Zomba Diocese Bishop George Tambala on Tuesday took off time for prayers and focused on health and environmental issues in his city as he led young catholic workers in a clean-up campaign.
Bishop Tambala said improper waste of management is causing serious environmental issues and health hazards to residents, saying it is high time people including officials took action against this than mere talk.
He said it was pity that people were dumping scratched airtime cards anywhere anyhow and discarded food, saying this was polluting the old capital of Malawi.
The bishop said it was the responsibility of everyone to rise up against this in order to bring back the city to its old glory.
Deputy mayor of the city Davie Maunde said it was true that the city was being polluted and attributed this to lack of money to carry out enforcement by laws.
Maunde also said in some instances, it was because the city lack enforcing by laws but pledged the city would not just sit back would act with available resources and laws.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
