    Senegal’s opposition has deplored the sidelining of President Macky Sall's two biggest political opponents: Khalifa Sall, Dakar's former mayor, and Karim wade, the son of former president Abdoulaye Wade. Both were convicted of misusing public funds and consequently barred from running in Sunday’s presidential election. Their supporters claim it is a political plot, while the government repeats that justice is independent in the country. Despite being taken out of the running the two opposition figures still plan to make their voices heard in the upcoming vote. What are their strategies? And how can they really impact the vote? Our correspondents Sarah Sakho and William de Lesseux report.
