Campaign events disturb the senses
Heritage Radio 101.7 FM and other media houses have observed, with grave concern, the aggravating noise emanating almost daily from the music trucks hired by political parties to spread their campaign messages throughout the land.
Then there are the unsightly flyers and posters of various candidates in the upcoming local government elections being glued to public lampposts, building walls and anywhere and everywhere there is room for them. These flyers and posters are never removed and long after the elections have come and gone, they are still there in your face.
We at Heritage Radio are asking the Environmental Management Authority (EMA) to please act, if it can, on such noisy, ugly, backward campaigning that should have been stopped years ago.
Understandably, political parties need to get their message out to their supporters and the voting public. But in this day and age and with modern technology, they need not hold on to past modes of doing so which disturb the human senses in more ways than one, and which, frankly, no longer should continue in a country seeking First World status, and in which the EMA has a major role to play in helping to get us there by protecting the environment from these forms of pollution as well.
Please act, EMA; or if you can’t, seek the legislation to do so immediately!
