He said that apart from government’s efforts, there was the need for people to play a collective role in ensuring that the environment was safe to live in.

Makoda, who said this was his last time to monitor the monthly exercise as the Commissioner of Environment, expressed satisfaction with the contributions of the public towards compliance of the exercise.

He then lauded the press for playing a major role in message dissemination and bridging the communication gap between the people and the government.

Makoda urged in coming commissioner for environment to double his efforts in order to sustain the tempo.
