Over 41 per cent of people in rural parts of Chadiza district have no access to sanitation.

Over 41 per cent of people in rural parts of Chadiza district have no access to sanitation and safe drinking water.
This came to light during the World Toilet Day which was commemorated yesterday.
Chadiza district commissioner, Paul Phiri attributed the sanitation problems that the district is facing to lack of trained officers, who can sensitise and educate people on the matter.
Mr. Phiri observed that most homes in villages do not have proper toilets, a situation, which poses danger to people’s health, as diseases such as diarrhoea can easily break out.
He urged school going children to say no to homes without toilets, and educate their parents on the need to have toilets.
Mr. Phiri says if well educated, pupils are good agents of change, and they can help to sensitise parents on sanitation and hygiene matters.
