Commandant Superintendent of Police Vilisi Misiamete emphasised that her team wanted to set a good example to community members by starting in their own backyard.

MISIAMETE: “We spend most of our time at work and this exercise was not only to show our support to the national campaign, but it served as a team building exercise so that we also take ownership of the need to keep our surroundings clean at all times.”

A total of four teams picked up rubbish from the Nasova compound and surrounding areas along the Nasese neighbourhood.

MISIAMETE: “As the Honourable Prime Minister rightly said, we need to take pride in our country and keep it clean, and there’s no better place to show that we support this statement by cleaning up our home.”

“For all of us, Nasova is our home and through this exercise we are not only getting rid of the rubbish but at the same time reducing the chances of spreading communicable diseases.”

Meanwhile, Suva City Council Health Educator Taito Waqaiyavana acknowledged the continuous support of the Fiji Police Force.

WAQAIYAVANA: “Over the years, the Fiji Police Force has always supported similar clean-up campaigns and we are appreciative of this, and we know your organisation will continue to show your commitment in our efforts to keep our environment clean.”
