Cities from scratch – Diamniadio

A twenty-minute ride east of Dakar close to the Blaise Diagne International Airport a new satellite city Diamniadio is about to be born. These images were shot from a moving car.

I am wondering who is going to be moving here? Who lives here already? At least some of the ministers of the Senegalese government have their new home in Diamniadio and there are reports that the conditions are still very elementary with frequent water cuts. But as one of the the residential areas called La Résidence de l’Espoir suggests: there is hope!
