The Chief Executive Officer of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly, Hon. Osei Assibey Antwi, has admitted KMA 

needs a holistic approach to tackle the issue of sanitation in the Metropolis. The Mayor of the Assembly has therefore 

called for the support of all residents in Kumasi for attitudinal change to help have a clean environment. 


Waste management in the Kumasi Metropolis has been the bane of all the Chief Executives of the KMA. Several 

strategies over the years have been adopted but due to the tonnage of waste generated, clearing and managing the 

waste has not been the best. The Mayor of the KMA, Hon. Osei Assibey Antwi says since assuming office, 

the Assembly has been able to clear seven out of the 14 mountainous heaps of refuse in the metropolis. The Central 

Business District of Adum and Kejetia where most of the waste are generated are also seeing some improvement.
