Lucky Manyisi inspects his “jurisdiction,” as he calls it. Diepsloot, section 1: its laughing school children enjoying their summer break, its makeshift shacks, its unpaved roads where pointy rocks protrude. But his focus - the core of his job and his duty to his community - are the brightly colored boxes that dot its streets: the toilets.
Lucky Manyisi称自己在视察管辖权,在普斯鲁特第一段:嬉笑的孩子们在享受暑假,简易棚户,未铺路面的路上尖锐的石块突出来。但他在这个社区的核心职责,就是这些散布在大街上五颜六色的盒子:厕所。

“As you can see there is a slight breakage that needs our attention. We don't want to see this breakage because it's wasteful of water," Lucky explained. "Then we'll make sure we clean this place, we fix the breakage, and then this thing can go back to normal.”
Lucky Manyisi解释道,“你能看到这里轻微破裂,需要加以重视。我们不想看到这样的破裂,因为会浪费水。然后我们得把这里清理干净,修好破裂的地方,让厕所恢复正常。”

In Diepsloot, one of the newest townships around Johannesburg that sprang to life after the collapse of apartheid almost 19 years ago, the government installed toilets as well as running water. But Lucky says no one ever came to maintain them. So, two years ago he rallied two dozen volunteers to take on the most humbling of jobs: fixing toilets.
19年前隔离制度被废后约翰内斯堡周围出现许多新的城镇,普斯鲁特就是其中一个,政府为这里提供了自来水,还修建了厕所。但Lucky说没有人来管理这些厕所。因此,两年前他找了二十多名志愿者来做这种最卑微的工作:修厕所。

By now, Lucky is one of only five who stuck to their mission, earning a basic compensation of 150 rand, or about $17 (US), per day of work. Lucky, who belongs to the ruling ANC party, used to be the elected secretary general for the neighborhood. He says his new job is another manifestation of his dedication to his community.
但在,Lucky是坚持一直做这件事的5个人之一,他每天工作的基本报酬是150兰特,即约17美元。Lucky为执政的非洲人国民大会成员,他以前当选过该社区的秘书长。他说自己的新工作再次表明自己效力于社区的决心。
