‘Fart’ disrupts Kenyan Assembly debate


    A fart reportedly disrupted a heated debate about market stalls at a Kenyan regional Assembly earlier this week.

    According to the BBC, fingers were pointed by Julius Gaya who reportedly said “Honourable Speaker, one of us has polluted the air and I know who it is”.

    But the member he accused of farting reportedly replied: “I am not the one. I cannot do such a thing in front of my colleagues.”

    The Assembly Speaker Edwin Kakach, in hoping to clear the air, asked members to take a break outside the chamber.

    Reports indicate that he also 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”.

    However, the foul smell is said to have subsided before any sprays were found, allowing the debate to continue.
