The heap of garbage which was around the parking areas at Juba International Airport was cleared on Thursday by Juba City Council in the presence of the Mayor after a report by Eye Radio showing photos of uncollected garbage.

This came after Eye Radio on Wednesday published photos on its social media page showing hips of garbage at Juba International Airport with netizens criticizing the authorities for inaction.

On Thursday, some staff of the City Council cleaned around the Juba International Airport, a day after Eye Radio published photos of heaps of refuse around the parking areas at the airport.

Ladu Kenyi Kubari, the Director of the Garbage and Sanitation Department at City Council urged the city dwellers to stop littering the streets saying keeping the national capital clean is a collective responsibility.

According to an official, the heaps of garbage were brought to their attention and they discussed with the administration of the airport how to enhance sanitation.

Kenya cautions the residents of Juba against dumping their garbage in the middle of the roads.

He calls them to play friendly with the environment by assorting the garbage by the roadside to be collected by garbage tracks.

“This garbage is the responsibility of all of us, not only the responsibility of the government,” Ladu said on Thursday.

“People might think this is the responsibility of the government alone, no, this is our responsibility,” he said.

“I am urging the citizens to collect the garbage by the road side not in the middle of the road because we have the company tracks that will come to pick them.

“This issue of dumping rubbish in the middle of the road is not good. I urge the citizens to keep the rubbish by the roadside so that the tracks will come and take them to the dumping site”.
