To effectively deal with COVID-19 pandemic, the Government has initiated several initiatives such as the National Hygiene Initiative to economically empower the youth who have been impacted negatively by the pandemic.

We want to thank the young people who have enrolled into this program for the work they have done so far to clean our neighborhoods.

We are appealing to some of our youth that are undermining the objectives of the National hygiene program by forcefully demanding money from individuals within the neighborhoods they are cleaning to refrain from such practices; Dr. Rashid Aman.

I want to remind our young people that they are the ones who should lead in this fight, but only in the right way; Dr Rashid Aman.

Businesses operating within areas where movement has been restricted are taking advantage of the situation by hiking the prices of commodities and other essential goods that they are selling, this is totally immoral and such habits should stop.
