Cosaan Seereer : The Opposition political march in Senegal (broadcast on 15th October 2016)

October 16, 2016
This show is a reprogramming of our regular Cosaan Seereer show which broadcast every Saturday from 14:00 pm (GMT). On this day, we were due to have the famous Senegalese drummer Omar Thiam on the show but had to cancel that interview when we found out that Omar Thiam's younger brother was one of those injured in the Friday, 14th October 2016 political march organised by the Senegalese Opposition. We wish Omar's brother and all those injured a speedy recover, and would like to assure our listeners that we will try and get Omar Thiam another day.
