Mayor of Accra, Elizabeth Kwatsoe Tawiah Sackey on Monday paid a working visit to Gamashie, a suburb of Accra to interact with residents on the sanitation situation in the community ahead of this year’s Homowo celebrations.
The Mayor who was accompanied by officials from the Assembly and some Assembly Members used the occasion to sensitise the residents on the need to keep their surroundings and drains clean at all times to prevent the outbreak of communicable diseases as well as flooding.
She stressed on #BorlaInDrainsMustStopNow and called on women in the community to play a pivotal role in maintaining cleanliness and hygiene in their communities.
