Fart Scuttles Debate In Parliament
A foul smell during a heated debate about market stalls disrupted proceedings in a Kenyan regional assembly.
According to reports, the speaker was forced to halt proceedings after one of the members he blamed denied causing the chaos.
“Honourable Speaker, one of us has polluted the air and I know who it is,” Julius Gaya reportedly told Homa Bay county assembly.
But the member he accused of farting was said to have replied: “I am not the one. I cannot do such a thing in front of my colleagues.”
Hoping to clear the air, the assembly’s Speaker Edwin Kakach then instructed members to step outside and take a break from the chamber.
Reports said he asked officials to bring in air fresheners to make it pleasant.
“Get whatever flavour you will find in any office, whether it’s vanilla or strawberry. We cannot continue sitting in an environment that smells bad,” he said.
