Brawl breaks out in Senegal parliament after male lawmaker slaps female colleague


A wild brawl was caught on video in Senegal’s parliament this week after a male opposition lawmaker slapped a female colleague of the ruling party, reports say. 

The confrontation between Massata Samb and Amy Ndiaye Gniby of the Benno Bokk Yakaar coalition erupted during a budget presentation.  

Samb was addressing the chamber about recent comments Gniby had made in which she had criticized a spiritual leader’s opposition to the idea of President Macky Sall seeking a third term, according to Reuters.  

“Mister president, a deputy has stood in front of this tribune to insult someone’s marabout [spiritual leader],” Samb was quoted by Reuters as saying.
