A cleaning exercise is being done around along the bank of Agok seasonal stream near Aniet market. Public and Environmental Health Observer, Dau Ayuel says the exercise aims at preventing water pollution.

On their side, traders expressed their happiness and urged others to stop dumping waste at random. They added that Health Administration and Chamber of Commerce should dig a pit for dumping and burning garbage.

Recently, health authorities in Agok conducted similar cleaning campaign. The site being cleaned is also littered with plastic bottles and polythene bags ruining its view.
