South Sudan: Juba Clean-Up Campaign funded by British government

Report by Sudan Radio Service, Wednesday, November 25, 2009:
(Juba) - GOSS President Salva Kiir Mayardit has participated in a garbage collection exercise, the Juba Clean-Up Campaign.

The campaign involved collecting rubbish in the town with the participation of government staff, the police and the army, UN agencies, NGOs and other stakeholders.

The Speaker of the Southern Sudan Legislative Assembly, James Wani Igga, called on county commissioners to ensure that citizens in their counties are properly equipped to dispose of rubbish and litter:

[Wani Igga]: “All the commissioners - and not just the commissioner of Juba, should issue orders calling for every household to have a dustbin for garbage disposal which will be finally thrown in the main garbage collection bin.”

The one-day clean-up campaign is organized by the United Nations Environment Program, in collaboration with the Government of Southern Sudan.

The British government, which funded the operation, has allocated 3.7 million SDG in grants for waste management and environmental protection in southern Sudan.
Sudan Radio Service will be back online soon.
