    APA-Dakar (Senegal)

    Senegal’s Former Minister of State and Foreign Affairs Minister Djibo Leyti Kâ passed away on Thursday in Dakar at the age of 69, following a long illness.

    His passing was announced during the first plenary session of the 13th legislature of the National Assembly held in the Senegalese capital, which got under way on Thursday.

    It was MP Abdoulaye Makhtar Diop of the ruling Benno Bokk Yakaar coalition who announced the sad news to his colleagues, asking them to temporarily suspend the session in order to pray for the deceased.

    Djibo Kâ was Minister of the Interior in the Socialist Party government in which he was one of the leading officials. He left the PS to create the Union for Democratic Renewal (URD).

    Serving several times as an MP, Djibo Ka responded to the call to work with the government of President Macky Sall, who appointed him president of the Commission for the Dialogue of Territories, a position he held until his passing Thursday at the Madeleines clinic in Dakar.
