In Senegal, the video showing a Proximity Security Officer (PSA) who rapes women with disabilities outrages people. Indeed, it is the ladies Awa Gaye and Rougui Thiam, both in wheelchairs, being beaten under the helpless gaze of their comrades disabled.
The attacker, Adama Ndour, was quickly arrested by the elements of the central police station in Dakar, a few hours after his repugnant act.
People with disabilities claim more consideration
After being indignant at what happened to the two women, the Senegalese Federation of Disabled People’s Associations (Fsaph) held a sit-in to denounce the burrs they are subject to.
In red armbands, people with reduced mobility went to the place of the nation to show their anger.
“We met here today to denounce this barbarous and irresponsible act of an Asp on people with disabilities, especially women,” said Khadim Tall, the spokesman for the day.
He recalls that “the disabled, who are supposed to be protected against aggression, are today abused and abused by defense and security forces”.
Entrepreneurship, an alternative
For Khadim, the state must find “an alternative proposal” to the disabled, besides begging, especially that people with reduced mobility constitute 15% of the population. It proposes to set up a high authority to accompany them to undertake.
Khadim castigates the fact that “the Delegation to Rapid Entrepreneurship has not selected, since its creation, a single disabled person”.
Finally, he asks the police authorities to take all the necessary measures to punish the local security officer and thus set an example against the daily smudges experienced by people living with a disability.
