First step to stop SA going down the toilet? End school pit latrines
Cabinet ministers flute on about the fourth industrial revolution, yet our schools are without safe, clean lavatories
My column today is about school toilets. Toilets are everything. We should all be up in arms about toilets. Sadly, we are not.

We will have arrived at that terrible point. We will be a failed state and a failed country. Right now, the drive to eradicate pit latrines and install proper toilets in schools is going nowhere.
We can’t build toilets. If this is not a sign of failure, then I don’t know what is...
