    Background: On Thursday (21 August), people from all walks of life took to the streets of the capital city of Chad, N'D jamena, to help clean up their city. The clean-up followed a night of torrential rainfall which did considerable damage.

    The Head of State, General Felix Malloum, toured the hardest hit areas and encouraged the workers to participate in the specially proclaimed holiday set aside for the clean ??? up.

    Government troops often pitched in and helped dig drainage ditches. Many private companies donated heavy equipment.

    In proclaiming it "Sanitation Day", General Malloum said "dirt of worrying proportions has disfigured our capital to the point that its inhabitants are threatened by various illnesses.
