Ghana: Zoomlion to Rid Kumasi of Filth

ZOOMLION GHANA Limited, the leading waste management company in Ghana, has vowed to ensure that Kumasi is rid of filth, ahead of the December polls and this year's Christmas festivities.

The company says it will work assiduously, in spite of the daunting challenges, to restore Kumasi back to its position as one of the cleanest cities in the country.

The Ashanti Regional Manager of Zoomlion, Stephen Gyekye-Darko, who made the promise during an interview with newsmen after its staff embarked on one of their regular clean up exercises, said the vision was in line with the President's policy statement which declared a crusade on filth for the next three months.

He said, Zoomlion, in conjunction with its subsidiary partners like Zoom Alliance would continue to equip and support other waste management companies and also collaborate with city authorities in realizing the dream of a clean Kumasi, ahead of the two major events this year.

Mr. Gyekye-Darko noted that under the new programme of the company, it will undertake the exercise in four districts every week and intends to involve major stakeholders at the local levels including Chiefs, assembly members and other influential personalities to facilitate the programme.

He, therefore, announced that a major stakeholder meeting was set to be held this week to fashion out plans that would help ensure the smooth operation of the campaign to rid the city off filth.

The Zoomlion regional manager therefore urged the public to get involved in the exercise to ensure its success.
