the failures detected concern only 1% of the amount of the anti-covid fund estimated at more than one billion dollars over the period 2020-2021, promising to follow the recommendations of the Court of Auditors in this direction in order to rectify the situation.
