Landlords with no household toilets to be prosecuted

The Ashaiman Municipal Assembly (ASHMA) has indicated that it will soon drag before court property owners who have failed to provide toilet facilities in their homes.

The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the Assembly, Mr. Ibrahim Baidoo, made this known during a function to remind homeowners in the municipality of the need to take advantage of the bio-fill toilet facility for homes within the municipality.

According to him, the problem of open defecation, especially at night, must cease in order to improve sanitation in the area.
“That must stop. That must stop now. You better have a decent toilet in your homes. You, as individuals, cannot go out during the night to ease yourselves. We have to stop. The Assembly will begin the prosecution of these landlords very, very soon,”he said.

As part of efforts to improve sanitation in the municipality, the Assembly, earlier this year introduced a package for the construction of some 2000 bio-fill toilet facilities in households within the area.

Households who sign up for the installation of the bio-fill toilets on their compounds would have to pay back within a year to the Assembly which pre-financed the project.

The Ashaiman head however believes the use of the facility has been slow and has therefore called on landlords and landladies who have no toilets in their homes to apply for the bio-fill toilets.

“We call on all landlords and ladies to patronise this facility since the Assembly will have no choice but apply sanctions to houses that do not have toilets as per the national building regulation and the Act 462 that governs the Assembly,” he warned.

“We have managed, as an Assembly, to go out of the box, we’ve travelled as far as The Netherlands. We’ve managed to get a subsidy and we are helping every home in the municipality for you to own decent toilets rather than relying on the public toilets,” he added.
