I am irked by the way people litter roads. Passengers throw empty bottles, polythene papers, sticks used for roasted meat, banana peels, etc through windows of vehicles while travelling. When you visit Rwanda, the story is different. They have a clear law against littering.

I, therefore, call upon Parliament to quickly pass a Bill on littering. Nema and the Minister of Water and Environment should educate the public about the dangers of littering.

The police should enforce this law when it is passed. Drivers must be encouraged to provide boxes where passengers can put their leftovers after eating and garbage cans should be placed in different corners of our towns where people can properly dispose of garbage.
