City toilets need maintenance

2015-10-14 06:00

DEMOCRATIC Alliance Msunduzi caucus leader Bill Lambert called for the maintenance of the city’s public toilets saying that failing to do so will reflect badly on the city.

Lambert said that the lack of toilet maintenance has created an outcry from residents.

“This highlights the problem that we have in the city - the maintenance of our public toilets.

“I constantly get complaints from the public about our public toilets. It impacts badly on us. It’s a shitty business,” said Lambert.

Lambert said the public has also complained about the toilets at the Oval cricket ground.

He said that the taps are broken and not repairing the toilets reflect negatively on the municipality and the city.

Msunduzi mayor Chris Ndlela said the public should look after public toilets­.

“As much as we are the custodians, we go out of our way to appeal to our people because if the taps are not working … I don’t know what that suggests.

“These facilities are for the public. Ours, as an institution, is to maintain them, but the users have the responsibility of taking care of them.”
