Arrest people who litter the streets -Nana Botwe

By GNA

The Swedruhene, Nana Kobina

Botwe II, has called for the arrest and prosecution of people, who litter

the streets to ensure environmental cleanliness in the Agona West

Municipality.
He said the Swedruman Council would support the enforcement of

sanitation bye-laws by the Assembly.
Nana Botwe, who is also the Acting President of the Nyakrom

Traditional Council, made the call during clean up exercise in the

municipality.
The chief was joined by Mr Ben Mensah, Agona West Municipal

Chief Executive (MCE) and heads of department of the Assembly at

Agona Swedru for the clean up exercise.
He tasked the Municipal Assembly to provide garbage bins at

vantage points of the Swedru Municipality to avoid indiscriminate

littering of the town.
The Swedruhene said the arrest and subsequent prosecution of such

offenders would serve as a warning and deterrent to those who

intentionally litter the streets.
The clean-up exercise was in response to a directive by President

John Evans Atta Mills to all Assemblies to place emphasis on

sanitation, during his first 100 days in office.
Nana Botwe appealed to the officials of the Environmental Health

Officers of the Assembly to intensify their operations to help improve

sanitation in the area.
He suggested that, recalcitrant environmental offenders be arraigned

before the courts to avert the outbreak of an epidemic.

Nana Botwe cautioned the people to change their attitudes towards

sanitation, saying; “it is the collective responsibility of all to look out for

people who throw rubbish about.”
Mr Mensah said the clean-up exercise would not be a “nine-day

wonder” so as to ensure that the area is clean at all times.

He said the Assembly, in collaboration with the Swedruman Council

would set aside a day in every month for the clean-up exercise in the

Agona Swedru.
