    Opposition parties in Senegal are preparing to demonstrate ahead of next year's presidential election.

    Critics accuse President Macky Sall of eliminating challengers so he can retain power.

    Earlier this year, he sacked the mayor of Dakar, a potential opponent who has been jailed for corruption.

    But Senegal's opposition leaders are forced to get creative to win votes.
