The amended Summary Offences Act 2018 prohibits the selling, buying, chewing and spitting of betel nut at public places in the city.

During the State of Emergency lockdown, the city gained its former glory. The streets looked cleaner.

However, when the parts of the SoE restrictions were lifted, the ugly head of uncleanliness resurfaced with large quantity of betel nut being sold.

Thus, the Municipal Government of the City,  NCDC will start enforcing the law against selling, buying, chewing and spitting of betel nut at public place including bus stops, traffic lights, road junctions and, on public and private motor vehicles using public roads in the city.

As of publication of this notice to the public, we will start enforcement on some parts of the city. Mostly, other parts of the city will see awareness for a week before full enforcement as of Monday 22nd, June 2020.

Under the amendment, offenders are fined an amount not exceeding K10,000 and/or a jail term not exceeding three years.

However, it was enforced this morning at Boroko which is looking so clean with footpatroling of NCD Police and our own officers from NCDC Urban Safety unit.
