Luanshya big wigs clean town

ZUMANI KATASEFA, Luanshya
THE entire Luanshya  Municipal Council management led by town clerk Moses Mwelwa recently took time off their busy schedule  to clean the civic centre and the surrounding areas as part of  celebrating this year’s 51st  independence anniversary.
It is one way of interpreting the theme for this year, which was ‘Laying the foundation for a smart Zambia, finding forgiveness, repentance, compassion and love to God’.
Public relations manager Gideon Thole said the cleaning exercise was also aimed at raising public awareness about the importance of keeping their environment clean.
Mr Thole said productivity can only thrive in a clean and healthy environment.
“As a council, we are also calling on the private sector to take a leaf from the local authority. As we celebrate the 51st independence [anniversary], we want to urge the private sector to keep their environment clean,” he said.
Mr Thole said the private sector has an obligation of keeping the environment clean, and that no business can thrive when its citizens are sick as a result of living in a dirty environment.
“It is very important for the private sector to keep their environment clean, especially that Government has also relaunched the ‘Keep Zambia clean and healthy’ campaign.”
And some residents commended the Luanshya Municipal Council management for leading by example.
“I hope this will not just end here but will be a continuous process. We need such type of leadership,” Kelvin Mwenya said.
