Clarification from the Ministry of Public Works:
The Ministry of Public Works is taken aback that a simple clean up exercise which is long overdue has been misconstrued to the Ministry breaking down facilities or removing anything from Public spaces.
We wish to assure all Guyanese that in our effort to keep our roadways, pavements and sidewalks clear, it will be done in consultation with the people and to ensure there is no disruption of economic activity.
We invite all citizens to join in the cleanup of their neighbourhood.
Debris, builders waste, sand, and cut trees must not be allowed to encumber the roadways or the movements of pedestrians.
Thank you for your cooperation and continued support.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
