The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) is facilitating the construction of two sanitation courts to ease the prosecution of sanitation-related offences.
City Mayor Osei Assibey Antwi says the projects would help in implementing the Assembly’s campaign of reducing breaches of bye-laws on environmental sanitation.
“The Assembly has awarded on contract the construction of two courts in the metropolis to help speed up the adjudication of cases relating to the breach of sanitation bye-laws,” he told the media in Kumasi.
The KMA has, meanwhile, presented 15 motor bikes to the Assembly’s Sanitation and Environmental Units to support in addressing waste management challenges in the metropolis.
The motor bikes were procured from the Assembly’s £400,000 prize money awarded last year when the KMA won the ‘Sanitation for Ghana’ competition.
It was organized jointly by the Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources, Maple Consult and Ideas, as well as IRC-Ghana and DFID.
Mr. Assibey Antwi said all the necessary measures are in place to encourage people to be environmentally-conscious.
The KMA has also donated a number of items for Covid-19 prevention to five schools in the metropolis.
The items include sets of Veronica buckets, soap, hand gloves, nose masks, tissue towels and hand-washing basins.
The beneficiary schools are the Kumasi Senior High and Technical School (KSTS), Anyaano M/A Basic Cluster of Schools, Amankwatia M/A Basic School, St. Cyprian’s M/A Basic School and Bantama M/A Basic School.
