“Initially, it was just a caution. Now, it’s a kind of informal education, anybody who will be catch littering around will be made to face the law, you will be sent to court” he said.
“KMA have started with enforcement of our by-laws. We also involving all the sub metros to get copies of the by-laws especially on sanitation so we will work hand in hand to achieve a common goal” Mr. Okuma Nyame said.
