A deputy Municipal Coordinating director of Sissala East Municipal Assembly has disclosed he had to suspend a very important call from Accra to shout on a person who was about to defecate in a nearby bush distant away from his house in Tumu not do so.
Mr. Dennis Bayuo on RadfordFM Masie expressed that if the person had come to tell him he was hard-pressed and under pressure, he would have allowed them use his toilet but will not watch on for them to practice open defecation around his residential area.
The situation of open defection in the municipality is more deliberate as being practiced where there are toilet facilities available. Whilst discussing the structure of Municipal Assembly with a former Assembly Member Mr. Godfred Kanton they noted that a little variation exist between a district assembly and a municipal assembly in terms of it being a ten kilometer distance naming, expansion of infrastructural development and adjustment of common fund allocation in addition to other benefits the Sissala East municipality stands to enjoy after its upgrade. There will be the need for to change their behavior and attitude henceforth.
However, open defecation and littering of the environment with plastic waste Dennis Bayuo said are a major sanitation challenges the Municipal Assembly is confronted with. “Resources that could be used to provide important development needs are channeled to address these issues even though it is preventable, the behavior of people contributes much he noted. He also said there are plans for expansion on roads and other projects in the municipality that will demand demolition of structures and therefore people should begin preparing for the exercise before it takes them by surprise.
