Sunday November 19th, 2017: A national sanitation report shows Kitui County is leading in sanitary practices in Kenya.
The report specifies that a good percentage of families in the county use toilets for human waste disposal in their areas of residence.
This is an improvement from position 9 in 2014 to this year’s position one and a grand score of 89 percent.
The County Government established Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) who educate the population on the need for using toilets at homes.
This has seen a far-reaching rise in the number of families that embraced the idea fully. Following in the list are Siaya, Nakuru, Kiambu, Busia, Kisii and Machakos counties respectively.
This comes at a time when the county marks the World Toilet Day on Sunday, November 19 at a ceremony scheduled to be held at Mbitini in Kiui Rural Sub-county.
Kitui Deputy Governor Dr. Wathe Nzau will preside over the forum whose main aim is to encourage the people to uphold heathy practices and curb diseases emerging from poor disposal of human waste.
