KMA lauded for dealing with sanitation offenders

Movement for Development Ghana, a Non-Government Organization (NGO), has welcomed the recent decision by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) to deal ruthlessly with sanitation offenders.

The organization observed that the haphazard dumping of refuse and other bad sanitary practices still remained the most difficult challenge militating against the scenic beauty and sustainable development of the metropolis.

The residents should therefore at all times be disciplined and abide by the bye-laws of the Assembly in respect of sanitation to foster effective waste management and also reduce to the barest minimum sanitation-related diseases which were on the increase nationwide.

This was contained in a statement signed by Michael Nana Ampong, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), and issued in Kumasi.

The KMA recently announced of its resolve to intensify efforts to improve the sanitary conditions in the metropolis through sustained education campaigns and also enforce its bye-laws to the letter with the view to punishing offenders.

The decision was informed by the Assembly’s determination to check littering in the metropolis, particularly the Central Business District, was always engulfed in filth due to the recklessness of some traders and residents.

The NGO indicated that it was the duty of all to cooperate with the Assembly to foster the scenic beauty of the metropolis while ensuring the health of the people.

It also stressed the need for the Ghana Education Service to include sanitation in the curricular of basic schools and also liaise with stakeholders to form sanitation clubs to sensitize the youth on the need for them to always abide by the bye-laws for the benefit of the nation.
