Business Executive and Columnist, Vincent Letsa Kobla Djokoto, a member of the Tenge-Dzokoto Royal Family of Anyako, has said traditional royal households can also help galvanise community support for weekly clean-up exercises.

In an article published on Accra Free Press, Vincent Djokoto wrote:

Individuals who demonstrate a noticeable zeal for cleanliness in their communities should be awarded gifts and cash prizes. This could be sponsored by corporations or, perhaps, such persons could even receive exemptions on utility bills from government.

Fourteen regions and districts across the country have begun clean up and disinfection exercises similar to those conducted in the Greater Accra and Ashanti regions during the partial lockdown.

The exercise which started yesterday (May 13, 2020), will end on the 15th of May 2020.

The exercise, supported by the Ghana Armed Forces and other security services, is to improve sanitation in the country following the coronavirus pandemic and to reduce flooding especially as the rainy season begins.

Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Dapaah announced this when the Ministry donated 30 community waste containers for onward distribution to the various MMDCE’s in Accra.
