Since handing over the presidency to the late Bingu wa Mutharika, former president Bakili Muluzi has not enjoyed airtime at the state broadcaster except for wrong reasons but now under President Joyce Banda the station gave Muluzi a rare interview.
In the interview aired on news bulletin, Muluzi who is going o South Africa on Saturday for routine medical treatment on his back problem and would proceed to Lesotho to head Commonwealth election observer mission, urged Malawians to stop littering in the streets and public places.
He was worried that people have a habit of throwing garbage including food waste on the streets.
“When I am going to town from my house, I see people eating sugarcane and throwing the rubbish anywhere. I am asking Malawians to take care of their surrounding and even their homes,” said the former Malawi leader.
Muluzi said as much as City Council is responsible for cleaning the city, the people should also strive to keep it clean as they cannot clean.
He has since advised authorities to sensitize people on keeping Malawi a litter free country.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
