Accra can never be the cleanest city; floods make it obvious – Zanetor Rawlings

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Klottey Korle Constituency, Zanetor Rawlings is convinced that the Akufo-Addo government won’t be able to achieve its dream of making Accra the cleanest city in Africa by 2020.

According to her, rains and its accompanying flooding, make it obvious that the president’s ambitious vision was nothing but a facade.

Speaking on CiTi FM's Eyewitness News, she noted that the almost three-year-old agenda smacks of failure as the city continues to struggle to manage waste.

“We are in our third year since that promise was made. Accra is nowhere near becoming the cleanest city in West Africa, let alone on the continent.

Not from where I stand and not at this point in time…I don’t see the necessary things in place for it to happen. You are still seeing the rubbish everywhere. The amount of rubbish left behind when the water receded after the flooding is quite phenomenal,” she noted.

Zanetor Rawlings accused government of paying lip service to the vision and chided them for the lack of will power to see the agenda through.
