The initiative is also part of the recently launched collaborative project launched with the Liberia National Police or LNP aimed at enforcing laid down health protocols in the fight against the coronavirus disease. The MCC and LNP’s joint operation basically targeted the commercial hub of Redlight, which is regarded as the biggest commercial center in the country. During the operation, the city government of Monrovia removed several huge stockpiles of garbage at different locations in Redlight and parts adjacent. Speaking to the media, Koijee pointed out that the aim of the operation is not to undermine the function of the city government of Paynesville, but rather to complement the effort of the Paynesville City Corporation (PCC).
“We want to bring relief to our people; the marketers, who sell in these markets and inhabitants of the city of Paynesville. So, again, our intervention in Paynesville should not be misinterpreted as they are fostering same agenda,” he noted. The MCC boss pointed out that the operation of the Monrovia City government is only intended to augment the efforts of PCC, as they are partners in ensuring that both cities are cleaned. He called on the Marketers to collaborate to remove the dirt, noting the activities, which started July 2, will last for two weeks. Meanwhile, President Weah also toured the site to inspect the level of work done by the MCC as the issue of improper garbage disposal has been a major concern of the city of Paynesville, specifically Redlight.
