Malawi debates farting

Malawian lawmakers will next week debate a law to criminalise public farting, which a cabinet minister said had been encouraged by democracy.

“The government has a right to ensure public decency. Would you like to see people farting in public anywhere?” justice and constitutional affairs minister George Chaponda told Capital Radio.

“It was not there during the time of dictatorship because people were afraid of the consequences. Now because of freedom, people would like to fart anywhere. Nature can be controlled… it becomes a nuisance if people fart anywhere,” said Chaponda, a lawyer.
