Makgoba intercedes in toilet fight

From the "You Can't Make This Stuff Up" department - South Africa Division-

The Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town, Thabo Makgoba, has offered to act as a mediator in the ongoing row around unenclosed toilets in Makhaza, Khayelitsha.

Makgoba visited the area on Tuesday afternoon with the Social Justice Coalition (SJC) and spoke to residents whose toilets had been removed by City of Cape Town officials.

He also inspected some of the flimsy enclosures of the remaining toilets. Many of the enclosures, put up by the owners, were made of wooden boards and zinc sheets.

Nophumzile Mbutho, 42, said that since her toilet had been removed, she has had to revert to the bucket system. Her neighbours have an enclosed toilet, but she said they were not keen on sharing.
