“And that’s something that I’m also encouraging our special administrators, as well as all the municipal councils, to upgrade their parks, as well as use some of the open spaces that have not been utilised as parks right now.”

Nalumisa adds that Nasinu Town Council is taking the lead in installing proper facilities in their parks.

He states that in the next few months, other municipalities can hopefully take the cue from Nasinu in upgrading their parks and spaces.
