Jeetaay : Presented by Doudou Diouf (Thursday, 7th March 2019) - controversy and fall outs

Jeetaay is an informal phone-in, e-mail or text-in talk show where you contact the studio and chat with the presenter about anything and everything.  However, for the next few months (as from January 2019), we will be giving a new twist to this show. For the next few months, Seereer Radio's presenters will be bringing up topics on Seereer Radio Presenters' WhatsApp group chat to be discussed each week by all our presenters and special guests.

Our presenters rotate each week and take the role of main presenter. The main presenter will then bring up topics to be discussed by his/her co-presenters. Discussions closes by 15:00 GMT every Wednesday. These audio messages are then edited and broadcast on Seereer Radio every Thursday night at 21:00 GMT. The entire show is by WhatsApp - 100%. There will be little editing prior to broadcasting on Seereer Radio because we want to keep the raw and authentic feel of a typical WhatsApp group chat. We are currently experimenting with some of our shows using WhatsApp. We are one of the first Senegambian radio stations (online or frequency) to use this format -100%. WhatsApp is one of the major messaging services used by most Senegambians. We will be utilising this format once a week for the next couple of months mixed with our usual live broadcast format. 

This Jeetaay Show was recorded from 28th February to 6th March 2019 and broadcast on Seereer Radio on Thursday, 8th March 2019 at 21:00 GMT. There was no Jeetaay show last week due to our coverage of Senegal's Presidential Elections. Our apologies.  

The main presenter was Doudou Diouf. The content of this show was not planned. As you can hear at the beginning of this audio - right after Doudou Diouf's introduction, Mamadou Fall was congratulating President Macky Sall's APR supporters for winning the election.  Following Mamadou Fall's audio, Tamsier Joof joined in and stated that as a broadcaster, he will remain neutral and will not congratulate any party. He then followed that audio by leaving a WhatsApp text in the group which reads: 

"Having said that, none of the political parties addressed the Seereer issue. Something which concerns me greatly. In light of the fact that most of Senegal's revenue derives from agriculture, a sector dominated by the Seereer (the bread basket of Senegal), it concerns me that the Seereer are among the poorest in Senegal yet none of the political parties have policies in place to address this issue."

After that text message, Doudou Diouf jumped in an left an audio co-signing Tamsier's text message. He then went on to state that the Seereer nowadays do not support one another, do not care about their community and are only interested interested in supporting political parties or presidential candidates if it helps to fill up their own pockets. Following, Doudou's audio, Tamsier jumped in and co-signed Doudou's audio by leaving the following text message:

"The Seereer make up [the] political elite of Senegal yet their community is the poorest. I'm so done with this. You are right. How can anyone support a group who do not even support their own?"

This is how the show started - resulting in an intense debate among the panelists. During the course of the debate, one of the panelists took issue with a word used by another panelist which he thought was directed at him. As a result, he left the group and Tamsier had to call him privately and persuaded him to rejoin the group. You will hear all this drama unfold in this audio. After all that drama, there was an announcement that one of the regular panelists has a new baby girl. Can you guess which one?

After the recording of this show, Doudou Diouf (the supposed anchor of this week's show) had to record an introduction which you can hear in the beginning - broadcast in Seereer.  This show was not planned.

After all that drama, there was an announcement that one of the regular panelists has a new baby girl. Can you guess which one?

Further questions:

1. Did any of Senegal's presidential candidates or their parties had policies in place directly addressing Seereer poverty despite the Seereer community being the bread basket of Senegal?

2. Do this generation of Seereers support one another? Historically, Seereers had always supported one another and where known for that by other Senegambian ethnic groups. However, what about this generation? Do they support the community?

3. Is asking political parties or presidential candidates to have policies in place in order to alleviate poverty among the Seereer encouraging tribalism or is it a legitimate request to make in light of the fact that, the Seereer people and their territories dominate Senegalese agriculture which according to the World Bank is the biggest revenue generator for Senegal? In other words, is it fair to ask Seereer communities to use their land and physical labour to generate wealth for the country yet they still remain among the poorest? What do you think?

4. Has the Seereer elite failed the Seereer community? If yes, why?
