Hoima district headquarters lack sanitary facilities putting the lives of the district staff at risk.

The two flash toilets, have for the past two years never been in use after they were blocked due to lack of water. This has forced the more than 50 district staff to seek for alternatives to answer nature's call. 

Francis Kazini the LC5 Councilor for Kizirafumbi Sub County says that the lack of sanitary facilities forces them to walk 2km away from the district headquarters to attend to nature's call in Hoima town.

Kazini says it is embarrassing when visitors find it difficult to use the facilities since they are out of use.

//Cue in: "How can the district…

Cue out…….Something must,"//

Vincent Alpha Opio, the LC5 Councillor for Kabwoya Sub County, says it is unfortunate that the district authorities have failed to repair the toilets. He says that they risk being closed due to lack of sanitary facilities.

//CUE in …it is unfortunate.....

//Cue out: "…It is good that.//.

Kirungi Kadir the Hoima district LC5 Chairman refutes allegations that the flash toilets had spent long without being repaired. He however says plumbers at the district headquarters are doing everything possible to have the toilets repaired in two weeks time.

//CUE in….No there is....

//CUE out…the plumbers.//.

Some of the district staff are now forced to use the pit latrines outside the headquarters.

However they are always dirty, lack water and soap.
