Fall in prices, Transport, France and Senegal, scrutinized on the front page

The dailies received on Wednesday at the APS address various subjects relating to the drop in prices of basic foodstuffs, transport and relations between France and Senegal.

Sud Quotidien is interested in the effectiveness of the drop in the prices of essential foodstuffs and underlines that the Minister of Industry and Commerce “will meet shortly” with the Senegalese.

”(…) the countdown is on if we trust the Minister of Industry and Commerce. For Serigne Guèye Diop, in the coming days or at most the coming weeks, the drop in food prices will be effective as announced by the President of the Republic,” writes Sud.

In the daily Le Soleil, Mr. Diop assures that ”the drop in food prices will soon be effective”. The Minister of Industry and Commerce spoke on Tuesday on the sidelines of the celebration of Metrology Day.

Noting that Senegal imports more than a million tons of rice worth 300 billion CFA francs each year, economic operator Moustapha Tall, maintains in WalfQuotidien that “we must have food sovereignty at all costs ”.

A week after the entry into service of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), Le Soleil reports that 200,000 passengers have already been transported.

”Put into service on Wednesday May 15, the BRT seems to be adopted by the people of Dakar. In one week, and with only around forty buses in rotation, more than 200,000 travelers have already taken it,” reports the newspaper.

The daily EnQuête deciphers the relations between Dakar and Paris with the coming to power of sovereignist leaders in Senegal.

”A decisive turning point!”, exclaims the newspaper which writes: ”By bringing the opponent Mélenchon to the pinnacle while vehemently criticizing the President of the Republic Macron, Ousmane Sonko, Prime Minister and leader of the Pastef party, marks a major turning point in relations between France and Senegal. This act comes after the announcement of the visit to the countries of the Association of Sahel States (AES), which brings together Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger.

The daily Bës Bi highlights World Tea Day celebrated on May 21.

”This drink from China is today the most consumed in the world after water. It comes from the transformation of the leaves of a tree called the tea plant and which is mainly found in East Asia (China, India, Japan, etc.). Senegal is today the 34th country in the world in terms of tea imports. Attaya is the name given to the preparation of this beverage,” writes the newspaper.

The publication adds: ”In Senegal, the +attaya+ moment represents an opportunity to socialize. It is an activity that can bring together families or friends and spark discussions and debates. In general, it is the responsibility of the youngest to prepare tea for the elders as a sign of respect. The tea is boiled, mixed with sugar, mint, etc. and served three times: A strong and bitter lèweul, a second balanced between bitter and sweet and a third very sweet.
