Ghana Parliament Giggle over ‘Wise Vagina’ Village Name

Nobody could keep a straight face in Ghana’s parliament when MP John Frimpong Osei began listing the names of some villages in his constituency that included references to genitals.

Names in the Twi language like “Vagina is Wise” and “Penis is a Fool” left lawmakers in fits of giggles. The MP was asking when these areas would get access to electricity. “Providing them with electricity may interfere with nocturnal activities,” joked EnergyMinister Boakye Agyarko. The minister added, in earnest, that a survey would be conducted into how the villages in Abirem constituency in Eastern Region could be connected to the national grid.
