Ghana Minister Hopeful That Accra Will Be Africa's Cleanest City By 2020


The Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources is hopeful that President’s Akufo Addo’s dream of making the national capital, Accra, the cleanest city in Africa by 2020 will be achieved. The ambitious plan comes in the face of worsening sanitation problems in the capital, with city authorities struggling to deal with the situation. More than a year after the announcement, many have doubted the President’s vision since nothing significant has been undertaken to rid the city of its heavy filth, except the launch of a national sanitation campaign which is yielding no result.
