Mayor of Blantyre City Councillor Noel Chalamanda, wh joined the sweeping exercise together with Councillors Louis Ngalande of Misesa Ward and Nellie Nseula of Limbe Central Ward, said the students’ action was a true commitment to making the city clean.

Said Chalamanda: “This is the time when as residents of Blantyre, we should claim the city back. There is no need to point fingers on who is responsible for the damage we have caused to the environment, what we need is to act on the problem.”

He said the sweeping exercise should not be the last but the beginning of what he called a noble cause as the students have shown that even though they are busy with their studies, they are also concerned with the environment they are living in.

Patience Silungwe, the students’ representative, said they thought that as communicators, it was their duty to go out and tell people on the importance of living in a healthy environment hence the sweeping exercise.

“Our class decided to take part in the Keep Blantyre Clean and Green Campaign by engaging ourselves in a sweeping exercise which has happened today and we would like to advocate on how important cleaning the environment is,” said Silungwe.

Councillor Ngalande said the exercise will send a good signal to the public on why they should take care of the city.

“The gesture today fits well with the Keep Blantyre Clean and Green Initiative which the Mayor is advocating together with all of us as members of the Council. What you have done today is history since this is the first time in my Ward,” said Ngalande.

The Mayor of Blantyre is very exemplary to the youngsters.He should also come to Lilongwe and teach the LL mayor how to hold a broom.Lilongwe is full of rubbish with no bins yet they are very proud to call it a city with non working dirty toilets all over.Malawi has totally lost the standards.
