Cape Town - Residents of Kosovo informal settlement in Philippi on Monday destroyed container toilets provided in the area, the City of Cape Town said.

“The city denounces the actions of destroying 14 toilets,” said mayoral committee member for utility services, Ernest Sonnenberg.

The city had advised the contractor involved to open a case against the vandals.

The toilets were among 500 installed in the area since February, he said.

“The toilets are portable 100-litre containers surrounded by a concrete structure.”

Sonnenberg said the containers were removed and cleaned on a regular basis and then returned.
