The Minister of State in the vice president's office (Environment) Ms Batilda Burian yesterday urged Tanzanians to observe cleanliness in their homesteads as a preventive measure against diseases.

She made the appeal when addressing Ubungo residents during commemoration of the World Environment Day, held at the Ubungo commuter bus terminal.

She said observing cleanness in residential areas should not wait for government interventions.

"You should try and maintain cleanliness in the city and stop waiting for the government to clean the streets for you' working together with the government will help keeping our city clean," she said.

She gave an example of Mwanza City, which has been declared, as the cleanest city in the country noting that Dar es Salaam was also capable of doing that.
