It looks like the war against sanitation problems is on course as new photos show how a lady was handed an instant punishment for littering around.
A lady according to reports threw an empty sachet water rubber on one of the principal streets of Accra.
A police officer saw her in the act and asked her to come out of her car and collect her rubbish with her bare hands and clean the surrounding.
Ministry Of Sanitation and Water Resources sharing the photos on Facebook wrote : “The clarion call by the Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources, Hon Cecilia Abena Dapaah on all to play a key role in the sanitation campaign to rid the nation of filth is on.
This morning the Personal security of the Hon. Minister politely requested a lady to pick rubbish she had dumped on the street “.
