Just days after Rangwe MP Dr Lilian Achieng Gogo suggested ways to combat farting on planes, lawyer Miguna Miguna has also weighed in on the matter.

Through a tweet, Miguna bashed the MP, saying she had stooped too low.

“I knew that something was wrong with this woman when I saw her eating ugali and fish with a fork, twice.

“In Luo culture, it is an abomination for a grown-up to do that. This is how low the con-man's sycophants have reduced themselves to,” he wrote.

Earlier this week, Gogo complained of how she had to endure periods of uneasiness due to people farting during flights.

“There is one irritant that is often ignored and this is the level of farting within the aircraft. There are passengers, who literary irritate fellow passengers by passing bad smell and uncomfortable fart.

“If there is anyone given irritant that makes people fight on board, it is the fart, it is terrible within the plane,” Dr Gogo said. 

When asked on whether she had a workable formula to combat this, the lawmaker suggested special training for aircraft crew and medical systems to manage food offered aboard flights.

“We need special training on aircraft crew so that they provide medicines like bicarbonate of soda after to passengers after meals and drinks have been served. We should also have paramedics, who are trained in basic first aid included in the international and local flights,” she remarked.

Adding: “If I am the only one who has experienced this, then I think the rest of us are very lucky. We should have basic provisions of medicines such as Eno other than paracetamols on the flight.”

“I have experienced passengers go through the agony of long flights. We cannot be secure on board when the other passengers are experiencing discomfort. Farting and flatulence is done progressively and can be contained.”
