A man whose farts kill mosquitoes claims to have been signed up by insect repellent companies probing the secret of his killer gas. Joe Rwamirama, 48, from Uganda says boffins have launched a study into the chemical properties of his unique trouser toxin.
The odd job man says no one in his home village has ever contracted malaria because his powers knock out insects over a six-mile radius.
Local barber James Yoweri said: "He is known all over the city as the man who can kill mosquitoes with his farts. When Joe is around, we all know that mosquitoes will vanish. He is respectful of people around him and will only fart when there are mosquitoes around which bring malaria. His farts get rid of this disease."
Joe said: I eat ordinary food just like everyone else but no insect can lay a foot on me, not even a fly. I smell like a normal man and I bathe daily and my farts are just like everyone else, they are only dangerous to small insects and especially mosquitoes. Joe dreams of his marketing his gas and added: Imagine buying a Raid can with my face on it!
