Triumphant welcome for Macky Sall in Ziguinchor

Senegal's President Macky Sall Monday arrived in Ziguinchor, southern Senegal, for a three-day visit, and was given a triumphant welcome by the locals, PANA learnt from reliable sources.

President Sall was welcome by a huge crowd, who had earlier been mobilised to the launch, on Monday night, of the project on the development of the Casamance

Some 23 billion CFA francs (US$138 million) has been allocated to the project.

Upon his arrival at Ziguinchor governor’s headquarters, the President donated an air-conditioned bus to the main soccer club in the locality, Casa Sports, for which late Senegalese international striker Jules François Bocandé had played for years.

The donation was very much appreciated by the club, which had been having difficulties travelling for its away matches.
