All shops in Accra remained closed on Tuesday, July 2, as part of the Homowo cleanup exercise led by the Ga Traditional Council and Ga Mantse, King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II. The cleanup aimed to improve environmental cleanliness across the city.

Businesses and shops in designated areas were required to shut down during the exercise. Leaders of various groups and associations were called to actively participate in the cleanup efforts.

The one-month campaign, themed “Let’s Keep Accra Clean,” was designed to promote good waste management practices, improve environmental hygiene, and foster a sense of community responsibility towards maintaining a clean environment.

The initiative was a collaborative effort between the Ga Traditional Council and other government agencies, targeting all 25 local government authorities within the Greater Accra Region.

Activities included household registration for organized waste collection services, education on effective waste management techniques, and strict enforcement of bylaws to ensure compliance with waste management regulations.

Ga Mantse emphasized that the initiative was non-political and that environmental cleanliness concerns all residents, regardless of political affiliation. He urged residents to follow sanitation bylaws, clean their frontages, gutters, and premises, and called for the reintroduction of communal labour and increased public education on sanitation.

A special task force was deployed to arrest those who did not comply with the sanitation bylaws, ensuring that offenders faced legal consequences.
