Default Breaking wind a crime in Malawi

Breaking wind is to become a crime in Malawi


Breaking wind is to become a crime in Malawi - mirror.co.uk


BREAKING wind could be outlawed in an African country – and it is already causing a stink.

The government of Malawi plan to punish persistent offenders “who foul the air” in an effort to “mould responsible and ­disciplined ­citizens”.
However, locals fear pinning responsibility for the crime on individuals will be difficult and may lead to miscarriages of justice.

One Malawian wrote on an African news website: “My goodness. What happens in a public place where a group is gathered? Do they lock up half a minibus?

“Also, children will openly deny having passed bad air and point at an elder. Culturally, this is very embarrassing.”

Read more of the article at the link above. This has been a public service message for CruiseMates readers.
