INSPECTION OF HOUSEHOLDS WITHOUT TOILET FACILITIES

Lusaka City Council (LCC) in conjunction with Village Water Zambia (VWZ) have commenced inspecting households without sanitary facilities in Chawama and George Compound.

The building of sanitary facilities (toilets) at each household is a requirement according to the Public Health Act Cap 295 of the Laws of Zambia under Building Regulations. The inspection which will start with Chawama and George compounds will run for 14 days and is expected to be rolled out to other compounds in the City.

Households without sanitary facilities will be cautioned and directed to build the said facilities and failure to comply will attract litigation.
