It is a relief for city dwellers as all public toilets will now be accessible to everyone without having to pay a fee.

Most public toilets in the city have been charging residents Ksh 10 per every toilet or bathroom visit in the public amenities.

On Thursday, the Nairobi Metropolitan Services issued a notice, saying that it has taken over the management of the toilets that were under private entities.

NMS said that the public toilets are meant to be free, and the National Youth Service (NYS) will now take charge of the facilities after a brief closure.

The toilets were plastered with a notice saying: ‘“Kindly note all public toilets have been closed due to security reasons. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused. Ordered by NMS.”

A number of toilets have also been running a sanitary towel business in the ladies’ section.

With sanitary towel dispensers mounted on the wall, you have to pay Ksh 10 to get a piece when caught up in a period emergency.

There are about 18 toilets within the CBD which are run by private entities subcontracted by the NMS.
