(Wind) Breaking news from Kenya

Members of Parliament all say, “It wasn’t me. It was him.

“It wasn’t me. It was you.”

A Kenyan MP has demanded a law to combat farting on planes as she believes it can cause ‘discomfort and insecurity on board’ flights.

Lilian Achieng Gogo made the comments while parliament was talking about possible amendments to a law on offenses committed on aircraft.

The request follows a bizarre row which broke out in Kenya’s Homa bay county assembly last month after a lawmaker accused a colleague of ‘polluting the air’.¬† The MP in question denied the claims and the speaker¬†ordered air fresheners to be brought to the chamber to tackle the problem.

Ms Gogo, the MP for Rangwe constituency in western Kenya, said: “There is one irritant that it is often ignored, and this is the level of farting within the aircraft.¬† This has been a problem ever since Barack Hussein was a little wind bag.”
