1 April, 3 June, 5 August, 7 October and 2 December have been designated as environmental clean-up days in Accra as part of efforts by the local authorities to improve conditions in the capital. All residents are expected to take part in the clean-up exercise, which will be held from 05.00 to 12.00. Vehicles will not be allowed to circulate during these hours and shops and retail outlets are to remain closed. Owners of unauthorised kiosks have also been instructed to dismantle them before the start of the Easter festivities. In a related move, the Accra Metropolitan Assembly has announced a clamp-down on stray animals; as of 1 April, owners of dogs, sheep, goats and horses found roaming freely will be liable to prosecution and have their animals confiscated.
