During a visit to Senegal as part of a four-country tour of Africa, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan says it’s important to shut down FETO-linked schools in Africa.

The Turkish president arrived in Senegal as part of a four-country tour of Africa which started on February 26 with a visit to Algeria, followed by Mauritania. His last stop will be Mali.

“Our cooperation with Senegal in combating FETO is to continue. Shutting down of FETO-linked schools is very, very important,” Erdogan said.

“We will raise a generation which is fond of its motherland, which works for the country and their family — through schools being established in Senegal via our Maarif Foundation,” he added.

Turkey established the Maarif Foundation in 2016 to take over the administration of overseas schools linked to FETO. It also establishes schools and education centres abroad.

FETO (Fethullah Terrorist Organisation) and its US-based leader Fethullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 250 people dead and nearly 2,200 injured.

By 2017 it was estimated 1.2 million Turks have passed through FETO schools which have an educational footprint extending to over 160 countries.

Erdogan said that 29 projects worth $775 million were launched by Turkish companies in Senegal, some of which are still underway.

The projects include a market hall, a furniture factory and a rail system, he said.

The Senegalese president said they were willing to continue efforts in further enhancing relations with Turkey.

“Senegal,…, is to continue working with Turkey in international matters and counter-terrorism cooperation,” Sall said.

He urged Turkey to invest in the country.

“Turks can invest in the field of mining, construction, tourism, health and energy in cooperation with Senegalese businesspeople,” he said.

Sall added that the country needs more hotels in Senegal to improve the tourism potential of the country and health investments to reduce the number of patients going to hospitals abroad.

The Senegalese president added that they stand on the same side as Turkey on the Palestinian issue.

Nine students died after fire engulfed a dormitory at a secondary school in southern Uganda early Monday, police said, one of the deadliest in a string of conflagrations at schools across the country in recent years.

Police spokesman Patrick Onyango said, the nine male students died when the blaze erupted at a dormitory that housed about 130 students at St. Bernard Maya secondary school in a district near the border with Tanzania.



Security personnel, Onyango said, suspect the fire was started deliberately by a group of students who had been expelled days earlier from the same school over indiscipline.
