Karachi mayor suspends Mustafa Kamal as Director Garbage
KARACHI: Karachi mayor Wasim Akhtar withdrew his decision to appoint PSP chairman Syed Mustafa Kamal as Project Director Garbage.
“Syed Mustafa Kamal, Voluntary Project Director Garbage, acted beyond jurisdiction and authority that created unrest. I, therefore, place the services of Syed Mustafa Kamal, Voluntary Project Director, under suspension with immediate effect,” a new notification said.
In an unprecedented move yesterday, Wasim Akhtar designed Mustafa Kamal for the post after he expressed his “willingness to clean the city of Karachi within 90 days.”
Mustafa Kamal wasted no time in accepting the offer.
Speaking to Dunya News, Kamal had said that he will clean Karachi in 90 days if the provincial and city governments provide him machinery and their employees.
“Hang me on a chowk if I fail to do so,” he had said.
The former city mayor had said that Akhtar was responsible for the destruction of the city.
“He has properties in Pakistan and abroad. He just wants to complete his term and run away,” Kamal alleged.
Owing to the record rainfall this season, Karachi authorities have struggled to clean the city of garbage and water.
Federal Maritime Minister Ali Zaidi has also launched a separate campaign to remove garbage from the city.
The move has drawn criticism from the Sindh government after the garbage was seen being dumped on unauthorized places.
