KUWAIT CITY, Jan 11: The head of the Al-Mubarakiya Development and Beautification Committee, Sheikha Amthal Al-Ahmad surprised Al-Mubarakiya Market to check on cleaning work, road works and building development, and to find out the market development progress plan. Those who affixed stickers on the walls and columns without license were fined from 100 KD to 1,000 KD.
During the tour number of violating advertisement stickers affixed to the columns and walls was counted by Sheikha, like the municipality inspectors and recorded the phone numbers of the advertisers’ owners to summon them. Violations were issued against them due to distortion of the scene by those who affixed advertisements without a license
Sheikha Amthal said that “within the framework of our work in the Al-Mubarakiya Development and Beautification Committee, which I have the honor to work with, with a group of Kuwaiti youth from various ministries of the state, we are currently launching a campaign to hold accountable violators who distort and destroy state property”, reports Al Rai. About 15 inspectors have been recruited in the Kuwait Municipality, they contact the violators and issue violations against them, ranging from 100 dinars to a thousand dinars.
One of the inspectors stated that “Sheikha Amthal Al-Ahmad gave direct orders to issue violations, as the violations that distort the market’s beautification will not be repeated by the violators of the advertisements.”
