Senegalese prize-winner rejects French visa


After winning a free trip to France, Senegalese consultant Bousso Drame is saying “No, thank you.” Drame recently penned an open letter to the French consulate in Senegal claiming she was subjected to humiliating remarks and treated with suspicion when she applied for a visa.

Her trip was sponsored by the French Institute of Senegal, a government-operated cultural center, as the top prize for a French language competition. In her letter, Drame claims that her experience at the consulate is representative of the treatment received by many Senegalese people when dealing with French authorities.
