Cleanup Exercise

The Nabdam District Assembly led by its District Chief Executive, Madam Agnes Anamoo undertook a clean-up exercise at the Kongo market, and surrounding communities.

The clean-up exercise which started at about 0700hours gave the community members opportunity to clean the Kongo animal market, cereals and grains markets, water ways and around the market toilet.

Madam Anamoo said sanitation was one of the areas that the assembly was tackling to ensure that the district improved in its ranking of the sanitation league table.

The DCE who spoke to the Ghana News Agency after the clean-up exercise said the raining season was almost due and indicated that the exercise was timely, adding “we are taking pragmatic steps to clean the environment to prevent the outbreak of diseases such as cholera, diarrhoea, and malaria among other diseases”.

She stated that with the collaboration of the Chief of Kongo, Nab David Dok Dong Namalteng, Queen Mother of the area, Ponaba Elizabeth Atubiga and various youth and women groups, the exercise would be sustained by carrying it out every Saturday.

She added that the exercise was being supported by the traditional leaders as well as the various sanitation workers in the district.

Madam Anamoo thanked the Chief of Kongo, Queen Mothers, various women and youth groups, Zoomlion workers and children in the community for coming out in their numbers to support the exercise and advised the children to keep such attitude when they grow up to make Kongo a desired place for visitors and among her neighbours.

Nab David Dok Dong Namalteng, said he had nursed the dream to see Kongo as a clean and serene area and pledged his support to the District Assembly to make the dream come through.

Nab Namalteng commended sanitation workers in the area for their continuous contributions to help rid the area of filth, and urged them to keep it up, indicating that the traditional authority and the people of Kongo appreciated their contributions in keeping the community neat.

She said the Kongo traditional area said it was important to rid the environment of rubbish, especially polythene bags because “it is dangerous for farming and the rearing of animals. Most often our animals died after chewing the rubbers containing food.
