Filth in the city’s nooks and crannies had no place to hide when a combined team of members of the Rotary Club of Accra Ring Road Central and Zoomlion stormed the streets.

It was quite a sight to behold, when top executives, middle management and even children ditched their responsibilities at home to become city cleaners for a few hours in the day.

For many participating, that was a surreal moment to appreciate the work of these people and also feel a sense of fulfilment of being the inspiration.

Over 50 participants, comprising rotary members led by the President of the Accra Ring Road Club, Dr Dennis Addo, scavenged the ring road stretch, digging into gutters, grasses and corners to remove rubbish and properly dispose them off into rotary bins firmly secured on each side of the Ring Road.

The exercise was done in partnership with the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) under the theme, ‘keeping Accra City Clean.’

The campaign was set rolling after a memorandum of understanding was signed between AMA and Rotary Club of Accra Ring Road Central in October 2018.

The move to complement President Nana Akufo-Addo’s vision of making Accra the cleanest city in Africa, was completed with a distribution of about 80 litterbins around circle and ring road in January this year.
