MEC Must Prioritise Adequate Sanitation
20 November 2014.
The IFP in KwaZulu-Natal calls on the MEC of
Human Settlements, Mr Ravi Pillay to face the reality and prioritise
adequate sanitation for the citizens of KwaZulu-Natal. The party
said this in a statement as we marked the World's Toilet Day
IFP Spokesperson on Human Settlements, Joshua
Mazibuko said: "As we marked the World's Toilet Day, we are mindful
that multitudes of KwaZulu-Natal citizens are still longing for the
day when they will have access to decent toilets and sanitation.
It is very unfortunate that the government has
dismally failed to meet these basic necessities despite twenty years
of promises. We therefore call on the Human Settlements MEC, Mr Ravi
Pillay, to prioritise the eradication of the bucket system and
provision of sanitation.
"There can be no true freedom as long as our
people across the length and breadth of the Province suffer the
indignities of the bucket system and lack of proper sanitation."
