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.

Additional information : With regret, the second portion of this show was not recorded. We thought it was being recorded but it was on pause.

In that portion she also mentioned some of Jammeh's enablers. We apologise for this error on our part and will endeavour our utmost to bring Sukai Dahaba on the show again for a more detailed interview. In the meantime, you can check out all our audio interviews with Sukai by scrolling through our categories and selecting Sukai's own category titled : "Sukai Dahaba (X) : Leader of the Kaalama Revolution".
