President Macky Sall lost more than a thousand followers on Twitter.
Senegalese citizens have unsubscribed from his page in a few days. This action comes at a time when the country is plunged into a situation of socio-political disorder.
For the past four days, the Senegalese have been out on the streets. They protest against the arrest of Pastef leader Ousmane Sonko who was accused of rape by Adji Sarr, a masseuse. More than 60 demonstrators were arrested among them, activists or members of civil society. More than 4 deaths were reported and many wounded even within the security forces.
Deputy Ousmane Sonko, who has always called for political conspiracy in this case, has seen his parliamentary immunity lifted in a hasty manner, a move that, according to him, took place with numerous irregularities in an ad hoc committee composed of a majority of members belonging to the ruling party, that of President Macky Sall.
Faced with a population that has witnessed this unprecedented scenario, Senegalese Internet users have decided to unsubscribe from their president’s page. President Macky Sall lost more than a thousand followers in less than three hours on Twitter. Evidence that Senegalese turned their backs on him.
