God mother: Waranka BA
Waranka BA was a woman who
invested all her energies for development in the early occupation of
Rail. She settled down this slummy district which originated from the
of Dakar and
the growth of the rural exodus in the 1970’s. Of course in
neither basic infrastructures
nor urban services could be found in the district in those days.
Young kids had to cross the rail
roads or the high way in other words they had to go a long way to fetch
knowledge. For medical cares too people would go toward hospitals which
mainly located in Pikine. Having access to drinkable water was classed
utopia so people would get water from wells otherwise they would go a
put it this way: behind the rail roads.
then prevailing situation
which was an obvious sign of poverty couldn’t leave a women
like “mere Waranka”
(mother Waranka) indifferent,” Mum WARANKA” so we,
young people in those days,
used to call her.
In political parties, communal
associations and ”Mbootay” (association for
development), she had always acted
as an unrivalled leader by blowing an extraordinary dynamism, and clear
in the projects for the improvement of the population of Guinaw
conditions and environment.
Thanks to her devotion to the
cause of basic development and her desperate struggle for sustainable
development Guinaw Rail has obtained its present collective equipments
basic urban services. Besides some of them such as the well-known
market, some fountains, services, etc., are named after her.
From the then and still
beloved mother who passed away in the morning of October the 18th
2003 after a brief illness, we took the flag and are determined to keep
flying by continuing tirelessly the fight for the development of our
and a better environment; because we do know that there are still many
challenges yet to pick up.
now on her name will be inherently linked with our whole philosophy and
