VIDEO: Chaos as MP slaps female Lawmaker Senegal parliament

Television footage showed that a fight broke out in Senegal’s parliament on Thursday after a male opposition lawmaker slapped a female colleague in the face. This happened as tensions between politicians from the ruling party and those from the opposition party grew.

Massata Samb, a member of parliament from the opposition, walked up to Amy Ndiaye Gniby of the ruling Benno Bokk Yakaar (BBY) coalition and slapped her. This started a lot of fights.

Before another MP tackled her to the ground, Gniby threw a chair back at Samb. The session had to be stopped because lawmakers were fighting and insulting each other.

Since a legislative election in July, when the ruling party lost its comfortable majority, tensions between them have grown. This is because some people are worried that President Macky Sall will run for a third term in 2024.

Sall won’t say for sure if he wants to run for a third term, which the opposition says would be against the law and a promise he made before.

Sall, who is 60 years old, has a lot of supporters who say that a constitutional change reset the clock and let him run again.
