THE Ilemela District authority has reiterated the need for Mwanza residents to continue maintaining a clean environment in order to combat cholera that continues to threaten the community in many areas.
Speaking during the official opening of a two day monitoring committee meeting at Buzuruga health centre yesterday, the Ilemela District Commissioner, Mr Manju Msabya said that residents in Mwanza have to be proactive to combat cholera.
“Cholera has been recorded in Mwanza so people must change and take steps to control it, otherwise things will move from bad to worse and lives might be lost,” said Mr Msabya.
He said that there is no district in Mwanza that is safe, so the best thing to be done is to control it to the maximum through efforts by all the residents in the region. He insisted that residents should concentrate on cleaning efforts of their environment, which in turn will restore the reputation of the region which for several years has been leading in terms of cleanliness.
