Ntcheu District Council warns toilet operator against abuse of contract

Written by  Grace Kapatuka

Signed the warning letter: Smart Gwedemula

Ntcheu, May 11, 2018: Ntcheu District Council has issued a strong warning to a tenant who runs and manages paying toilets at the district’s main bus depot which was being used to store food stuffs by vendors.

The council’s warning comes against the background that some vendors used to store food stuffs that are sold within the bus depot in the toilet.

A video clip went viral a few days ago showing vendors using the facility to store food stuffs circulated on the social media on 1st and 2nd May, 2018, perpetrating anger among the customers who buy food stuffs from the bus depot.

The development did not only anger the customers, but also the district council officials who have since warned the operator of the toilet to use the facility for the intended purpose or risk termination of his contract.

In a letter signed by the district commissioner, Smart Gwedemula, the council has warned the tenant, a Mr. Katibula that he risks to have his contract terminated if he fails to abide by the provisions that were in the agreement signed between him and the council.

“The aim of this letter, therefore, is to strongly warn you and your workers against the use of the facility as stores for food stuffs. You are not supposed to use Ntcheu Bus Depot public toilets for any other purposes other than those stipulated in the contract agreement.

“Failure to abide by the provisions in the agreement will result in the termination of the agreement without notice,” reads part of the letter.

Gwedemula said the behaviour portrayed by the toilet operator and vendors has negative effects on the council’s image and businesses taking place in the depot.

“We strongly condemn the behaviour because it tarnishes the council’s image as well as put lives of the communities at risk,” said Gwedemula.
