LACK of public toilets in Honiara city has disappointed bus drivers and conductors and it is also a contributing issue to their strike on Monday.
A spokesperson for the group, James Ado said that the Honiara City Council has issued licenses to bus owners to run their businesses but failed to provide proper toilets in the city.
“This is a long time issue for us drivers and conductors.
“The Honiara City Council is very strict with their licences ordinances but what happened to the public toilets in the capital.
“We really need the public toilets in the city to be opened as soon as possible,” Ado said.
He told this paper that they have always been accused by the council for polluting the bushes outside of Honiara when finding a place to relief themselves.
Earlier this year since coming into power, the City Mayor Alfrence Fatai said that the upgrading of the public toilets in the capital is one of the council’s priorities under his leadership.
Mr Fatai said there are other four public toilets that are incomplete and the council will work to complete it few months ago.
Meanwhile, attempts to get comments from the Mayor yesterday were unsuccessful because his mobile phone was turned off.
