Kenyan Dignatories Take Time Out to Broch Lighthouse Museum

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson MSP and Cllr Charles Buchan welcomed Patrick Wanjiru, an MP from the Kiambu County Assembly in Kenya, along with two officials from the Assembly - David Ngure and Angela Kagunyi - to Fraserburgh at the weekend.

Mr Wanjiru is the leader of the largest party in the Assembly, which is one of 47 devolved legislatures in Kenya.

The visitors were in Scotland owing to a connection that they have with the Starfish Project, which is run by Edwin and Jayne Wiseman. Mr Wanjiru oversees the work of the project in Kenya.

Mr Stevenson commented:

“I was delighted to welcome Patrick, David and Angela to Fraserburgh. They were keen to learn about how Scotland is governed and I was pleased to tell them about this, especially at such an important time in Scotland’s history.”

Cllr Buchan added:

“I was honoured to take part in the meeting at the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses, with Partick Wanjiru and Stewart Stevenson MSP. The discussion ranged widely and included Scotland’s political history, constitutional issues, and local Fraserburgh issues. There followed a tour of the Lighthouse, Wine Tower and Museum, conducted by volunteer guide Mike Chandler, which was greatly appreciated.

“Partrick and his team are hosted by Edwin and Jayne Wiseman, of Starfish, who do so much good work for their charity in Africa.”
