SECRETARY to the Cabinet Roland Msiska has urged Zambians to up the ‘Keep Zambia Clean campaign that was recently relaunched.
Dr Msiska said Government has observed that most people have slackened in keeping the country clean.
“Keeping Zambia clean does not require a lot of money. It is a problem of attitude. We have observed that people are now throwing litter in drainages and this is a rainy season, the garbage will clog the drainages and water will start damaging roads,” Dr Msiska said at a press briefing yesterday.
He said if cleanliness is not observed, there will be diseases and government will spend huge sums of money on treatment of the affected people.
Dr Msiska said cleanliness is a common good and everyone must participate in keeping Zambia clean.
“This Saturday, my staff and I will be cleaning our surroundings,” he said.
