A delegation of Ghanaian legislators found themselves in the midst of violent protests during an official visit to the Kenyan Parliament.

The MPs, primarily from the country’s Local Government Committee, were quickly moved to safety as riots erupted outside the parliamentary building.

In a video captured by Asuogyaman MP Thomas Ampen Nyarko, several MPs were seen being escorted to a secure location.

Among those identified in the footage were Sylvester Tetteh, MP for Bortianor-Ngleshie Amanfro, Emmanuel Akwasi Gyamfi, and Nii Lante Vanderpuye, all members of the Local Government Committee.

 Anita Quartey-Papafio, a clerk from Parliament responsible for Governance Cluster Committees, was also part of the delegation.

Despite the chaos outside, Ghana’s High Commissioner to Kenya has reassured that the Ghanaian community in Kenya remains safe.
