The scene this morning in the street near our High Commission: encourage the local authorities to step up their effort to meet the President’s @flagstaffghana promise to make the cleanest city in by 2020.
 

 The tweet had a somewhat mixed response from local residents, with some praising Mr Barnes for highlighting the issue, and others wondering why he didn't just clear it up himself.
