Agambilla calls for corporal punishment ...

... for those who litter the streets


Accra, Sept. 7, GNA - Persons who litter the environment indiscriminately should be caned, Dr Gheysika Adombre Agambilla, Deputy Minister of Environment and Science, suggested on Wednesday. Dr Agambilla said "he was of the view that caning could be cost effective and would serve as deterrent to people who littered the streets."

He was speaking at a day's West African Sub-Regional stakeholders workshop on plastic waste management on the theme, "Plastic Waste: Threat or Opportunity" in Accra.

The workshop organised by Enterprise Works/VITA Ghana in collaboration with USAID, brought together participants from Ghana, Togo and Niger.

Dr Agambilla said plastic waste was one of the biggest challenges facing the nation and called for the strict enforcement of bye-laws and massive public education on waste management.
