Kenya will privatise the operation and maintenance (O&M) of sewer lines in five towns under a 3.4 billion Kenyan shillings ($27.32 million) World Bank programme, Business Daily newspaper reported.
Under the programme, private investors will build toilets for 140,000 households, while other firms will carry out emptying, transporting, treating, disposing, or reusing the sludge at a fee.

Homes, which are not connected to sewer lines, will pay nearly 827 shillings every month under a proposed Public-Private Partnership (PPP) programme aimed at privatising the sanitation chain in urban areas.
