Liberia: Paint Your Houses or Else - 'General' Broh Warns

As Christmas draws nearer, the tough talking Monrovia acting City Mayor, Madam Mary T. Broh, has cautiously warned residents of Monrovia and its environs paint their houses in order to avoid a fine of US$150. Madam Broh, who is popularly referred to as the "General", vowed to institute the city ordinances without fear or favor.

Amongst other things, the city ordinances call for the cleanliness of the city, business centers, and work places.

She sounded the caveat in Monrovia over the weekend when she spoke in an interview with reporters.

The "General" furthered that authorities and staff of the Monrovia City Corporation (MCC) would carry out a vigorous campaign in order to ensure that business centers and dwelling places, including government ministries and agencies within the capital are clean.

The Monrovia acting city mayor, who strongly underscored the need for the cleanliness of the city and its environs, encouraged Liberians and foreign residents in the country to always keep their surroundings clean. Among other things, she added that the city would be properly clean if citizens promote and practice good sanitation.
