3 Students Set Themselves On Fire In Senegal by kgbd(m): 11:19pm On Mar 15, 2013
DAKAR: A student leader said that three university students set fire to themselves on the campus of Senegal’s largest university to protest changes in the way credits are being counted in the college’s geography department.

Seydou Niang, who organised a weeklong hunger strike, said that three of his classmates doused themselves in gasoline and set themselves alight on Friday. Niang spoke on the telephone from the hospital, where he had accompanied the three. He said all three had survived, but one had suffered severe burns and was in intensive care.

The University of Cheikh Anta Diop was once one of the most prestigious universities in West Africa. It has fallen into disrepair and the campus is frequently immobilised both by student protests and strikes by the low-paid professors.

While I find it sad for the families who have to suffer through it, self immolation is a courageous way to protest rather than being violence towards others or destroying property. It is using your body as a sacrifice to the message you want to deliver. As you can see, we now all realize the severity of the students' plight in Dakar as a result of these acts. Instead of calling them foolish, one would hope the conversation soon turns to the deficiencies in our universities. I pray for them and the cause they espouse.

Good for them that they didn't die.
They have survived so they can be a good example to other lunatics that going to the extreme no dey pay. I am imagining how they will be reeling in pain now and the shame that they will go through cos of their disfigured faces now. #Hehehehe.

Rubbish! They did not want to die! They should have poured more petrol on themselves. They think that after doing that, their CPGA will skyrocket while in their hospital beds?
