First Lady urges Karoi community to keep the environment clean

By ZBC Reporter
THE First Lady, Amai Auxillia Mnangagwa this Friday took the national clean-up campaign to Kasimure rural service centre, Karoi to promote cleanliness.
Addressing the gathering the First Lady urged the community which relies mainly on farming and mining activities to clean and maintain the environment which sustains them.
“It is encouraging to note that a good number of you continue to support the clean-up campaign. Unified action on waste management at the household level is important, so let’s turn trash into cash, let’s remain focused on achieving a clean environment,” said Amai Mnangagwa.
Villagers and school children from Kasimure and surrounding mining areas took time to join the First Lady in cleaning up the rural service centre.
Shop owners and vendors operating at the service centre applauded Amai Mnangagwa for coming to their area.
Amai Mnangagwa also took a swipe at machete-wielding gangs terrorising various mining communities, calling for peace at all levels.
“We have heard of machete gangs but I know you my children are not part of this, let’s respect each other, I am a mother so this pains me when you go about killing each other,” she said.
Amai Mnangagwa expressed concern about the high rate of child marriages in the area, calling on traditional leaders to safeguard the rights and well-being of children in their areas.
