Few months ago we had witnessed four Lories from Hyundai company been given to Temeke Municipal council for caring wastes to the dumps. The main objective was to make the city clean, attractive, and conducive for human beings to live and enjoy the environment as in other developed city’s in the world, “Congratulation”.
The Temeke municipal Director said “the lories could help to solve the problem of wastes scattered in different areas in the municipality”, it’s true that the lorries have brought the new hope about the city’s cleanliness but I want to remind the district government that they have challenges to educate the citizens.
The people in Temeke district need the environmental education so that they should comprehend that it is their responsibility to keep the environment clean, through education the people could stop littering ,also law enforcement another important tool in the process of changing people’s behavior toward self control and civilization.
Let the Government and people learn from Moshi Municipal council where through law enforcement and education they have made it! And the Town is clean compared to other towns in Tanzania. The tracks will not work effectively and efficiently without having enough supplied dust bins in all streets.
Again I say congratulation! But you have to consider on changing the people’s mind set as the great tool for environmental conservation, then other facilities like Lories, dust bins, gloves, boots, blooms, and law enforcement would operate effectively.
