The KMA, in collaboration with the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi, the seat of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, would embark on a major clean-up exercise in the city on the day.
‘All commercial activities within the city will cease until the exercise is over. Accordingly, all shops and business centers must remain closed during the exercise,’ a release signed by Godwin Okumah Nyame, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of KMA, said.
It noted that the massive clean-up in the city formed part of activities marking Otumfuo’s 15 th Anniversary.
‘The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly would like to state that it is committed to improving the level of cleanliness in the city before, during and after the anniversary celebration.’
Mr. Okumah Nyame admonished the public to keep their environment clean and ensure personal hygiene in order to reduce diseases.
He consequently charged residents of the city to refrain from certain unacceptable behaviour and practices such as indiscriminate dumping of waste, littering, pollution of water bodies, among others.
The KMA PRO tasked traditional leaders, religious bodies, fun clubs, market women associations and residents of Kumasi to participate in the exercise.
