Govt. Of Malawi Planning To Outlaw Breaking Wind

Apparently there is a new Local Court system which will have the power to enforce some new laws and also have the power to punish the offenders. Opposition leaders have termed the new courts - Kangroo courts.

If reports are to be believed, Dr. Bingu wants to make ‘farting in public’ illegal and a punishable offense. Before you start chuckling, could you just give this one a bit of a thought.

How are they going to err… assign the blame for the crime? I mean – How do they intend to prove Guilt Beyond Reasonable Doubt

Just in case there are people who bother with what gets published in the Daily Mail:

One Malawian told the website Africanews.com: 'My goodness. What happens in a public place where a group is gathered. Do they lock up half a minibus? And how about at meetings where it is difficult to pinpoint 'culprits'?

'Children will openly deny having passed bad air and point at an elder. Culturally, this is very embarrassing,' she said.
