The son of the past president of Senegal, Karim Wade, was condemned to six years in jail. Reason? A special Senegalese “Anti-Corruption Court” found that, thanks to complex financial conspiracies, Karim stole 178 million dollars.
He was also condemned to a 230 million dollar fine. Wade, Karim, does not have (yet) to regurgitate most of his 1.4 billion dollar fortune.
President Wade was (officially) a socialist, and ruled for 12 years.
Now Senegal, a country where I grew more, as a child, than any other, has a long democratic tradition.
