Bishop  of Zomba Diocese Desmond Tambala: Clean-up

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.

Osati lack of money iyayi. The whole moral compass is wrong. Why can`t you start from the basics? Teach kids from kindergarten, primary schools, secondary schools and even those in tertiary institutions to be responsible in how they dispose of litter. Criminalize littering with appropriate penalties. Mudyere pali ponse a mayor?


Ya! That’s the way to go. Osamangotukwana boma. Every sector including religions need servant and transformative leadership. Kumachotsa kaye chitsotso chili mmaso mwako usanaloze chala m’diso la mzako. Keep it up!

It’s a pity, you mean you don’t have money? Where are all these daily market collections? Chimene chakula ndikuba basi, many services are suffering because of stealing
