THE Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has organised a clean up exercise dubbed" All Africa Service Project" in the Kaneshie market complex.The exercise is undertaken by the church annually as part of its social responsibility in the community where it is located.
Members of the church mobbed the floor of the market, swept, dusted, cleared choked drains and gutters and educated the market women on the need to keep the market clean.
The Environmental Manager of the Kaneshie Market Complex Mrs Paola Sogbey said the church's intervention in helping keep the market clean had been helpful.
She urged other organisations to show an interest in the improvement of sanitation at the market as a large proportion of the public buy foodstuffs from the market for consumption.
A taxi driver who operates his business at the market area, Kweku Appiah Agyei commended the church for cleaning the market.
He said though the market was always very busy, it was important that attention is also directed toward keeping it clean.
Appiah-Agyei noted with concern that even though various organisations periodically engage in sanitation exercises in the market, it was evident that the traders themselves did not attach the same level of importance to cleanliness as these organisations do.
He therefore requested that adequate litter bins be placed around the market to help in reducing the heaps of rubbish in the market.
