Kak Advise: residents have four months to comply

Gaborone residents who are not connected to the city’s sewerage system by end of December this year will have to come up with ingenious ways of emptying their pit latrines and sewage tanks. This is because Water Utilities Corporation (WUC), which is responsible for both portable and waste water systems has issued a kak notice, returnable on December 31.

“The WUC urges all households in these areas to connect to the network and discontinue the use of pit latrines and septic tanks. We are giving those households grace periods up to the December 2014 to have connected to the network,” the corporation’s spokesperson Matida Mmpi says in press release. She goes on to say that as of January 1, 2015, WUC will no longer offer emptying services.

The WUC ‘s decisions means thousands of low income and largely unemployed residents of Gaborone’s SHAA areas of Broadhurst, Extension 14, Bontleng, White City and Old Naledi will have to pop out more money to hire private companies to empty their toilets and septic tanks.
