“Karim Wade has not even walked the Senegalese soil yet that he is at the center of all discussions but also of all controversies. Gorgui’s son accused the highest jurisdictions of this country of corruption. And especially since Karim Wade cited by 2 judges namely, one of which was immediately defended by one of his lawyers. The response was not long in coming. The Union of Magistrates of Senegal (UMS) and the Constitutional Council (CC) reacted vigorously. And Karim Wade is not at the end of his sorrows. He risks ending up with arrest terms before he even left Dakar.
Will come or will not come? The return of Karim Wade is no longer at the center of news since the Senegalese are now sure that Wade’s son will not return to this country or in 2024 even less in the next 5 years to come. Xibaaru has always said, Karim Wade will not return to Senegal as soon as possible. And Xibaaru had even proven with arguments that Karim is afraid of returning to Senegal.
Karim Wade never intended to return to Senegal. His candidacy was a game to get back to the center of the political game. But through the acts posed, Karim Wade has proven in the face of everyone that his candidacy for the presidential election next February, was only bluff. For a candidate who wants to conquer the Senegalese electorate, Karim Wade, until January 20, the date of the proclamation of the final list of candidates for the presidential election, had still not returned to Senegal. Two weeks before the start of the electoral campaign scheduled for February 3.
Being absent from Senegal since 2016, if Karim Wade was serious about his candidacy for the presidential election of February 2024, with all the time remained outside Senegal, he would have returned to the country at least 6 less from the deadline to put himself In contact with populations in Senegal depths. This is proof that Karim Wade seeks to sow Zizania by being indignant at the non -validation of his candidacy by the Constitutional Council.
Karim Wade is guilty of the offense of perjury, after having sworn on paper at the time of the submission of his candidacy that he then only had exclusively from Senegalese nationality. While it was not until January 16 for less than a week from the proclamation of the final list that the French government had released the decree of the renunciation of its French nationality.
In reality, his participation in the presidential election has never been an objective for Karim Wade. Otherwise, he would have taken all the measures to give up his French nationality in time. Karim Wade seeks to calm the game with many activists from the PDS who blame him for having missed this future presidential election, after that of 2019. This is disorder with many activists of the PDS who are starting to growl.
This is why, he wants to reject the whole fault of the Constitutional Council of which he accuses two wise men of the 7 of being corrupt. While one of the two wise men who is none other than Cheikh Tidiane Coulibaly had played a major role by exonerating at the time of the members of the PDS in the assassination of Me Babacar Sèye who was the vice-president of the Constitutional Council.
Everyone had greeted at the time the courage that the investigating judge had shown then, Cheikh Tidiane Coulibaly to whom the file had been entrusted. At the time, Karim Wade was just a kid. He was not until 16 years old. He is mistaken by attacking such an honest man who had refused to play a role in a company of destabilization of the PDS that the PS then in power wanted, by accusing him of being a corrupt.”to
