At least 6 000 indigenous trees which the company has bought are expected to be planted along the river.

STL chief executive officer Roger Gardner expressed hope that the trees will be of impact to in terms of beauty and prevention of soil erosion.

Said Gardner; “I want the people who are surrounding this river to take care of the trees and that they will be of great use in the near future.”

On his part, the deputy Mayor said the coming together of Sunbird and the Council with a beautiful conspiracy to reclaim Mudi river by planting indigenous trees was a remarkable achievement.

This is not the first time Sunbird has partnered with the Council in tree planting as last year, 6 000 trees were also planted at Nyambadwe hill.

The company is also participating in Blantyre City beautification exercise through the adoption of Chichiri and Kameza roundabouts.
