Mzuzu households defecating in bush – Survey by Malawi Red Cross

A recent baseline survey conducted by Malawi Red Cross Society through Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Project has revealed that most toilets in the peri-urban areas in Mzuzu City are not properly constructed such that they do not accord the users the needed privacy and hygiene.

The situation is said to be creating unhygienic conditions in the city as a good number of residents prefer to use any bushy place they may come by to answer the call of nature.

The survey, which was conducted in November 2014 and whose results came out in February 2015, among other things, found out that 92 percent of the households in the city had latrines but eight per cent were using bushes to relieve themselves.

The survey also found out that most tenants in Mzuzu City live in houses that do not have toilets, while others have toilets which are not well covered for privacy and in most cases not clean.

The unsanitary conditions for such toilets force the would-be users to shun them and opt for bushy places to relieve themselves.

Speaking in an interview with Mana, one of the tenants at Chithira in Mchengautuba Township, Grace Manda, said since she came to live in the house her landlord has never built a toilet.

“Since I came to live here ten years ago, there has never been a toilet and if we complain to our landlord, nothing is done. We have been using our neighbours’ toilets,” said Manda.

She further said sometimes neighbours deny them access to use their toilets, which gives them no choice but to look for a bush which provides enough privacy to relieve themselves.

During a recent workshop WASH project organized to present findings of the baseline survey conducted in the city in  November (2014), WASH Project manager, Louis Mwalwanda, said the survey showed that most landlords have kept tenants in their rented houses for years without toilets.

He also said while some households do not have toilets, others feel the toilets they have are not private enough for them to be comfortable, hence their preference to unhygienic ways of answering the call of nature.

Asked on how Malawi Red Cross is addressing such issues, WASH Programme Manager, Colex Chapendeka, said his organisation has a project targeting semi urban areas in the city of Mzuzu and Karonga on hygiene issues.

“In WASH project we are dealing with a number of issues and hygiene, which deals with households including toilets, will be addressed,” he said, stressing the importance of a toilet in averting diseases that emanate from unsanitary conditions.

Chapendeka said sensitizing and encouraging communities to have toilets is one of the important tasks WASH Project undertakes.

Apart from presenting the survey findings, the workshop participants which were drawn from health, education and Red Cross volunteers developed messages that would assist households to take heed of their surroundings and how best to construct and use their toilets.

“The project is an integrated one as it cuts across many areas, involvement of different stakeholders  is of great significance as we will not only target households but also school going children who will pass on the message to their parents,” said Chapendeka.

    For your information, Mzuzu is experiencing a fast growing number of mavenda from other regions where small businesses have saturated the market. Where do you think these brothers and sisters reside?

    A toilet in Malawi is a painful experience! You hardly wish to spend more time than is critically needed for quick relief. Sad to say that even in popular hotels, the washroom is a stab. Why do we despise toilets in Africa? This is by no means a Mzuzu issue.

    This is what it has come to. Sign of the times End of Days. There will be all kinds of open things. Soon It will be women giving birth in public. Growing up as children we never saw such violation of such a private moment. The photographer and Nyasa times is definitely a pevert a sick pyscopath who would actually take a photo of women taking a shit. I am so DISGUSTED. ULEMU UNATHA. DZIKO LIKUTHA. END OF DAYS.

  39. mboniyabwalo says:

    Is Mzuzu city for northerners aloone? hell no! so why is it that you are talking of atumbuka when Mzuzu has people from all regions in Malawi the way Blantyre and lilongwe are. The issuehere is about the findings Red Cross has found concerning pit latrines. What do you want to achieve when you encourage tribalism and regionalism? We were all createdinGod’s image and above all we are all Malawians. Be reasonable.

  40. Galu Wa Galu says:

    Ndilibe chonena. That is why the first thing in parliament were to build toilets. They knew what they were talking about. Only they were very polite to mention North.

    Most brutes spewing hate speech against northerners here have serious behavioral problems,you guys hate cause you can’t match them,google the prevalence of waterborne diseases in Malawi,studies will tell you that the least affected is the north,but since you carry empty heads,just keep on hating,we are enjoying your high levels of ignorance,ask when was the last time even a sinks case of cholera was reported here(north),literature will tell you probably 10yrs ago,but as am speaking someone somewhere down south is suffering from it,but here you are acting like this is only the problem for the northerners,complete bunch of idiots,I feel sorry for your family members,how do you manage to live with such low IQ’s people?

        #Tailor,have you googled yet? In the first place,did you understand the terminology I used about presence of cholera,or its Greek to you? And do you know the risk factors for floods? Cholera in south has not only come due to floods,no,its endemic,now google about what these terms mean,you seem to have some pathological hatred towards northerners,that sounds psychiatric,did you rub out of you psych medication?or your doctor is under treating you? Go back to you doctor to have a refill. Or have the dosage increased,you are mentally ill.

  51. Tiyanjane says:

    Red Cross has done a great job of undertaking a situation analysis before introducing their toilet provision intervention. This is indeed a huge problem in all peri-urban communities across the country. It is the effect of uncrontrolled rural to urban migration by largely unskilled people who cannot afford decent dwelling in towns. It is a problem on the outskirts of BT, ZA, LL, KU, MZ, KA, MJ. When I watched on TV a similar WASHSAN pjct at Mbayani in BT, I wondered when Mzuzu would ever have similar support. So thank you Red Cross for finally coming to my city.

    As they interact with the community, I would suggest to red cross to encourage their target households to also apply for water connection now, while NRWB is subsidizing connection fees.

  52. point of order says:

    Even though this is the case, komabe Mzuzu siyimanunkha. But Blantyre stinks to shit. Fungo la manyi town yonse. And eni ake anazolowera. Waumve ndani apa. Anyway this is sad that Malawians cannot afford even a pit latrine. ili sivuto laboma. Did you know that pit latrines are one of primitive ways of defecating? Ndifedi osauka ndi mmutu momwe

    Many idiots want to take this to their advantage to castigate their rivals,northerners,the amount of hatred is disgusting,we all know all this is connected to high educational levels and many things up north,and ask the ministry of health,cholera is history up north,haters you can’t help it,ayayaya KKK,those photos are just there as a demonstration you idiots,it does not mean thus mzuzu or north,you mean you can’t figure that? Having a natural small brain is not northeners’ fault,blame you forefathers for passing on dull genes to you and your coming generations,now stop hating on innocent people,just cause they got a higher IQ than Y’all,stop the hate plz,

    1. TAILOR says:

      BY THE WAY GONE ARE THOSE DAYS YOU USED TO THINK PEOPLE FROM EITHER SOUTH OR CENTRAL ARE NOT EDUCATED. ..TO PROVE YOU RIGHT , HAS ANYBODY FROM YOUR SO CALLED NORTH RULED THIS COUNTRY SINCE INDEPENDENCE? UNDISAMALETU !!!

      1. mmmm says:

        Just look at your arguments,so shallow,do we really consider education and intelligence as a prerequisite for ruling Malawi?in Malawi the candidate from the most populated tribe and region wins no matter how dumb they might be,chances are,I might be arguing with one of the most uninformed southener here,a typical dpp handclapper huh? Which secondary school did you go to? Go back to it and ask for a refund of your tuition,cause they didn’t help you , tought you crap.your reasoning is that of a standard 4 chap,unfortunately mist of you guys reason like this,and you are the summary of what’s wrong with this country,I mean how do you expect to develop if most of citizens reason the way you Mr Tailor does?this country is hopeless,do you really have a full brain in your head? And dpp enjoys this blind followership my Lord!! ATI “has anyone from the north ruled Malawi since independence”?,to prove that northeners are not educated hahaha,koma low IQ ndimatdndadi ndithu KKK.

        1. TAILOR says:

          @mmmm
          ARE YOU SUGGESTING THAT A PERSON WHO HAS NEVER BEEN TO SCHOOL AND FURTHER MORE NOT INTELLIGENT CAN RULE MALAWI ? KODI KUPHUNZILA SUKUDZIWA KUWERENGA NDI KULEMBA BUT SOMEONE HAS TO BE A THINK-TANK AS WELL. MY ASSESSMENT IN YOU IS THAT AM A TAILOR WHO IS EDUCATED THAN YOU
          MUKANAKALA KUTI YOU GUYS FROM THE NORTH ARE EDUCATED ENOUGH AS YOU ARE ALLEGING MUKANATUKULA KUMPHOTOKO BUT ALAS NDI KUTCHIRE NGATI UKO

            You mean you even have a CV?hahaha,but quota system is really merciful to the intellectually challenged,they now have CVs,and I wouldn’t be surprised that despite all the characteristics of a low IQ person citizen that you have shown in your writings,you are a manager of a certain institution,thus typical of Malawi under the mutharika’s,elevating the dumb so long they come from down south ayayaya,Malawi,Malawi,Malawi,sazathekaso basi,Lord have mercy,

  65. anonymous says:

    The case is worth for public presentation but I personally feel red cross as an organization should have done something about such a situation other than publicly publishing photographs of people taken during their private time. this is not acceptable. NYASA TIMES, with due respect try to conceal the identity of the pictures particularly of this nature next time. Nonetheless the case requires public attention

  66. freedom says:

    Yes this is pure northern part of Malawi.you will agree with me even if you would expand your research to the other northern districts.even chigololo amakonda patchile.more civic education required indeed.

  67. Wanga ndi yemweyo says:

    Too bad. Someone should take responsibility to ensure that homes have toilets. If it means using force, then let it be so. Otherwise we have a ticking time bomb here. Have the residents of Mzuzu, and more importantly those in positions of authority in the city, ever heard of an animal called Cholera? This animal also has a younger brother called Diarrhea. Verily, verily I say unto you, when it pleases either of these two brothers to pay you a visit, you will wish you had acted in time. And “in time” is NOW!!!
