Omitara toilets in the pipeline

11 January 2018 | Local News

Residents of the Omitara settlement will soon be able to make use of flushable toilets once construction of the facilities are complete. The close to 320 toilets and showers were commissioned by government and are being built by Thulu Trading Construction Company.

Omitara settlement committee secretary, Willem Haoseb, said that community members have been relieving themselves in bushes, adding that they have been fined for these transgressions.

Thus, he said, they are looking forward to being able to use decent toilets.

“We felt as though we were not part of the country. Since the settlement’s existence, to finally get this basic need of toilets, is indeed a relief,” Haoseb said.

The construction of toilets has taken longer than expected, but according to Haoseb the fact that they are getting the facilities at all, is a milestone for the community.

The toilets were supposed to be complete in August last year, but due to unforeseen circumstances, this did not pan out. However, the contractor said work would be complete by February. – Nampa
