The people of Bambili in Tubah subdivision, North West region have started a one time monthly clean up campaign in their village.
The activity is organized by the Mayor of Tubah council, Tanjong Martin.
Supervised by quarter heads, the entire village went out recently to clean up gutters, roadsides and other important places in the village.
According to the Mayor of Tubah council, every last Thursday of the month has been set aside for the cleanup.
“We are trying to bring people back to the normal life we had before 2016.
People have abandoned their normal life of hygiene, they use gutters as dumped sides,” Mayor Tanjong Martin said adding that he is happy that the population have answered to the call by turning out in their numbers.
Talking about the sustainability of the project, he said “Is a monthly event. Every last Thursday of the month”.
Questioned about the condition of the road and dust, which has been a normal phenomenon in Bambili, Mayor Tanjong said the council is doing everything possible to see that everything comes to normal.
The population was also happy to carry on the cleanup, as Sandrine said it has been quite a while that such an activity took place in the village.
Bambili is a small town in Tubah subdivision, which hosts the University of Bamenda.
Just like the clean up campaign that has been abandoned for some years, students this locality are also exposed to other health risks like too much dust, resulting from bad roads around the university campus.
