A demonstration organized by the "Aar Li Nu Bokk" civil society group is scheduled to take place in Dakar on Friday, June 14. The group has called on supporters to rally against President Macky Sall's alleged involvement in a petrol sector corruption scandal and to call for greater transparency in the government's efforts to exploit the country's natural resources. The demonstration is slated to begin at 15:00 (local time) at Place de la Nation.
A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are anticipated in the area. Similar protests are possible in the coming weeks.
Individuals in Dakar are advised to monitor the situation, avoid any public demonstrations as a precaution, and anticipate localized traffic disruptions and a heightened security presence near demonstration sites.
