The Covid-19 pandemic is taking its toll on many government officials and they are all a bit stressed. Some might even have no control over unforeseen situations, like the unfortunate one in the video below. 

A video of a government official apparently passing a wind during a television interview, is doing the rounds on social media.

According to the video, Eastern Cape Health MEC Sindiswa Gomba suddenly released a wind and said, "Sorry about that." 

Do you think this really happened? 

Watch the hilarious moment below: 

However, according to Herald Live, Gomba stated that the video is fake and it is a malicious attempt to tarnish her image.

Health spokesperson Sizwe Kupelo said the videos that went viral on social media were edited to misrepresent the MEC.

This didn't stop the talented Max Hurrell. Hurrel created another viral sensation - and it's hilarious.
