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 Kampala, 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.
If true, that would make his fallout zone larger than that of the atomic bomb which destroyed Hiroshima in 1945.
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 gets rid of this disease.”
A Local chief who knew Joe, when he was growing up as a child, said he took him in to live with him during the malaria season and claimed no one nearby caught the disease.
