President Macky Sall just said words that did not please Senegalese citizen and Africans. On the occasion of the launch of his book “Republican Conviction”, the Senegalese Head of State opened a breach on colonization.

“It’s our French friends. We have a special relationship with France, It is true that they have colonized us, and there is a peaceful decolonization. But, as Professor Iba Der told me, they have always respected the Senegalese because the Senegalese riflemen’s regiment, when they were in the barracks, they were entitled to desserts while other Africans had not “.

These words, spoken with humor, had a boomerang effect with the Senegalese, who manifested themselves on social networks.
