Ultimately, promises the minister, “this new city will accommodate a population of nearly 3,000 inhabitants who will benefit from the amenities necessary for a healthy life in a decent setting far from the specters of floods and other natural calamities.” The Minister of Urban Planning, Public Hygiene and Living Environment did not fail to salute and congratulate the Land Development and Urban Renovation Company (Safru) which, according to him, “understood the vision well of the Head of State to precede all new housing constructions with prior servicing at tertiary level. “The development of this new city respects these standards thanks to the development work carried out,” he rejoices before announcing other development projects spread across the regions of Dakar, Thiès, Diourbel, Fatick and Kaolack.
