In an effort to support the 1 Clean-up day, CISE Malawi led seven youth organizations in Mchinji district on Friday last week in a clean-up exercise. The organizations cleaned all strategic places around Mchinji Boma under the theme, ‘A clean Environment: My right, my Responsibility’. CISE Malawi's Executive Director Margaret Sapezeka told Nthanda Times that they were excited to see the initiative happening in the district saying it will help in making Mchinji Boma look Clean and attractive. “We are so excited with this initiative. We have been implementing a project here in Mchinji called ‘making Mchinji clean, green and beautiful’ for over five years, encouraging people to Clean-up their villages, business places, and sorroundings so as to promote hygiene. It is great that now the same thing is happening across the country. We need to protect our environment and as CISE we are looking forward to living in a clean and attractive Malawi,” she Sapezeka. Captured during the clean-up in Mchinji Mchinji District Commissioner, Peter Jimusole appreciated the initiative saying this will help in promoting hygiene in the district hence reducing spread of diseases that come due to lack of hygiene. “This is a very good initiative. We hope that this will help to make our town look clean and beautiful thereby reducing the spread of some diseases that come due to lack of hygiene,” said Jimusole. 1 clean-up day which is observed on second Friday every month was launched in December last year by State President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera with an aim to make the surroundings clean.
