Kwami Sefa Kayi says he was not in Glasgow

• There were reports that he was part of the government 337 delegation

• But he said the last time he was in a plane was from Accra to Kumasi


Kwami Sefa Kayi, the host of Peace FM’s Kokrokoo Morning show, has denied rumours that he was part of the delegation to the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, United Kingdom.

There have been some controversies among Ghanaians on social media as to why the government of Ghana would send 337 delegations to the climate conference.

Documents being circulated on social media suggested that the government of Ghana sent 337 delegates to the COP26 which is expected to end on November 12.

Among the list was Sefa Kayi, Joy FM’s Seth Kwame Boateng and other journalists, people in academia, relevant ministries and others from the Civil Society Organisations were also listed.

The Chairman General, as he is known affectionately, was, however, not on his seat to host his show on the radio on Monday, November 8. This heightened the speculations among Ghanaians.

Speaking during a discussion on his show on Tuesday, November 9, Sefa Kayi stated categorically that, he never travelled to Glasgow.

He said, the last time he onboard a plane was from Accra to Kumasi and back to Accra.

“The last time I sat on a plane was Africa World from Accra-Kumasi-Accra. I have no idea if Africa World (Airlines) flies to Glasgow”.

"Anyway, just for the record, I wasn't in Glasgow," Kwami Sefa Kayi stressed. ''If you want to believe it, it is the truth. If you don't want to believe it, no wahala."

Meanwhile, the Executive Director of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has said the government’s delegation to the COP26 Summit in Glasgow, Scotland is not up to 337.

He explained, “Some of them did not get their Visas, others registered just to participate virtually, others couldn’t make it. By the count of the day, we had about 170 people as participants.”

“And these 170 people, most of them are coming from civil society organisations, academia, and the private sector. The government delegation per se amounted to 24 in number,” he added.
