Bikita District Environmental Officer (DEO) Norman Mhlanga urged the people of Bikita to do clean-up campaigns every day and not to wait for the specified commemoration and clean up days.
Mhlanga was speaking at the World Environment and Desertification Day celebrations held recently at Mutikizizi Primary School in Bikita’s Ward 6.
The first Friday of every month has been set aside for a national clean-up exercise where President Mnangagwa and other top government officials will lead from the front across provinces.
Mhlanga however urged people in communities to do more and make sure that they live in cleaner environments on daily basis.
“Let us not wait for the first Friday of every month to do clean up campaigns. We should make sure that the environment is clean at all times.
“The people in communities must do their clean up exercises on daily basis so that we achieve the ultimate goal of having a clean environment. We should make sure that we guard against littering at all times,” said Mhlanga.
