According to him, open defecation is a habit formation that people had acquire, despite they having toilet in their homes, but would prefer to go for free range at the beach.
He further added in an interview that the environmental health unity of the Assembly has taken up the issue and working hand in hand with the Assembly men on sanitation related issues, “it is catching up but it is very slow”.
“When we get one or two people and they are sent to court or fined that would be a deterrent to others.”
“We can do better, the beaches are clean they are relatively okay if you go to most part of the town it is clean as well”, he said.
