Macky Sall ‘like a 90-year-old autocrat’ – former PM

Posted by


A former Senegalese prime minister has accused President Macky Sall of “behaving like a 90-year-old African autocrat, which we wont accept”.

An emergency meeting is under way in Nigeria, as West African leaders seek a solution to the political crisis in Senegal.

Friday’s Ecowas summit comes a week after President Macky Sall announced that the upcoming presidential election would be postponed.

On Monday, riot police fired teargas to break up protestors trying to gather outside Senegal’s national assembly. Opposition candidates say the change violates the constitution and are enlisting unions, religious leaders and civil society to campaign against the delay.
