Zille responds in flush toilet furore

2013-07-03 08:39

Hi Ferial

It may be useful to get some basic facts before you offer your opinions to the world. The ANCYL in Cape Town are protesting against FLUSH TOILETS.

We are trying to move away from communal toilets by offering each family living in a shack their own portable flush toilet. A useful starting point before commenting.

And try not to be so self-referring. Frankly you are not alone in having grown up with awful toilets. I used BUCKET TOILETS throughout primary school. As for my husband, the first time he used a flush toilet of any kind was when he went to university.

We have all been where you once were (at your granny’s house), and much worse besides.

That is precisely why we are trying to offer something much better to people in informal settlements. And Cape Town is the ONLY City doing so. If you are interested in a few facts, perhaps you could take time to read my newsletter.
