Polytechnic’s Faculty of Built Environment students in partnership with Blantyre City Council on Thursday (June 9, 2016) conducted a sweeping exercise at Blantyre Market.
Guest of Honour at the event, Councillor Gertrude Chirambo, stressed the need for all stake holders to take an active part in keeping the City clean and green.
“Everyone must play a role in ensuring that our City is looking clean and beautiful,” said Chirambo.
“This initiative is in line with the City Council’s Keep Blantyre City Clean and Green initiative,” she said.
Dean of the Faculty of Built Environment Charles Chiocha commended the Council for supporting the students.
“We want to be the pacesetters in ensuring that our streets and residential areas are of the highest standards,” said Chiocha.
The sweeping exercise was one the series of events which were organized as part of the final year students’ symposium. The other event was a panel discussion which touched on a few hot topics like the Red star campaign and the Lands Bill.
