One Homabay MCA on Wednesday decided to fart in the county assembly chambers spoiling the entire air in the house forcing the Assembly Speaker to temporarily suspended the Proceedings of a heated debate.
According to sources in the House, The assembly doesn’t have funs and yesterday was a hot afternoon and most members were flapping pieces of paper to cool themselves. For about ten minutes, members of the assembly were allowed to walk out of the room and get fresh air, to allow the pungent smell to ease away.
Homa Bay Town East MCA Juma Awuor was on the floor, debating the lack of shades in markets when he was interrupted by the presiding speaker Edwin Kakach. The speakers’ attention had been drawn to a group of male MCAs who were locked in a heated argument and were pointing fingers at each other.
Central Karachuonyo MCA Julius Gaya stood up and decided to spill the beans.
“Honorable speaker, one of us has polluted the air and I know who it is,” he said.
He went ahead to directly accuse one of his colleague for farting in the chamber. The accused MCA denied being guilty. “I am not the one. I cannot do such a thing in front of my colleagues,” he told the Speaker.
“Let the sergeant spray the air with fresheners to make it pleasant. Get whatever flavor you will find in any office, whether it’s vanilla or strawberry. We cannot continue sitting in an environment that smells bad,” Mr Kakach ordered.
But before the sergeants could get back to the house, the bad odor had cleared.
