Leader Pastef Ousmane SONKO said last Thursday during a face-to-face meeting with the press that the Senegalese soldiers sent to Mali – under a UN mandate (Minusma) – were in fact on a mission at the request of France.
An exit that did not leave indifferent the founder of Think-than, Afrikajom Center, who reacted on Twitter. According to Aliun Tine, Usman Sonko must learn to play the role of the future supreme commander of the armies more professionally, which cannot be improvised.
“Senegalese soldiers have been in Mali since the beginning of the Malian crisis. ATT was here in Dakar. He must (Editor’s note: Usman Sonko) learn to play the role of the future supreme commander of the armies with great professionalism. This cannot be improvised,” the former RADDHO president tweeted.
