LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The upper part of Malawi’s infamous interchange located at Area 18 in the capital Lilongwe will have a recreation centre, a park.
The park will be designed in such a way not to contravene with traffic when citizens have quality time at the facility.
Lilongwe City Council’s (LCC) Director of Parks, Recreation and Environment Allan Kwanjana told The Maravi Post that the facility will have both indigenous and exotic trees aim at restoring its origin state.
Kwanjana assured the nation of the quality recreation centre at the interchage.
He was speaking after Press Trust donated MK10 million towards National Forestry Season to Ministry of Forestry on Friday, December 18, 2020 at the facility.
Press Trust Executive Secretary Bibson Ngalamira assured of continual Corporate Social Responsibility towards restoring nature through tree planting exercise since ten years ago.
Forestry and Natural Resources Ministry Nancy Tembo reminded Malawians to plant more trees in their surroundings from now through February for seedlings survival.
Tembo therefore lauded Press Trust for the timely donation assuring the Trust of proper usage of the funds.
“This donation from Press trust is one of a number of donations that my Ministry has received from various institutions and well-wishers. I would like to express particular gratitude, to Press Trust for being a friend in need to my Ministry.
Allow me to encourage all Malawians, particularly the Corporate World and private organisations to emulate what Press Trust and others are doing in joining government in the fight against deforestation and forest degradation in Malawi. Your support can not come at a better time than now, when our country is being heavily impacted by disasters that emanate from environmental degradation,” urges Tembo.
President Lazarus Chakwera launched 2020/21 National Forestry Season on December 16, 2020 at Tukombo Primary School in Nkhatabay District.
