Buba Ayi Sanneh: Clean environment key for malaria prevention

The community of Brikama Misera Saturday embarked on the second phase of a massive cleansing exercise as part of their drive to promote clean and healthy environment. 

Mr Sanneh who won a seat to the National Assembly on an independent ticket added: “The response of the youth of  Misera to this initiative indicates that the prospects for  Misera  are good and optimistic as they are ready to develop their community.”

Jim Danjo, Misera development committee chairman told the gathering that his committee will continue to work for the progress of the community.

He further called on the community members, chiefly the youths, to continue working hand-in-hand with the development committee to promote development.

The committee secretary general, Alieu Darboe, lauded the youth and elders of Brikama Misera for their commitment and readiness to contribute their quota towards the development of their community, noting that “it is incumbent on any responsible person to give your little to your community”.

Ansumana Ceesay of the National Environment Agency (NEA) West Coast Region office, commended the community for the initiative while assuring them of his agency’s unflinching support. 

He added: “Since the community has taken it upon itself to embark on such a good initiative twice every month, the NEA West Coast Office and the national office will partner with them in their quest to promote a healthy environment”. 

Alfusainey Sidibeh, the vice chairperson of the committee,  said the exercise was “timely and worthy”.

“It is geared towards promoting cleanliness which is paramount. I urge the community to continue cementing the already strong relationship with the committee because the committee cannot operate in the absence of the community”.

Representing the committee of elders, Ansumana Sanneh pledged that the “elders will always support the youths to promote development in the community”.
