By ZBC Reporter
HARARE City Council has been urged to introduce stiffer by-laws in the country as part of efforts to control littering.
The call was made this Friday by Minister of Defence and War Veterans Affairs, Honourable Oppah Muchinguri – Kashiri as she led the national cleanup campaign at Copa Cabana bus terminus, in Harare where they were welcomed by a sorry sight of empty bottles of bronclear, which is one of the drugs being abused by youths.
Minister Muchinguriri Kashiri spoke on the need for uniformed forces to join hands in curbing drug abuse.
Kashiri took a swipe at the Harare City Council authorities for failing to effectively enforce laws aimed at making Harare clean.
Also not to be outdone in the cleanup exercise were Zanu PF staff members, who cleaned around the party headquarters.
Leading the campaign, Zanu PF National Secretary for Women Affairs, Mable Chinomona said the party will continue rallying behind the President’s cleanup initiative.
“Our message today to the nation is that let’s continue to rally behind our President in the cleanup exercise,” she said.
The Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) took the exercise to Lake Chivero, while the National Social Security Association (NSSA) partnered Harare Central Hospital Staff to also clean the environment, amid commitment towards ensuring a clean and healthy environment.
