Ghanaian communities have unique names that are usually given by early settlers.

Some of these communities are named after people, situations and occasions.

In Ghana, lawmakers on Thursday could not bear it when a minister of state was responding to issues relating to some communities.

It’s simply because the names of these communities were amusing to many.

Some of the names of these villages were named after the male and female genitals.

Names such as Etwe nim Nyansa (Vagina is wise), Kote Ye Aboa (Penis is a fool) and Shua ye Morbor (Sad Testicles) caused laughter in the legislature.

Excerpts of the statement read in the lawmaking Chamber

It appears reactions to the name show that some Ghanaians haven’t heard of these names given to such villages before.
