Accra gets tough on sanitation

1 house 1 toilet project launched in Accra.

The Accra city council has told residents to improve the capital's poor sanitary situation by desisting from the practice of open defecation.
The head of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), Mohammed Adjei Sowah, warned that health inspectors will "crack the whip very hard" against offenders.
Sowah was addressing the media at the recent launch of 1 house, 1 toilet, a project designed to supply households in the central Ablekuma district with toilet facilities. The project's eventual aim is to provide toilets to 12,000 households across Accra.
