“Why would Senegalese troops go to Yemen to fight a war that is not theirs?” is a widely shared view on social media today.
And many did not go far before making the link between President Macky Sall’s recent announcement that Saudi Arabia would invest heavily in the government development programme known as Programme Senegal Emergent 2035 (PSE), and the decision to send troops to the kingdom.
A well-known columnist went as far as saying that “the blood of the jambars will be funding the PSE”.
Senegal, a Majority Sunni Muslim country, is the only non-Arabic country to join the Saudi-led coalition.
