    Far more people in India have access to a mobile phone than to a toilet, according to a UN study on sanitation.
    India's mobile subscribers totalled 563.73 million at the last count, enough to serve nearly half of the country's 1.2 billion population.

    But just 366 million people - around a third of the population - had access to proper sanitation in 2008, said the study published by the United Nations University, a UN think-tank.

    Ukweli unauma siku zote brah. Unicef wameanzisha kampeni ya kuelimisha umma on toilet use and good sanitation nchi nzima na statistics walizotoa, they are pretty scary.
