Senegalese minister of the Interior, Aly Ngouille Ndiaye, yesterday announced that the curfew which was first scheduled between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. will now be between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. effective Thursday 4 June 2020.
The ministry stated that the date for the reopening of schools would be announced later by the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education.
According to the release, the Ministry takes this matter very seriously and therefore wishes to warn all those that are engaged in peddling such wrong information to the public to desist from it as there is no date yet fixed for schools’ reopening.
“The Ministry is hereby urging the public to ignore such information circulating in the social media and wait for the official announcement of the exact date for the reopening of schools in general and any examination class in particular which will be circulated to the various mediums in the country,” the release concludes.
