South Africa: school toilets are reviewed

An inspection is been carried out in all school says the South African government. Its goal is to eliminate the usage of pit latrines after the death of two school children who had fallen into such toilets.

President Cyril Ramaphosa wants to eradicate the pit toilets within the next few months.

A court in Limpopo, on Monday instructed a school to eliminate all its pit toilets however it refused to give financial assistance to the parents of the boy who lost his life by drowning in a toilet four years ago.

According to the Human Right groups the use of pit latrines is a violation of a child’s right to dignity and hence they have made a request to the government to urgently build safe facilities.
