Zesa employees during their clean-up exercise
CHIVHU – Employees of the Zimbabwe Electricity and Supply Authority (Zesa) last weekend went onto the streets for a clean-up campaign targeting some of the most littered places in the small town.
They said the exercise was meant to show that the electricity utility valued a clean environment and was also their way of contributing to the good of the community.
"We have a social responsibility to clean the environment so we had to close our offices and do this for the sake of a safer and healthier community," one of them said.
The Environmental Management Agency (EMA) also took part in the clean-up campaign and their Chivhu district environmental officer Jozywell Mawungwa applauded Zesa for a job well-done.
Chivhu is a heavily littered town with a deplorable service delivery record and the Chikomba Rural District Council (RDC); the responsible authority has dismally failed to improve things.local
