Health officers warn families

SOME families in the Central Division have been issued notices for failing to destroy mosquito breeding places in their compounds.

National clean-up committee member Elia Lawena said health officers had begun issuing notices following complaints from neighbours.

"We've had some reports coming through to our health officers and they have attended to complaints," Mr Lawena said.

"These are being forwarded as well to rural health officers to look in their different jurisdictions.

"The first phase of enforcement is the issuance of notices and this has been done.

"However, I won't be able to provide you with an update at the moment as I have to get back to our field officers."

Mr Lawena said last week's national clean-up campaign was successful.

"About 1000 participants took part nationwide and as a result over 30 tonnes of waste was collected and we are very much happy because it sets a bigger platform for a bigger clean-up.

"We encourage the participation of corporate bodies. We know that we are going to have more people to support the campaign and we also request NGOs, faith-based organisations and more people to come."
