KEEMTAAN GI – IT SMELLS BAD!
It is as if some had sniffed the scent of a harmful drug. In Paris, it is Idrissa Gana Guèye who refuses to play with her flocked rainbow colored jersey dedicated to the LGBT community. And since yesterday, it’s been pulling in all directions with a vast solidarity of compatriots for the Senegalese international who thumbs his nose at the gay community In the field… of Senegalese politics, we accuse each other of all the tampering. In the Yewwi Askan Wi coalition, an evil spirit would have falsified the list of this opposition conglomerate. The person concerned was quickly cleared of all suspicion before the representative of this coalition came to point the finger at him. It’s gonna smell bad. As for the Mexican army in power, it is accused of falsification with the complicity of the administration. On May 4, he is accused of having had a surplus of sponsorship, do not laugh. And as if by chance, the next day, this same power would have published in disaster a decree justifying the surplus. And it unpacks… In Mbacké, one would think that the boss of Lonase shot a joint. He threatens with death and intimidates the most famous opponent of Galsen if the latter returns to the area of which he thinks he holds the land title! Above all, it is strictly forbidden for the opponent to mention his name in Guédiawaye if he does not want to return home feet first. For less than that, since these are death threats, people rot in prison. That’s what it gives if you want to give pledges of loyalty. Another general manager of a public box also gave himself all the liberalities. Through a contribution in a site in the form of advertising and closed to the comments of these dirty Internet users, he split a long contribution to treat the same opponent of all names with attacks below the belt and that the moral reproaches. Alas, with the great insecurity and the words of politicians flying low, everything is to be expected by the end of July.

ECOLOGICAL DISASTER IN GANDIOL (SAINT-LOUIS) MACKY MISSED THE MARK OF A VISIT
The images ended up going around the world and are chilling. Thousands of shoals of dead fish (sardines or yaboy) washed up on the place of Gandiol (Saint-Louis). A spooky sight that stretches along a bank for almost a kilometer. In the memory of a swimmer or a fisherman, such an ecological disaster had never occurred in Senegal. Chemical or toxic attack on the high seas? Ecological disaster ? Still, the toll is millions of fish killed. A carnage that further weakens the economy of artisanal fishing and the food security of Senegalese. Under other skies, the President of the Republic would immediately go to the scene of the crime, in Gandiol in this case, if only to fly over them in a helicopter and assess the situation firsthand. But unfortunately, our very dear President of the Republic is technically and politically very badly surrounded in terms of advice. Alas, he missed the mark!
DISMANTLING OF THE GANG OF AGGRESSORS OF THE SCOOTERIST A NICE BLOW FROM THE GRAND-YOFF COMMISSIONER’S OFFICE
During the last upheaval within the police, the daily “Le Temoin” said that Police General Seydou Bocar Yague was counting on Commissioner Dianko Mballo to eradicate the organized crime that is rampant in Grand-Yoff. Well, we weren’t wrong! Indeed, barely installed in his new functions, the ex-commissioner of the district of Dieuppeul, Dianko Mballo, has just succeeded in a great operation in the fight against urban delinquency in Grand-Yoff. A nice net which was the subject of a press release from Commissioner Mouhamed Guèye, head of the Public Relations Office of the Police (Brp). Who says that “since the night of Sunday May 15, 2022 a video has been circulating on social networks and through which we see a gang of attackers armed with coupe-coupes, pursuing an individual on board a motorcycle, even in a house (Catchment Zone district in Grand-Yoff) to seize his machine after having sprayed it with asphyxiating gas. “Following this event which, without a doubt, can generate a feeling of insecurity among the populations, the National Police informs that, in the moments which followed these facts, the patrols which were in progress in the sector and the “Exploitation of the information allowed the arrest of one of the criminals” explains the Brp while specifying that one of the attackers, formally identified by the victim, admitted the facts of which he is accused. Killing this operation with one stone, Commissioner Mballo’s elements went to dismantle another gang made up of eight (08) members aged between 19 and 22 years. These thugs are all domiciled in Grand-Yoff, precisely in the catchment area. They were arrested in the act of assault and several bladed weapons seized. The elements of the Research Brigade of the Grand-Yoff police station do not intend to stop there because other inter-municipal associations of dangerous criminals (Parcelles-Assainies, Castors, Grand-Yoff, Patte-d’oie, Hann etc. .) were reported to them. Investigations, hideouts and other spinning mills are continuing with a view to their arrest.
THE FAULT OF MINISTER MAMADOU TALL 55 TEACHERS ADMITTED TO ENA BANNED FROM COURSES
What is the Minister of National Education Mamadou Talla playing at? Because he did not sign the letter of internship position for 55 teachers and secondary school teachers admitted by professional competition to the National School of Administration, they will not be able to start classes today like their other counterparts admitted to this prestigious school. The management of the ENA refused any registration of the concerned until it received this administrative document from the services of the Ministry of Education. If all the other ministries, which had agents admitted under the professional competition, hastened to send the said documents, Minister Mamadou Tall is absent. The management of the ENA waited in vain for the response letter from Minister Talla who had been questioned for the first time on February 3 to send these letters of internship position. The management of the ENA has even taken the liberty of chasing Minister Mamadou Talla, who has continued to play dead for who knows what reasons. The 55 teachers and secondary school teachers, who worked hard for years and years to open the doors of this great school, tried to contact the director of Training and Communication of the Ministry of Education Moustapha Diagne who would have remained dubious. Finally, he would have promised together with his minister to settle the situation this Tuesday at the end of the morning. In any case, among the 55 teachers and secondary school teachers concerned, the concern is total because they fear a dirty trick from Minister Mamadou Talla. Alert trade unionists will enter the dance today to demand the unblocking of the situation. We will come back to it.

FRANCE ÉLISABETH BORNE APPOINTED PRIME MINISTER
The already former Minister of Labor, Elisabeth Borne, was appointed by Emmanuel Macron to succeed Jean Castex at Matignon. This is the second time in the Fifth Republic and the first time since 1991 that a woman has been appointed to this post. His name had been circulating for several weeks. It is indeed Elisabeth Borne, 61, who succeeds Jean Castex as Prime Minister, three weeks after the re-election of Emmanuel Macron for a second term at the head of France. Until then Minister of Labour, Employment and Integration, Elisabeth Borne had occupied, during the first five-year term, the posts of Minister in charge of Transport, then of the Ecological and Solidarity Transition. She is the second woman to hold this position, the only woman to have done so being Edith Cresson, in 1991, appointed by François Mitterrand. “Dear Elisabeth Borne, Madam Prime Minister”, wrote Emmanuel Macron on Twitter, setting out the long roadmap for this start of the five-year term: “Ecology, health, education, full employment, democratic renaissance, Europe and security”.
