The Zulu king, Misuzulu Zulu, is calling on South Africans to remain calm and restrained after the violence that has killed at least 72 people, according to the official report. In a televised message, this Wednesday, the sovereign of the Zulu, the majority tribe in South Africa, is outraged against these riots that «tarnish» the image of this country of Southern Africa

Misuzulu Zulu, king of the Zulu, majority tribe in South Africa, came out of his silence on Wednesday, July 14, 2021, after the violence that caused at least 72 deaths. In a televised message, the sovereign calls his people to order. “I call upon you, the people of my father, the Zouloue Nation, to renounce the destruction of our country, South Africa. I call for calm and peace to be restored. The looting has shamed us,” he said.

After the arrest of Jacob Zuma for contempt of court, thousands of South Africans took to the streets to protest against the decision sentencing the former President to 15 months in prison. According to the official report, 72 people lost their lives during the demonstrations and jostling in South Africa.On this occasion, tyres were burned, shops and shops looted by the demonstrators.

For the sovereign Misuzulu, “this chaos destroys the economy of our country and the poor and vulnerable will be the most affected.We risk going into a famine because the trucks are no longer delivering food,” he warns. In this communication relayed by the South African media, King Misuzulu adds that “our own families will suffer. My father’s people are committing suicide … Our nation is respected around the world. Stop the violence. Let politics not tarnish our nation, we are much better than that. We are worthy people,” he added.

As a reminder, South Africa is facing a cycle of protests following the arrest of Jacob Zuma.In the face of the anger of supporters of the former President, the current regime called for the protesters to calm down, before deploying some 2,500 soldiers to the streets of the rainbow nation.

SENEGAL – Harassment, food tampering, communication ban: the Diomaye Coalition President alert on the conditions of detention of his candidate

Bassirou Diomay Faye

The Diomaye Coalition President warns about the conditions of detention of candidate Bassirou Diomaye Faye. The members of the said coalition inform that his visiting days have been changed and he can only receive visits on Tuesdays and Wednesdays within the Court. He is also prohibited from telephone communications. The Diomaye Président coalition denounces this relentlessness against its candidate and holds the regime responsible for any attack on the physical or moral integrity of their candidate.

“Following the official launch of the Diomaye President Coalition and the massive adhesions of opposition leaders, it was expected that the government in power would reinstate the candidate Bassirou Diomaye Faye in his rights, particularly in the context of a presidential election of which he is undoubtedly the favourite,” reads a statement.

However, the Coalition announces that the Prison Administration, under the responsibility of the Minister of Justice, has decided to unilaterally and without justification tighten the conditions of detention of candidate Bassirou Diomaye FAYE by:

“A unilateral modification of his visiting days now, the candidate Bassirou Diomaye Faye can only receive visits on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and this within the Court itself. A ban on telephone communications under the pretext that the favorite candidate in the presidential election whose campaign begins in two days has conversations whose purpose is political. A continuous harassment of the room of the candidate Bassirou Diomaye Faye is now searched at every turn.”

Moreover, she notes a «lack of security measures despite her status as a candidate in the presidential election of February 25, 2024 and multiple alerts on probable alterations of the food served to her. Candidate Bassirou Diomaye Faye no longer has breakfast.”
The Diomaye President coalition denounces this relentlessness against its candidate. “We strongly denounce this umpteenth violation of the principle of equality between candidates in the presidential election of February 25, 2024. We call for the immediate release of Bassirou Diomaye Faye to actively participate in the election campaign.”

In any case, she stresses, «the State of Senegal has the responsibility to ensure its protection if it unjustly decides to maintain it in the bonds of detention».

In short, the Diomaye Coalition President indicates that «Macky Sall, Aissata Tall Sall and Amadou Ba will be held responsible for any attack on the physical or moral integrity of the candidate Bassirou Diomaye Faye».

SENEGAL – Thione Niang “I have no program, I have a vision”

Social entrepreneur Thione Niang is a candidate in the February 2024 election. In this exclusive interview, he reveals his vision, his projects in particular, “Give One project”, “JeufZone” which includes an agricultural component, training but also women’s empowerment. 

It was an opportunity for the social entrepreneur to look back on his beginnings, on the process of returning to his country of origin, Senegal. He addressed the political question: his involvement in the political ring while giving his opinion on the Senegalese political landscape. 

African politics is another aspect of this interview. The urgency of the industrialization of the continent, the urgency of helping African youth so that they have the same opportunities for development as other young people in the world, is close to his heart. 

On the question of the African school, Thione Niang proposes a redesign of it, starting with a paradigm shift and especially the content of the teachings. According to him, we must return to our fundamentals, namely our own models of identity representations, notably Cheikh Anta Diop or Nkrumah. 

Thione Niang, also told us about vision, his vision and not a program, to give each Senegalese what he deserves both in terms of education, health, but also on the development of infrastructure, which, according to him, necessarily passes first and foremost through food self-sufficiency, hence his return to the land for an assertive agricultural progress.

He ended up sending a strong message to all Senegalese.
