KUWAIT CITY, Nov 10: The Deputy Director General for Capital and Jahra Governorates Affairs at Kuwait Municipality Eng. Faisal Sadiq revealed a study by the municipality to increase the number of public toilets in Souk Mubarakiya due to its need to serve its visitors, reports Al-Rai daily. He revealed that he had visited the market earlier this week along with some members of the Municipal Council to obtain information on the level of cleanliness, and to study the possibility of increasing the number of toilets in the market.
Eng. Sadiq indicated that there is a shortage of toilets, especially since three of them will be entering the stage of radical maintenance, due to which they are currently not ready for use and were hence closed by the municipality.
He affirmed that differences of opinion develop the work, especially since the members questioned the reason for closing the toilets. On the sidelines of the tour carried out by the Municipal Council’s Fact-Finding and Facilities Committee at Souq Mubarakiya, a member of the Municipal Council Abdul Salam Al-Randi said, “The committee carried out a visit in coordination with the concerned authorities to study the services within Souk Mubarakiya. The toilets for the visitors in the market were inspected. The outcome of the tour was a shock, as these facilities have been closed for a year and a half, and others for four years”. He stressed the need to pay attention to the market, as it represents the heritage and history of the country.
Meanwhile, another member of the Municipal Council Ahmed Al-Enezi affirmed that the objective behind the visit to Souk Al-Mubarakiya was to increase the number of toilets, especially since there is a shortage of toilets in the market, affirming that this matter will be worked on. He called for the need to preserve the market but also impose necessary sanctions against companies. Director of the Department of Hygiene and Road Works in Capital Municipality Mishal Al-Azmi revealed that the level of cleanliness in Souk Mubarakiya is “satisfactory” as highlighted by the members of the Municipal Council, as well as the visitors to the market.
