INHABITANTS OF SENEGAL'S BOUNKILING DEMONSTRATE AGAINST POOR PHONE QUALITY

Telecoms

The inhabitants of Bounkiling, a place 60 kms from Sédhiou organised a series of demonstrations on National Route No 4, known locally as the Transgambian as it connects the two countries. The main reason for the protests were a series of unpredictable network failures that led to them being cut off for periods of time over a month. The protesters also wanted Sonatel to open an office in Bounkiling so that they did not have to travel to Sédhiou in order to pay their bills.
