A lady, who tried to use one of the toilets during our reporter's visit to the town, took off her dress to prevent the bad smell from getting stuck in her dress.

“Maybe they are waiting for the facility to collapse and cause disaster before they come and sympathise with the bereaved families as we usually do in this country,” the woman, who mentioned her name as Veronica Adjei, said. Mr Kyei Baffour, another resident said, the female side has collapse to extent that, both the male and female share the other side which is manageable.
The Assembly member in the area who double as a presiding member in the Assembly Hon Frank Frimpong alias F.F, said the situation was beyond his control.

“The whole community smells and I think you can even feel it yourself (referring to this reporter),” Hon F.F lamented.

According to him, the issue has become a huge source of worry to the Assembly and the municipal Chief executive of the Assembly.

He said several appeals made in the past to the Assembly which has now get a result for the construction of the new modern toilet for the people of Bebre and it's environs.

He blamed the residents for their lukewarm attitude towards the collapse of the toilet. He said, they normally ease themselves in a polythene bag and carpet and later dumped it inside the toilet which makes it difficult to disilt it.
