Now that’s a Sh*thole!

Girls are banned from crossing a river while they are menstruating – or if it is a Tuesday – on the orders of a ‘river god’ in Ghana

Girls in Ghana have been banned from crossing a river while having their period after a command was reportedly given by the waterway’s ‘god’.

The divine order also forbids girls crossing the River Ofin in the Ashanti region of the African country on Tuesdays.

It means that half the children in the area – the Upper Denkyira East district – are likely to lose time at school as a consequence.

    Afric only gets worse than this. Much worse.

    There is one comment on the Daily Mail story and it’s 11 hours old. The censors must have been busy with that one.

    And yet the nature-worshipping Animists are still better than Moslems.

      Definitely a lot less of the “kill the infidel” thing.

    Obama’s father came to America from Africa to learn the “white man’s magic”. I guess it must have been to get a white American woman pregnant.
