Flatulating or passing wind from the stomach through the anus, which is said to be normal and good for the body by doctors, is gradually becoming a cause of confusion and worry.
In some instances men fight with their wives over it, whiles others beat their children severely for the act of nature.
Whilst the reaction to flatulation, especially when the scent leaves a lot to be desired, has been varied but generally negative, listeners of Nhyira FM’s flagship programme, Wiase Mu Nsem were Thursday astonished when a 12 year old boy appeared with his story of being cursed for flatulating.
Charles Roji said he was playing a rubber ball with a friend when he flatulated. According to the boy, the timing of his flatulation did not go down with a middle aged woman who was passing by at that time which made the woman curse him.
After some months, Charles began swelling up, especially his stomach, and surprisingly all the spiritualists consulted by the family directed them to go to the woman and apologize.
He narrated his ordeal with a plea for help when he appeared on the show, hosted by Agya Wusu. ‘One day when we were playing soccer and I scored a goal, I was so happy that I flatulated, just when the woman got there. The woman, who was speaking Gonja, got very angry when my friends started teasing me that I had flatulated against the woman.
‘I got afraid when the woman started talking angrily while my friends continued to tease me…
‘I have been swollen for almost one year.’
