A new Caliph has been enthroned to succeed Serigne Abdou Aziz Sy Al-Amine, who passed away last Friday.
The new Caliph is Serigne Mbaye Sy Mansour, the eldest son of the late Serigne Mouhamadou Mansour Sy (son of Elhadji Malick Sy and brother of Dabakh).
Born in 1932, Serigne Mbaye Sy Mansour is known for his direct and frank speech and is said to be of incorruptible character who is always truthful and a courteous and a man of God.
Until his new assignment as Caliph he was the spokesperson of the Tijanniya Tariq brotherhood.
Meanwhile, Serigne Pape Malick Sy, the youngest son of Serigne Babacarr Sy (first caliph general of EL Malick Sy), is now appointed as the new spokesperson of the Tijanniya Tariq Brotherhood.
