Independence Day: KMA, traders associations, drivers unions to embark on clean up exercise


The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) will embark on massive clean up exercise in the Kumasi metropolis on Saturday, February 29, 2020 ahead of Independence celebration in the Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi.

Twenty-six (26) associations including twenty-four (24) drivers unions in the metropolis are expected to join the exercise.

The 63rd Independence Anniversary would be celebrated in Kumasi in the Ashanti Regional capital.

Last year, it was celebrated in Tamale in the Northern Region for the first time in the history of the Republic.

Government announced last year that the celebration would be rotational to ensure that the every region tastes the fruit of the celebration and get to know the full history of how Ghana gained independence some 63 years ago.

KMA Environmental, Health and Sanitation Director Mr. Isaac Bassanyin in an interview with Pure FM’s Ambassador Osei Kwadwo said measures have been put in place by the assembly to improve the sanitation situation in the metropolis ahead of the Independence Day (6th March) celebration.

According to Mr. Bassanyin, 200 waste bins will be installed at some vantage points in the metropolis.

“500 waste bins have been installed already after the launch of operations to keep the city clean and green. We are adding 200 waste bins to help reduce filth in the metropolis,” he said.

Mr. Bassanyin assured that KMA’s commitment to fight against Sanitation in the metropolis is on course and yielding good results.

He therefore charged the public to change their attitude towards sanitation.
