- The MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has proposed flogging as a means of dealing with Ghana's sanitation challenges
- He added that those who deliberately dispose off refuse at unapproved places are the part of the reasons why Ghana is filthy

The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has proposed flogging as a means of addressing unclean environments.
According to the popular lawmaker, people who litter the environment should be lashed, to serve as a deterrent to others.
Speaking on Net 2 TV, he went on to say that such an approach would ensure that Accra is kept clean.
“We are always complaining that the city is dirty but the fact is that we are undisciplined. I was once driving through Tema and I saw some men dumping refuse on the highway.
How do you expect the TMA boss or the AMA boss to clear the place”, he wondered.
He went ahead to say that refuse collectors often dump refuse garbage at the roadside, and as such if they arrested and beaten up, they would do the right thing.
The MP went ahead to say that if he ever becomes president of Ghana, such people would be beaten up so that they would change from their ways.
Some people, he said, are naturally undisciplined and are the ones who put President Akufo-Addo’s government in a bad light.
