LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Malawian youths are emphasizing the need for market users across the country to own selling points while embracing wastes management for safe environment.
Youth groups under the banner Green Impact Malawi (GRIMA) in collaboration with National Youth Network on Climate Change (NYNCC) made the call during the launch of Clean-up campaign at Msungwi market, Area 25, in the capital Lilongwe on Saturday, January 16, 2021.
The grouping also donated Wastes Separation Bins to Kabwabwa Day Secondary School for wastes collections.
NYNCC National Coordinator Dominic Nyasulu observes that there was no point for the market that provides good business environment is left with wastes.
Nyasulu therefore challenged local council authorities to advance waste management by-laws.
“It does not make any sense for market users keep on littering when the same place give them good business environment. We want market users to their selling points with waste management in mind.
“We will continue with the exercise monthly until market users mind set is changed to be champions of wastes management. This will be facilitated with local authorities by-laws in place,” assures Nyasulu.
Kabwabwa ward councilor in Lilongwe City Centre constituency Flora Mwale lauded the youths for the timely intervention on waste management.
Mwale assured the youths for possible by-law formulation and enforcement on waste management.
During the clean-up exercise city council provided wastes collecting vehicle, bins.
