On The Occasion Of Eid-Ul-Fitr Garbage Embarrasses Muslims
Since MASADA Waste Management Company stopped working actively at night as a result of the emergence of the monthly cleaning, Kissy Road has not only becoming one of the filthiest zones in the eastern part of Freetown but the innumerable piles of garbage embarrassed Muslim worshippers in their gowns to their various places of worship.
One of the Sheikh’s, Alhaji Umar Sesay observed that the monthly cleaning exercise would never be enough to clean Kissy Road which is the main route to the central Freetown if MASADA is not allowed to take centre stage in the exercise and prayed never to smell again that strong odor he inhaled when he was approaching the Basharia Mosque at Bombay to perform the Eudul-Fitri prayer.
Haja Kadie Fullah said she is a member of the ruling Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) but recommended that regular cleaning readopted because she claimed that consistent cleaning is better than to clean once a month.
She lauded the past Government because according to her, the previous administration of the All Peoples Congress (APC) succeeded to make Kissy Road a clean highway every morning for the fact that the Ernest Bai Koroma supervision was spending huge amount of cash to support cleaning activities of MASADA.
Another ardent Muslim, Sheikh Alhaji Marrah said he was surprised to see Kissy Road gutters still filled with debris after the Government of President Bio has instituted the monthly cleaning. He therefore called for the Government to review the cleaning method by bringing back MASADA to full action or else we are going from back to worst as a nation in terms of enhancing clean environment.
As we speak, the Kissy Road axis still overcomes with garbage. In fact that is the reason why many road users are blaming Government for not acting wisely to bring the issue of filth to an end. The lethargic attitude of people responsible to manage filth has not only embarrassing citizens but it also gives the country bad signal to tourists who visited us.
