One slapped her, the other kicked her. I come from the hospital and it is not obvious that she can keep her child, » informed Dr. Malick Diop, 3rdVice-President of the National Assembly and member of the parliamentary group Benno bokk yaakaar (Bby), who was at the bedside of his assaulted colleague. « I condemn this act. The woman is the nourishing sap of Senegal. You should not assault a woman. She is our mother, our sister, » the parliamentarian added.

There were many MPs who deplored this act. According to Nicolas Ndiaye, MP and member of the Bby group, « neitherinsults should justify it, nor the behaviour of the President of the National Assembly, nor alleged violence or insults outside the Hemicycle. We always hear insults since this assembly exists, but this new level is an insult to the Senegalese people who elected the MPs, » said Mr. Ndiaye. Before inviting all democrats in the country to condemn their colleagues who were behind these acts.
