    Abstract

    Dans la nuit du 26 au 27 septembre 2002, l'Afrique devait connaître son "Titanic". Au large du Sénégal, le ferry, Le Joola, qui assurait la liaison Dakar-Ziguinchor sombrait en faisant plus de 1200 victimes. Si la tragédie du Joola est exceptionnelle par son nombre de victimes, elle vient s'ajouter à une longue liste de catastrophes impliquant les transports collectifs, ferroviaires ou routiers, en Afrique subsaharienne. En particulier dans les rues des villes africaines, les cars, minibus et autres véhicules de transport en commun font au quotidien plusieurs victimes. Lorsqu'on les additionne, elles peuvent atteindre un nombre effroyablement considérable comme l'atteste les chiffres sur Dakar. A travers, une analyse du fonctionnement du secteur, l'article tente de situer les responsabilités d'une telle tragédie.
