Correction: Story on insecticide firm hiring man whose fart kills mosquitoes false

Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in

In December 2019, YEN.com.gh published a story regarding a man from Uganda who was allegedly hired at an insecticide company as his fart was able to kill mosquitoes in his village.

Further checks we conducted have revealed that the story was actually from a parody site and it was thus unreal.

There is no such individual who has been hired to produce insecticides. We are happy to set the record straight.
