The Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources has said that people who litter the streets would be arrested and prosecuted.
According to Mrs Cecilia Dapaah, there are laws that prevent people from littering but they are not applied and therefore his outfit, together with sanitation taskforce, will deal with people involved in the act.
“We will leave no stone unturned in the application of these laws and go to all length to make the law work. We have begun prosecuting sanitation offenders already but we will continue to do more and ensure that these people are dealt with drastically,” she told Accra based Okay FM, monitored by Adomonline.com.
Mrs Dapaah said though a number of bins have been distributed to prevent littering, the taskforce would be forced to effect more arrests in order to bring sanity.
She said they made some arrests recently and fined them after educating them, but since the behaviour of members of the public has not changed the application of the law is the way to go.
