A local pastor here is adding his voice to those calling for the better upkeep of the country’s public cemetery.

Pastor Griffin Daniel said he supports fully, statements by the Mayor of Roseau Cecil Joseph, to put measures in place to ensure that the public cemetery is kept clean.

Daniel said over the past few years the public cemetery has been unclean.

“I believe that something must be put in place for the long-term period to ensure that the cemetery is properly up kept. The public cemetery has been quite dirty for some time and I am calling on the pastors who use the cemetery to come together to ensure that it remains clean…” he said.

The pastor is also calling for the creation of an organization to control the cleanliness of the public cemetery.
