The Central East African Railways ( Cear) hosted Kamwendo Primary School Railway Safety Club pupils on an educational visit at the company’s head office in Limbe, the country’s commercial city Blantyre on Wednesday.
The pupils learned more on the railway sector and appreciate the messages they share in their club.
The Production Coordinator of the company Joseph Mwale, explained to the pupils how the company run its affairs before they toured to the different sections of the company.
Cear Communications Officer Chisomo Mwamadi said their company benefits a lot from such educational visits by pupils.
He said their visit all the way from Mchinji means that their business is growing and that it is attracting and getting recognition by people from all levels of society including the academia.
“It was important for them to come here because this is a club that we established in November last year in Mchinji. They already had a road safety club so we just took an advantage of the already existed club to make sure that they also talk about the railway safety, vandalism and encroachment because the school is near the railway line,” he said.
He also said the pupils came to appreciate the railway sector and to understand what a locomotive, wagon is so that when they go back to their school they should be able to preach the message that they have learnt to the community in Mchinji.
Mwamadi said as Cear they find this safety club helpful because since its launch they have not experienced any rail accident around the area at Kamwendo.
Cear’s vision is to provide transportation needs of the region with efficiency and on a competitive basis and also enhance economic productivity in the region
The company also want to provide a seamless transport service to the economic needs of the region.
