Senegal - Rebellion at Thies - Sarithia Dieye captured

The circumstances surrounding the outbreak of the Thies rebellion remain obscure. An article at the time said that the rebellion began after the sentencing to 15 days in jail of Diery Fall. He did not accept the charge and with associates, attacked and killed a young colonial officer, Monsieur Chautemps. Two days later, Diery Fall was caught and killed by his own brother who cut off his head and forearm to bring the Pouvergue administrator who had them exposed publicly as a warning and intimidation. Another assassin, Sarithia Dieye was caught a few days later at St. Mary of Bathurst in Gambia. All that remains of this dramatic episode are these remarkable postcards. After being caught on camera, Canar Fall (head of Western Baol province), his brother and "courtiers" were all deported to Guyana. This photograph shows Sarithia Dieye having been captured and Meissa Lahobe, who aided the arrest of Dieye at Bathurst. Date: 1904
