IN CONJUNCTION with the commemoration of the 44th anniversary of the renaming of the capital of Brunei Darussalam from Bandar Brunei to Bandar Seri Begawan, a cleaning campaign will be held at the Royal Wharf in the capital this Sunday, November 16 from 7am to 11am.
The cleaning campaign is one of the efforts made by the Ministry of Home Affairs through the Municipal Department.
It is also held in collaboration with the Brunei-Muara District Office.
According to a press release, the cleaning campaign will involve coordination with owners, tenants, Penghulu, heads of village, and village consultative council members of several areas in Bandar Seri Begawan. The campaign will be conducted at their respective areas.
The implementation of the cleaning campaign will be carried out in stages throughout the areas of Bandar Seri Begawan.
The campaign will also involve participation from members of the public and non-government organisations (NGOs).
Among the areas that will be involved include buildings at Pusat Bandar, Jalan Sultan and its surroundings, stalls at Jalan Residency, Tamu Selera stalls, part of Jalan Jame’ ‘Asr, Kiulap, Menglait Utara (Muhibah Complex buildings and its surroundings), Menglait Selatan (all buildings surrounding the area) and Kg Setia ‘A’.
Members of the public are welcomed to participate in the campaign, which is aimed at raising awareness in the public, especially those who reside in Bandar Seri Begawan, to keep Bandar Seri Begawan clean and instill in them a sense of individual responsibility towards maintaining surroundings clean, instead of not solely rely on government.
