KMA SUPPLIES 1,900 PORTABLE TOILETS
A TOTAL of 1,900 Container-Based Sanitation (CBS), a portable toilet, has been distributed to residences in Kumasi in the last four years.
The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), which supplied the facility, said it wanted to deepen accessibility of toilets in the city.
Over the period, Moshie Zongo, in the Manhyia North Constituency alone, received 149 of the CBS.
In all 17 Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDCEs) are competing for the ‘sumptuous’ first prize.
Dubbed ‘the Sanitation Challenge for Ghana (SC4Gh)’, the winning assembly will receive a staggering £400,000 Pounds.
The assembly that will manage its solid waste most effectively during the period will also be rewarded handsomely.
Ossei Assibey Bonsu, Senior Engineer at KMA, said the KMA has reviewed its by-laws to make it compulsory for households to own toilet facilities.
Ossei Bonsu also said Vacuum Tanker operators have been trained in business and technical areas to make them deliver.
