#2 Wade might succeed with the help of U.S. Legal Firm

#3 From Willy's link to the law firm:
In addition to Baker, the firm includes former Georgia governor Zell Miller, who initially appointed Baker to the attorney-general post, as well as Howard Dean, a former Democratic presidential candidate and governor of Vermont.

French is the language for Govt paperwork and education. Wolof is the largest common language; it's the language for dickering in the market and hailing a taxi. Senegalese French has a heavy African flavor. I presume that neither former governor is fluent in Senegalese French; so presumably the firm is not relying directly on them.

Wade (pronounced WA-day) is 86 years old. Natural "term limits" should kick in soon. However, he is probably buying time for Wade Junior (I forget his proper name) to get into position to take over the office. Wade Junior is in his 50s, and was raised in France. He doesn't speak much Wolof, which puts him at a serious disadvantage. He is decidedly not popular.

#4 An article from Seneweb ( says that Wade has availed himself of various sorcerers and charlatans to assure victory in the next election. Per Google translate (which doesn't know any more than I do what the Wolof words embedded in the text are):

Wade wants to win the 2012 presidential election. The incumbent of the presidential majority was paid for the services of great gurus and charlatans. Master Wade wants to surround himself with all the guarantees to win the battle of 26 February next. Wade has secured the services of great wizards who have recommended him many sacrifices and offerings made ​​to it during the day and night of Saturday, Feb. 4.

A covert operation from our colleagues at the Observer, 87 oxen slain in the blue, 32 radios available to both sexes, thousands of liters of water available for gamou and to top it off the screen mystical palace . The candidate of fal does not stop with the, the gurus have even conducted a ritual "bunkerisation" of pronouncing the name of some presidential candidates still inform our colleagues at the Observer.
