City to install VIP toilets
JOHANNESBURG Water will spend R21m to install ventilated improved pit (VIP) toilets to informal settlements in the south of Johannesburg.
The target for this financial year is to install 2 290 VIP toilets in various informal settlements around the city.
Johannesburg Water has started installing 400 VIPs in Drieziek Extension 5 and will be moving to Lawley to install 500, 420 in Meriting and add ablution blocks in Zamimpilo informal settlement.
These toilets will be replacing the old chemical toilets that the residents were using, where they shared one toilet among seven households. – Shonisani Tshikalange
