EDITOR – The rain season has come and it is that time when fruits such as mangoes and mazhanje are readily available.
It has become the norm that over the years the streets during this time are littered with seeds and skins of these fruits.
This is not only an eyesore but also a potential health hazard.
I would like to urge my fellow countrymen that as we enjoy these fruits we must ensure that we keep our towns clean.
Not only are we keeping our towns clean but we are preventing the spread of diseases.
We should be responsible enough not to throw the seeds and skins on pavements but dispose them in appropriate places.
The seeds on the pavements are washed away by the rains and at times you find flies all over the seeds.
Let us all play our part and keep our towns clean and not to always want to blame the City Fathers for the dirt making us sick.
We all have a role to play in curbing outbreaks of diseases such as cholera and dysentery.
Thus as we enjoy the fruits and the rain season let us not endanger our health, getting sick can be expensive and prevention is better than cure.
