Malaysia’s public toilets have been a concern among citizens and visitors for years.

Despite efforts by the government to improve the condition, many public toilets still suffer from poor maintenance and the lack of basic amenities.

Reports indicate that many public toilets are often unclean, with overflowing trash cans, clogged toilets, and unpleasant odours.

In some cases, toilet seats are broken, and there is a lack of toilet paper, soap, and running water.

The situation is particularly dire in Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS), which is one of the busiest transportation hubs in Kuala Lumpur.

Recently, Twitter user @invictusmoney uploaded a video of one of the toilets in TBS, although it was later deleted.

From the video, it can be seen the conditions make it difficult for people to use the facilities and pose a risk to public health.

Transport Minister Anthony Loke has been asked to intervene and address the issue.

Furthermore, such conditions would be a shame for Malaysia’s image as a tourist destination.

Regardless of the approach taken, urgent action is needed to ensure that public toilets in TBS are clean, safe, and accessible to everyone.

The management had been urged to work to address this issue and promote better hygiene practices for the benefit of all.

First World Facility, Third World Mentality

The cleanliness of Malaysian public toilets has been a topic of concern for many years.

Here are several reasons why some public toilets in Malaysia are often dirty or poorly maintained:

  1. Lack of proper maintenance: Public toilets require regular cleaning and maintenance to ensure they are clean, safe, and hygienic. However, some public toilets in Malaysia may not receive proper maintenance due to a lack of resources or funding.
  2. Lack of awareness and education: All public toilet users may not practise proper hygiene practices, such as flushing the toilet after use and washing hands with soap and water.
  3. Overcrowding: Public restrooms in places with high foot traffic, such as shopping malls, airports, and public transportation hubs, will attract many users. This can lead to overcrowding, making it difficult to maintain cleanliness and hygiene.
  4. Vandalism: In some cases, public toilets may be vandalized or damaged, contributing to unsanitary conditions.
