TWO municipal councils in the Central Division have taken the lead in the fight against dengue fever.

The Nasinu Town and the Suva City councils have rallied for support from ratepayers, although they still need more such support to tackle the potentially-fatal illness.

"The Nasinu Town Council has yet to complete its clean-up in its five wards," said special administrator Mosese Kama.

"We're cleaning up campaign ward by ward.

"So far, the clean-up by youth groups have been conducted at Valelevu, Kinoya, Laucala Beach Estate, Nasole, Tuirara areas and FNU campus and its surroundings.

"These clean-ups are continuing in other areas with support from the Crime Prevention Committee, church youths and other stakeholders such as FNU students."

Mr Kama said ratepayers had shown interest in seeking out potential breeding grounds and destroying them.
