Morocco’s economic capital, Casablanca, is getting ready to welcome King Mohammed VI’s visit to Casablanca. As a result, major projects have been accelerated sharply, to avoid « royal anger ».
The King of Morocco, Mohammed VI, as traditionally during the holy month of Ramadan, visits the city of Casablanca. To welcome the Cherifian sovereign in a good mood, the city tries to make itself even more beautiful. The major works undertaken, which have been greatly delayed, have seen their pace accelerate sharply, in order to avoid a « royal anger ».
If the people of Casablanca are very happy about the visit of the King to the White City, especially because of the special measures taken by the authorities to beautify the city and do everything possible to give the King a warm welcome, there could be some problems. The work that has been started is not completed on time, a situation that could trigger the king’s anger.
It was to avoid this anger of the king that Interior officials went to Casablanca last month on a mission to inspect the major sites that were at a standstill. This had led the officials of the city of Casablanca to open the Almohades hopper, the longest tunnel in Morocco, and thus make the traffic in the white city more fluid.
It should be noted, however, that King Mohammed VI’s visit to Casablanca also anticipated the opening of the Hassan II Mosque tunnel, which has been closed for many months due to work, and it is hoped that the sovereign will be satisfied with the new efforts made. Otherwise, heads may well roll after the sovereign’s visit.
