Part of the local press claimed that the government had reconsidered its decision, adding that work on the Dakar maritime domain, started by individuals, had resumed.

The Prime Minister of Senegal, Ousmane Sonko took a firm decision by publishing a decree this Tuesday, May 14, ordering the Directorate of Surveillance and Control of Land Occupation (DSCOS) to suspend all construction and other works on the former dependencies of the Public Maritime Domain (DPM) in the Dakar region, for a period of two months from May 13, 2024.

This measure comes following the establishment of a special commission responsible for the control and verification of titles and occupations on the old and new dependencies of the DPM of Dakar.

Placed under the aegis of the Prime Minister, this commission will have the mission of clarifying the legality and conformity of the titles issued and the occupations carried out in the areas concerned.

Its members include representatives of key institutions of the Republic such as the National Assembly and the Economic, Social and Environmental Council (Cese), as well as the government, and several other figures involved in the land issue.

Land, as a Source of numerous social conflicts in the country, remains a major concern for the different regimes that have ruled the country. For many years, a large part of the Dakar population has complained about the monopolization of the coast by individuals, which has led to the privatization of land areas and cut off access to the sea for many.
