RESIDENTS of Bobani Village in Gunguluza, Uitenhage, will soon no longer have to relieve themselves in nearby bushes as the construction of hundreds of toilets is currently underway.

The project has been met with resistance from some residents. There will be 846 communal toilets, but there are over 3 000 households.
