Yesterday, we shared this on facebook and we received many of your responses.
Such emptying services exist because each of us, especially in Karen, pours 11L of water in toilets, every time we add just 1/2kg of faeces and urine in the toilets –– this is water we don’t have much of.
We should not blame the small private and informal enterprises that provide us the emptying services. Instead, we should dry the faeces because 95% of faeces is water that can easily evaporate from faeces on site. We should also dry urine to form stable plant fertiliser. We should all partner in installing SANI SOLAR wherever we can, to avoid this unfortunate business.
People downstream will use this water therefore, Kenya roads authority must now partner with us in cleaning this water (in photo). Indeed, the authority builds good roads that are evidently catching this water for the water starved.
