Personnel at Masindi police station are finding it hard to answer nature’s call after their latrine stance filled up.
The latrine stances that were constructed 10 years ago are filled to the brim with maggots seen wiggling on the floor, putting the lives of the police officers at risk.
A source at Masindi police station told our reporter today that the poor sanitation at the station risks the officers to contract diseases.
The source added that currently, police officers are boarding motorcycles seeking latrines to ease themselves away from the station.
When contacted, the Masindi District Police Commander, Samuel Ondong confirmed the report adding that he had already informed the Force’s estate department and that it is yet to respond.
However, he said some Good Samaritans have offered to help the police station get new latrines and by the time of filing this story, they had started sinking the pit.
