Following President Thabo Mbeki's state of the nation address in February 2006, government undertook to eradicate all bucket toilets in formal areas by December 2007. The Bucket Sanitation Eradication Programme, generally known as the Bucket Eradication Programme, was consequently launched. This was arguably the most intensive, comprehensive programme ever undertaken by this government to accelerate the provision of basic sanitation to all citizens of South Africa. A bucket toilet was regarded as eradicated only when it had been replaced by an alternative sanitation option of an appropriate level.
