South Africa – Buckets kicked as Khayelitsha waits to flush
After waiting for years for access to flushing toilets, residents of the BM Section informal settlement in Khayelitsha have finally had 280 of them installed by the city.
About 5 000 residents, who have until now been using bucket toilets, will benefit from the new flushing toilets.
The city plans to install the next 140 toilets by next March.
A resident of the area, Nokuzola Nedala, said she was very happy that she now had access to a flushing toilet.
The ward councillor for the area, Nosakhele Jelele, said the community was delighted to have the flushing toilets available to them.
