NPP blasts Kenya government over Mac Manu saga

NPP General Secretary John Boadu said the action of the Kenyan authorities was wrong, regardless of the motive.

Speaking to Joy News, Mr Boadu said Mac Manu was leading an election observer team, denying that he was there to effect a regime change.

He said: "I had a wind of what happened at the Airport. It is unfortunate that a country like Kenya that has been evolving will engage in something like this.

“They were the first country to have experienced the use of law court to settle election dispute.'

“Mac Manu is a member of the Democratic Union of Africa which is a sub body of the bigger body of the International Democratic Union.

“It is rather unfortunate that the Kenya authorities will behave like that.

“I don’t know what the motive was. Whatever it was, it was wrong."

Mac Manu was prevented from entering the East African nation on Friday ahead of the country's general elections.

James Orengo, a senior official in the National Super Alliance (NASA) opposition coalition, told Journalists in Nairobi that Mac Manu was prevented from entering Kenya along with another Ghanaian.

He said: “Last night, there were two Ghanaians who were coming to help and share their experiences, not as employees but to share experiences with us on how elections were conducted in Ghana.

“And as you know, the system of elections to the extent that it depends on electronics is similar to that of Ghana.

“And they were removed from their plane, or planes. They did not formally disembark from the plane.

“They were taken away by the police and pushed into another plane sending them all to Ghana."
