IS NEWSPAPER SAFE TO USE ?

MBABABE - Is using newspapers as toilet paper the proper way of cleaning one's behind after releiving himself ?

What else are children and other people in the rural areas using for wiping their buttocks when they are responding to the call of nature besides stones? These are some of the questions Health Minister Benedict Xaba should have responses for in about two weeks. He is expected to bring a report to the House of Assembly with answers to these questions.

These questions were posed by Kubuta MP Sivumelwano Nxumalo when he motivated a motion calling on Xaba to take drastic measures to prevent a national outbreak of cholera in Swaziland. Nxumalo said the Ministry should make every effort to prevent a wide spread of the disease by ensuring that people subscribed to proper sanitation etiquette.

Xaba said he would comply with the motion and, perhaps in jest, urged the Speaker to also encourage the fellow legislators to always wash their hands after going to the toilet during Parliament sittings.
