Senegal – Mystic leader

A member of the Baye Fall Brotherhood collects donations in the city center of Dakar. Traditionally, members of the Baye Fall Brotherhood prove their devotion to God through hard labor in the fields of their Marabouts. In modern times, some Baye Fall members replace manual work with roaming the streets asking for donations. Many Senegalese think the Baye Fall should rather work in the fields than beg for money. A big part of the wealth of the highest Marabouts in the country is due to physical work or to financial contributions of several generations of Baye Fall disciples.
