Kenyan Senators stuck in Berlin amid coronavirus outbreak

Four Kenyan Senators are stranded in Germany as coronavirus outbreak disrupts traveling worldwide.

Reports indicate that the Senators had traveled for a key trade conference that was to be held in Berin, Germany.

However, the conference was cancelled as Covid-19 continues to claim more victims across the globe.

The senators, who are members of the Senate Tourism, Trade and Industrialisation committee.

Cancelled trips

Kirinyaga Senator Charles Kibiru, Loitiptip Anuar (Lamu), Christopher Langat (Bomet), Mwangi Githiomi (Nyandarua) and other parliamentary staffers were identified as the legislators stuck in Berlin.

A report by a local daily indicated that the team was facing financial woes after their per diem were exhausted before the conference began.

Kenyan MPs cancelled their travel to Berlin after the first coronavirus case was confirmed.

Speaker Lusaka speaks

Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka confirmed that the parliamentarians and staffers had travelled on an official trip and were expected back after the cancellation of the conference.

He dismissed reports that the senators are stranded in Berlin.

Yes, I can confirm, four of my members are in Germany capital, but it is untrue that they stuck or stranded. In fact, they should be on their way back home,” he said.
