Senegalese public opinion is currently shaken by an alleged corruption affair involving law enforcement. According to local media, two police officers on duty at Kebemer would have given in to bribes offered by Aïssatou Fayethe daughter of Mansour Faye, an influential personality in the country. The facts allegedly took place during a routine search of his vehicle, which led to the discovery of more than 25 million FCFA in his possession.

According to consistent sources, the two police officers intercepted the young entrepreneur’s vehicle and, after an inspection, found a considerable sum of cash. To undoubtedly avoid possible sanctions, the young woman would have offered a large sum of money to the agents. The police then allegedly accepted the offer and released her, in exchange for the bribe. Rumors indicate that the total sum found in the vehicle could be well over 25 million FCFA.

The affair spread in well-connected circles, causing a wave of indignation among the population. Local authorities responded by suspending the two police officers involved. They are currently the subject of a internal investigation and risk removal from the national police for their act of corruption.

This case once again highlights the challenges that Senegal must address the fight against corruption, particularly within its law enforcement agencies. It raises questions about the integrity and responsibility of the agents responsible for enforcing the law and protect citizens.

The reaction of the Senegalese authorities will be closely scrutinized by the population. The fight against corruption is a crucial issue for Senegal. Bassirou Diomaye Faye, the new Senegalese president has promised to wage an ongoing fight against corruption. For the moment, Aïssatou Faye has not been the subject of any legal proceedings.
