Adjena SHTS students hang uniforms outside to use smelly open toilet full to the brim

Students of Adjena Senior High Technical School in the Asuogyaman district of the Eastern Region have been left with no other option but to use an unbefitting open toilet full to the brim. They always have to remove their uniforms and hang them outside before mounting the risky-looking place of convenience to avoid their uniforms being filled with long-lasting pungent smell.

Photos of the latrines were shared on Facebook by a concerned user, identified as Ansah Kojo Ansah, and they have got many Ghanaians reacting.

The latrines are said to be located behind the boys’ dormitory, with its unbearable stench overwhelming the area.

“Due to the pungent smell, students remove their uniforms and hang it outside before visiting the latrine.

Snakes and other dangerous reptiles continue also threaten students who attend the facility at night,” Kojo Ansah lamented.


Many Facebook users have been expressing anger at the situation, wondering why and how a whole Senior High School was built without a toilet facility attached to it.
