Cleanliness they say is next to Godliness, but when people prefer to live in dirty and in sanitary conditions; their quest to reach God becomes questionable

Broken toilet with bucket for waste paper disposed.

This is a typical situation of the daily life style of most dwellers around Lido Street in Kumba.  Most of the toilet conditions are very bad. Toilets which we know are supposed to be the cleanest places in our homes are not the priorities of Lido Street dwellers. Their Toilets are very full, broken or extremely dirty. The toilet surroundings have become the areas for waste or refuge disposal “Dirty Place”. Very filthy water passes around the houses in this street, even areas where food is being prepared is not kept clean.

As a result of this unsanitary nature of the toilets, those who considered themselves clean prefer to use small buckets “Titi Pale” to pass out urine or excreta.  This is also becoming a bad practice because, most of those who use these buckets don’t even border to empty their waste in the toilet but throw them on the “dirty place” (usually created by them). This is very detrimental to the health condition of those who reside around that environment.

It is for this reason that the Kumba 1 Council’s Hygiene and Sanitation Unit are doing everything possible to curb this kind of practice in the municipality. Agents are sent into the Quarters to do a proper check of the toilets. Toilets that are not kept in Good conditions are either broken down, or the owners are asked to rebuild, depending on the gravity of the toilet situation. This is also done to eradicate cholera which is fast gaining grounds in the South West Region of Cameroon.
