Kalilani, who is contesting for a parliamentary seat on a Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) ticket in the constituency, said this on Wednesday during a clean-up exercise at Nsungwi market in Area 25, Lilongwe.

He  said that last year during the rainy season many people were affected by cholera and other waterborne diseases that put their lives in danger.

“As a shadow member of parliament to stand under DPP ticket during this coming tripartite election on May 21, 2019 for City Centre Constituency, I will ensure that all garbage in various market places are removed to avoid spreading of illnesses,” Kalilani said.

He added that he would be working together with Councillors, market leaders and community members among others to ensure that their societies are safe and clean through introduction of friendly waste management initiatives.

The Shadow MP requested Lilongwe City Council and Non-Governmental Organizations among others to work together with the government in fighting against waterborne diseases and provide good sanitary facilities and also improve healthcare services.

Area 25 Nsungwi Market Chairperson, Yusufu Sitala said as market leader he would discuss with fellow business colleagues at the market to maintain hygiene by removing all waste materials every two weeks.

He commended the aspiring MP for taking on board hygiene issues which he said was a big challenge affecting the health of some community members including business people.

“Most of the people in our areas do not have pit latrines and fail to clean their surroundings due to lack of civic education, but now we will try to follow hygiene practices as demonstrated to us today,” Sitala added.

Peter Makiyi who roasts fresh maize (Dowe) at the market pointed out the bad smell from waste materials affected their business because it keeps away customers.

“Many customers avoided buying our commodities because our surroundings were poor  and full  of flies that transmit diseases such as cholera and dysentery just to mention a few,” he observed.

I highly commend the gesture by the aspirant.However it is short of telling the authorities that the whole social system in Malawi is in shambles.imagine aspirants or members of parliament are now buying books,desks constructing class rooms,buying ambulances,etc.what is the govt doing with the monies that are voted for social activities. What is the Executive doing.Now politicians are doing the job of the Executive.something is not adding up.we need to reverse this trend. politicians or communities should come in to support and not give them as their responsibility.

I totally agree with your contribution…the system is broken down to the extent that politicians are taking advantage of the rotten system.

But this one didn’t buy anything. He just initiated what the business people should go in our markets in terms of hygiene.
