The Municipal Chief Executive for Ketu South, Maxwell Lugudor, has led residents in the Municipality in a clean-up exercise.

The exercise was aimed at making the Municipality the cleanest in the country.

The exercise, which was held on Saturday, 27th November 2021, had a street sweeper truck that started the cleaning from the main Aflao border.

According to Mr. Lugudor, it is very necessary to have residents committed to making sure that their environments are always clean.
