President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih has launched the National Cleaning Exercise pledged in his First 100-Day Agenda.
Solih launched the nation-wide cleanup campaign this Saturday morning by grabbing a broom and cleaning the area near the Maafannu stadium. Vice President Faisal Naseem, former Maldivian President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom and a number of high-ranking government officials participated in the event.
The slogan for the campaign is ‘Saafu Raajje, Aharenge Ves Zinmaa’ which translates to ‘A Clean Maldives, My Responsibility Too’. Minister of Environment, Dr. Hussain Rasheed said the main purpose of the campaign was to make people realize waste management and cleanup is also a civic duty. And a value which must be instilled in every citizen.
