Manual Scavengers Bill

Most of those who died were workers asphyxiated when they entered septic tanks and sewage systems to remove solid waste dumped into them. Continuous exposure to human waste and hazardous conditions takes a heavy toll on the health of the workers, resulting in premature deaths. Many drink heavily to remain unconscious of the surroundings they are working in.
