Rappers from Senegal have helped set up a movement known as ‘Enough is Enough’ calling for greater democracy and better living conditions. One of their key demands is for President Abdoulaye Wade to drop plans to stand for a third-term in office. They are also urging young people to register to vote ahead of next year’s elections.
