According to the Government Information Office (BIG), ”this courtesy visit takes on a symbolic character all the more marked as it comes a few days after the opening, on Saturday, of the 83th edition of Daaka”, chis annual spiritual retreat which is held on a site located 10 km from the town of Madina Gounass, in the department of Vélingara (south).
