In February 2014, the Dominican government declared war on the pit latrine in Dominica. In a statement made by government minister Reginald Austrie, “every single Dominican should have access to decent washroom and to stop use the rivers, beaches and the bushes”[youlist vid=”I-b78OAdnP0″ showinfo=”0″]
Apparently this seems to have added fuel to the political fire between the current government and the opposition. Minister Austrie went even as far as to state that the opposition is making fun of the war on pit latrine program.
Who would have imagine that in 2014, that pit latrine could be an issue for debate.
