President Chakwera told the nation that all citizens are part of the new Malawi and need to make sure there is always clean surroundings within the community they live.
Chakwera then hit back on the tendency of other people who go urinating anyhow within the towns and cities which lead to pollution of air and poor sanitation.
He further said that every citizen has the responsibility to make sure that the surroundings are always clean.
President Chakwera added that if well managed wastes become useful and economic growth for the community and the nation at large.
He added that it feels pathetic to see how the markets, trading centers, towns, municipalities and cities look like due to mismanagement of wastes, saying if every citizen develops positive mindset change it will be easy to keep such places clean all the times.
