South African Government to eradicate pit toilets by 2026 - Equal Education

The Education Support Forum spoke to Leanne Jansen-Thomas of Equal Education who outlined Minister Motshekga’s Norms and Standards delinquency.

Most recently, Minister Motshekga’s disregard for the Norms and Standards for School Infrastructure is evident in the disastrous “plan” to fix Limpopo school toilets, that she and Limpopo Education MEC Ishmael Kgetjepe drafted as ordered by the Polokwane High Court, in the Komape Court Case. In the “plan” Motshekga and Kgetjepe say that it is only possible to begin to fix Limpopo school toilets in 2026, a decade after the Norms and Standards for School Infrastructure stipulates that plain pit latrines ought to have been eradicated! The “plan” makes no attempt to create emergency interim measures, such as cordoning off dangerous spaces, or providing portable toilets. Our response to the “plan”, filed with the High Court, can be found here.

Earlier this month, the Constitutional Court dismissed Minister Motshekga’s application for leave to appeal against our school infrastructure judgment victory – as news reports revealed that a 5-year-old survived a near drowning in a pit latrine at Daligongo Primary in the Eastern Cape. Minister Motshekga and the nine Education MECs were not only appealing the escape clause aspect of the judgment, but also fighting against having to make school infrastructure plans and progress reports publicly available within a reasonable time.

No more excuses, fix our toilets now!

Today we demand an end to Minister Motshekga’s unfathomable and inexcusable refusal to recognise the criticalness of the Norms and Standards for School Infrastructure in realising dignified and safe school toilets for children from poor and working class communities. Talk is cheap.
