In other words, in the 23rd year of the the 21st Century, there should no longer be any Pit Latrine, in any School worth a name.

But that is Uganda under our "Unconstitutional "Problem of Africa", Gen Kassim Tibuhaburwa; where one is born, go to school, fall sick/ill, and/or die in a pit-latrine at own risk.

Otherwise, It is the saddest thing for someone die in a pit latrine like a rat. May Caption Rumanzi's soul be at peace.
