Open Mike : Presented by Doudou Diouf (Monday, 4th December 2017)

00:0000:00

Open Mike is a no-holds-barred talk show where you, the listener sets the agenda. Call the show and talk about anything and everything. Callers are not screened. Want to talk about politics, economics, history, social issues affecting the Seereer people of Senegal, Gambia or Mauritania? Whatever it is, call in and make yourself heard. You can also call in to request a shoutout or dedicate a song to family and friends, or to yourself. Why not? You deserve it.

Open Mike broadcast live from Monday to Friday (see Seereer Radio's programme schedule for details). Seating in for Mamadou Fall who usually presents the show on Mondays, Doudou Diouf is joined by Tamsier Joof, Demba Sene and Mamadou Fall to discuss the recent arrest of Adama Mbaye and Ndeye Sonko - two Senegalese nationals arrested in Senegal for their involvement in human trafficking and the slave trade in Libya and other Arab countries. The panel asks: What is it about the African psyche that will allow this heresy to happen?

With ECOWAS Heads of State accepting Morocco's membership in principle to the West African Bloc, the panel also discussed the hypocrisy of ECOWAS in accepting a North African Arabized nation, yet rejecting Haiti's application whose people we share historical, cultural, racial and religious heritage with. The panel asks: Why has our West Africans leaders allowed this to happen? What is the motivation for allowing an Arab League country who we have no racial or cultural relation with yet rejecting Haity who we have close ties with? Is France behind this? What is Senegal's role in this? What role did the Senegalese Muslim Brotherhoods play in this? Are we (Africans) morally weak to allow this heresy to happen? Should the Bloc be dismantled altogether and start a fresh - which serves the interest of Black Africans and Blacks from the Diaspora?  If a fellow Black nation like Haiti cannot join, yet ECOWAS in its wisdom decided to accept a non-Black nation like Morocco, should the Bloc be dismantled altogether? Join this controversial discussion.

Our special tribute to Professor Issa Laye Thiaw : 1943 - 10th September 2017 (broadcast on 11th September 2017)

00:0000:00

Professor_Issa_Laye_Thiaw_in_his_house-copyright-of-_The_Seereer_Resource_Centre.jpg

It is with great regret that the Seereer Resource Centre (SRC) and Seereer Radio find themselves having to announce the passing of our colleague and old friend Professor Issa Laye Thiaw. Professor Issa Laye Thiaw, also known as Mbañik Caw (his Seereer name, Thiaw is spelled Caw in Seereer) was a brilliant historian and author, and a very proud Seereer and African. A true guardian of Seereer tradition, religion, culture and ethics. He was a gifted and wise man who was always generous with his knowledge and time. The Seereer Community, the Senegambian community, and Africa have lost a great man. 

Following the passing of our colleague and uncle - Professor Issa Laye Thiaw on Sunday, 10th September 2017 in Senegal, The Seereer Resource Centre and Seereer Radio teams as well as Radio Ndef Leng Diourbel 96.4 FM came together to pay a special tribute to Professor Issa Laye Thiaw.  This two hour tribute replaced the regular  Open Mike programme usually presented by Mamadou Fall. Folloiwng his passing, The Seereer Centre, Seereer Radio, Seereer Heritage Press and their teams issued a joint tribute published on Seereer Radio's website. You can read the full tribute by visiing this link if you are using a computer or visiting this website (www.seereerpodcast.org). Alternatively,  you can  check the  website links below or visit Seereer Radio's website (Schedule --> Presenters --> Obituary of Issa Laye Thiaw).

Professor Issa Laye Thiaw was not just a proud member of the SRC and Seereer Radio, but a family. We the Seereer and Senegambian community owe it to this great man to help support his works and family by buying his book La femme Seereer which is filled with great information as anyone who have read the book can attest to. We hope when the time comes for us to ask for the community's support in bringing to life the SRCTIW (The Seereer Resource Centre and The Temple of Initiated Women) project, the Seereer community, other Senegambians, Africans and those from the Diaspora will rally behind us and help us preserve the legacy of this man. For those who knew him, this project has been one of his best wishes that he wanted to give to the Seereer, Senegambian, African and those the Diaspora who were separated from their motherland due to the horrible history of slavery. It is sad that he will not be here to witness the completion of this project, but we can unite and ensure that one of his greatest wishes comes to fruition. 

The Seereer Resource Centre, Seereer Radio, Seereer Heritage Press,  Tamsier JoofDemba SeneMamadou FallDimlé Sène and all team members of the SRC and Seereer Radio would like to offer their heartfelt and sincere condolences to his family and friends. This is a huge lost as expressed by colleagues.

What does the flag of Siin symbolises? What is the meaning and etymology of the words: Seereer, Saafi, Ndut, Sili, Noon or Laalaa or Ñoominka? Etc.

On this show, anything goes. You set the questions and answer them. No question is stupid. If it is important to you it is important to us. On this first ever Mpatir Ayif show, Tamsier Joof, joined by Laity Sene, Demba Sene and Moussoukoro Sidibé asks whether President Adama Barrow fit to lead The Gambia?
