Construction of the much-needed public toilet in Fort Portal municipality in Kabarole district has started. 

Currently, the municipality lacks a public toilet, which forces visitors to use private washrooms. 

The project, which is estimated to cost Shillings 64 million, is expected to be completed by June 21, 2019.

On Tuesday, Kabarole Deputy Resident District Commissioner, Festus Bandeba launched the construction of a new public toilet along Lugard road.

  Bandeba asked the contractors, Kakooza Engineering Services Limited to ensure they do standard work within the specified period of time.

The construction works will be financed with funds from Uganda Support to Municipal Infrastructure Development –USMID project.

Herbert Mugisa, the South Division LC III chairperson, says the construction of the toilet is in response to public demand for a public toilet in the town center.  

He says they also hope to tackle the problem of poor sanitation as some people had resorted to open defecation at night.

Mugisa said that once the construction is complete, the municipal council will decide the user fees.
