called Mor Khoudia Coumba Diop, b. c. 1255/1840, d. 1297/1880.
A Wolof speaker, he was born and died in Koki, a town founded by his grandfather Mukhtār Ndoumbé some 30 km. east of Louga. Very little is known about his training as a scholar, though he is said to have studied under some Mauritanian shaykhs. Much of his writing has been lost. This much we do know: he was affiliated to the Tijāniyya and was also the author of a treatise on Arabic grammar widely used in Islamic schools in Senegambia
