One of the biggest flops at this year’s independence celebration was at the close of the event.

After the departure of President John Dramani Mahama, the visiting presidents – Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta and Guinea-Bissau’s Jose Mario Vaz – were left standing in the scorching sun for over 15 minutes waiting for their vehicles.

Ex-President Jerry John Rawlings noticing the mishap walked to President Kenyatta to keep him company as the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Hannah Tetteh, run around to salvage the situation.

The look on President Kenyatta’s face was a clear sign of displeasure until Former President Rawlings walked to him.

This gross display of indiscipline, lack of responsibility and negligence of duty must not go unpunished.

Where was the protocol team at that time?
