This is due to digikam's behavior: Existing tags from Metadata are kept.

There are two possible solutions to this problem:
1) When the tag is changed, the metadata of all images with this tag would need to be resynchronized automatically, actually only those files where the tag has been written to the metadata.
2) Digikam would need to know that Places/Senegal was formerly Senegal. This boils down to keep a map of tag movement history.

You see that both solution have significant side effects.
