Bécaye Diop doesn’t want to hear about national mourning. The mayor of Ross-Béthio is of the opinion that heads of state need not declare national condolences in honor of the hundreds of Senegal victims of illegal immigration.
Because “public mourning is generally proclaimed in the event of a loss of life following a serious event. But when we face a brave death, ultimately when we commit suicide, there is no need to declare national condolences,” thought Becaye Diop.
For him, young people can draw inspiration from the models of success that abound in the country. “This crisis, which all countries are going through, has lost hope, especially among young people. Adding to this the false illusions conveyed by people abroad suggests that we can get rich and understand this phenomenon as soon as we go to Europe or the United States, but we should blame and suggest: “The models and examples of these young people who set out in agriculture and walked the path towards economic and social success,” advises Bécaye Diop.
