The Residents of Nkawkaw Nsuta in the Eastern Region are unhappy about the deplorable nature of their public toilet.
The toilet in question is the only public toilet serving about One thousand, Five hundred inhabitants in the area. It was built by Former President Jerry John Rawlings in the year 1995 and has never been renovated or drained. The keeper is said to have abandoned the place 8years ago and due to that, the toilet place is messed up with faeces, used-toilet rolls and papers. The toilet block has also become a death-trap; that is, it has cracks all over.
When accra24.com and kwahutv.com got to the place we realized that the toilet is not used by only the aged but also the children in the community.
According to a resident of the area, Madam Akwaa Rose, she said they can’t stand the pungent smell the toilet gives each and every day.
``The toilet produces bad smell and those of us living near the toilet can’t even stay in the house especially in the evening. I would have left this vicinity if I am renting this house I am living in because the smell it gives each time is too unbearable`` she lamented.
She added that, they have spoken to the two Assembly members they have had so far to do something about the situation but they keep on giving vain promises that they will come and renovate it.
``We used to disturb the immediate past Assemblyman to do something about it but he would say everything is in the pipeline so very soon they would attend to our distress call but surprisingly he left the seat without doing anything about the situation. We have also informed the incumbent Assembly man, Honourable Osei Emmanuel and he too keeps on saying the Assembly has promised to come to our aid but we haven’t heard anything from them yet`` she noted.
``We are appealing to the Government or any benevolent body or organization to come and renovate the toilet for us because who knows, the toilet might even collapse on our little children one day``
