Blantyre City Mayor Wild Ndipo has appealed to Blantyre City residents and the public in general to take a responsibility of creating a crime free festive season.


Mayor Ndipo made the appeal during the Christmas lights switch on ceremony organised by Blantyre City Council on  21st December, 2018 at the Councils offices in Blantyre.


Ndipo said; “By observing the tips that Police always give during festival period like this one, we can manage to have a crime free festive season. Experience shows that criminals also take advantage that most people travel during this period.”


Mayor Ndipo further urged the public to make sure that they do not leave their homes unattended to at all times.


“Even criminals would want to celebrate Christmas but sadly, they celebrate using things that they have stolen from innocent people. We should not give them that chance”, Ndipo added.


Mayor Ndipo continued by reminding his fellow councilors of the Clean Premises Competition which was launched on 10th December 2018.

He therefore pleaded them to be exemplary in their respective areas  by not just throw garbage anyhow as one way of influencing the change of attitude in the society.


He said the initiative aims at bringing back Blantyre city’s lost glory as it used to be one of the cleanest cities in this part of Africa.


Ndipo further said there is need to change of the Council will clean among Blantyre residents and the people who visit the city and start observing DO NOT LITTER Policy.


“For us to achieve this aspiration of keeping Blantyre Clean and Green, we need concerted efforts from all stakeholders. We need participation of everyone. Even if we can sweep the whole city clean, collect garbage, put bins everywhere in the city, if we don’t change our attitude, we cannot achieve anything.


“My fellow residents; let us change our attitude. Let us own the city and not look at it as if it belongs to the Council. It pains to see a normal human being eating either sugarcane or bananas and just throw the peels anyhow. As a Council, we are driven by our Motto Taking the City back to the People and we would want to take the City to the people that are responsible’, said Ndipo.


Ndipo wished the residents a Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year!

“As he switched on Christmas Lights in the beautiful City of Blantyre symbolizing the beginning of Christmas celebrations”.
