Sene­gal checks out SA

Sunday Times - - WEEK IN REVIEW -

Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma will host Sene­gal’s Pres­i­dent Macky Sall for a state visit this week. Sene­gal, which gained in­de­pen­dence from France in 1960, is widely re­garded as one of the most sta­ble and suc­cess­ful democ­ra­cies in Africa, hav­ing han­dled the tran­si­tion from colo­nial­ism ex­cep­tion­ally well. It has a high pro­file in many global or­gan­i­sa­tions and was a mem­ber of the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil in 1988-89 and 2015-16.

Friendly to the West, Sene­gal sup­ports the grant­ing of more help to de­vel­op­ing na­tions by de­vel­oped coun­tries.
