Kadoma mulls portable pay toilets


Kadoma City Council is mulling the introduction of portable public pay toilets to improve hygiene in the town which has only one public ablution facility in the central business district.

Mayor Muchineripi Chinyanganya said the council would purchase the portable toilet cubicles as a stop-gap measure as the financially-challenged council currently did not have capacity to build permanent structures.

“As a temporary measure, we should buy movable toilets which we would put at strategic places for use by the public at a nominal fees of about R2 for the service,” Chinyanganya said.

The mayor said the token fee would be used for disposal of effluent, while the local authority looked for funds to construct permanent toilets in the city centre.

His remarks followed an outcry by weekend flea market traders who use the sole public pay toilet situated at the town’s commuter omnibus rank which they say is filthy and congested.

The traders use the facility for free during weekends, while one has to fork out R5 during normal working days.

Due to the prevailing situation, members of the public use toilets at bars, restaurants, among other public utilities, while others relieve themselves in nearby bushes and alleys.
