Will Senegal be bowled over by big projects?
Senegal has witnessed a flurry of inaugurations of ambitious, big-budget projects in the last few months, including a new train line, a new bridge and the imposing Museum of Black Civilisations.
Happily snipping the ribbons has been President Macky Sall, who is seeking a second term in office in elections on Sunday.
“I will be voting for the first time and my choice is Macky Sall,” said Mouhamad Thiam speaking to the BBC at a campaign rally in support of the president in the town of Kaolack, about 225km (140 miles) east of the capital, Dakar.
“I think his record is positive, his programme is positive, his accomplishments are positive.”
