‘FixIt’ chief vows to move NAB against Karachi mayor

KARACHI: Social activist and ‘Fix It’ founder Alamgir Khan has vowed to approach NAB against Karachi Mayor Waseem Akhtar, Samaa reported Sunday.

He affirmed this while speaking to media persons outside Karachi Metropolitan Corporation head office.

Earlier, he led a rally of dozens of his supporters from Tibet Center to the mayor’s office.

There were two garbage picking trucks with the rally as Khan had vowed to dump city’s trash outside the KMC building to protest the mayor’s failure in cleaning the city.

However, the trucks were not offloaded.


The ‘FixIt’ campaigners staged a protest outside KMC building and chanted slogans against the mayor, carrying trash cans in their hands and holding placards.

“We will approach NAB against Waseem Akhtar. There is garbage everywhere in Karachi and the mayor has failed to deliver,” Khan spoke to reporters.

He warned that they would not end their campaign till the city is cleaned of trash.

No KMC official came to hold talks with the protestors who later dispersed peacefully.

The protest suspended the traffic on the M.A Jinnah Road for more than an hour while police remained on high alert.

Khan’s ‘Fix it’ campaign to cover unsealed manholes in Karachi gained media attention in 2016.
