Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) has planted over 5,000 trees during an exercise at all its stations countrywide.
MRA Commissioner General Raphael Kamoto said they are mandated to assess, collect and account tax revenue, but as a responsible Corporate Citizen, the taxmen are now also very interested in caring for the general society and environment as well.
“The society around us contributes the human resource that we are proud to have in MRA. The importance of trees cannot be overemphasized. Trees give us life. Trees give us cleaner air. Trees protect the soil and the environment. Trees give us the fruits that we all enjoy. Each one of us should continue planting trees in our homes and villages. Let us make Malawi green once again,” he said.
Kamoto said MRA’s stations like Muloza were heavily affected by the floods.
“Environmental degradation concerns everyone. The effects of the floods were worse because trees that once used to protect the surroundings have now been cut down,” Kamoto said.
He said MRA will be looking after the trees to ensure their maturity and plant over 10,000 every year.
MRA is working with community leaders in its effort to protect Malawi’s evergreen environment from the harmful effects of deforestation.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
