Unique technology system toilets for Ga-Moretsele villagers

JANE FURSE – Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) on Friday handed over to Ga-Moretsele villagers a unique technology system VIP toilets project which took off the ground last year in November.

The environmentally friendly sanitation project comprised of 434 VIDP units for households in the village in attempt to restore the villagers’ dignity.

Keamotseng Ramaila, Sekhukhune District Municipality Mayor, said the move was in line with the district municipality’s efforts to address the 50% sanitation backlog challenge.

Ramaila said it was the responsibility of the district municipality to bring water and sanitation to the people, which he described as key to restoration of dignity to residents.

The project benefited 126 locals, four sub-contractors with regard to employment during its implementation. Furthermore, three young people from the same community were taken for training by Amalooloo, project contractor, to equip them with knowledge on how to operate the unique technology toilet system.

Ramaila pointed out that the solar energy powered toilets were unique in that when the contents were full they would be extracted in a way that the latter would be used as manure.

“The three youngsters will be employed by Amalooloo for a period of three months as they would be training people on how best to operate the system. From the period beyond the three months, the district will see a way forward,” explained Ramaila.

Ramaila said the municipality initially planned to erect 334 VIDP toilets in the area and that Amalooloo offered to build a hundred more.

Elderly Sephuli Mosehla, a beneficiary, said she was overwhelmed by the district municipality’s efforts to ensure residents’ dignity was restored through the provision of the unique technology toilet system.

Mosehla thanked the district municipality for delivering on the sanitation project as the residents had to use old dilapidated structures that threatened their safety and dignity.
