Malindi Clean Up will restart in November

Meeting with Govt representatives and Kazi Mtaani initiative

16-10-2020 by Leni Frau

From next November in Malindi will return the monthly cleaning exercise that was interrupted in March this year due to the pandemic restrictions.
After the last presidential speech and the enlargement to 200 people of the meetings and events, the Progress Welfare Association of Malindi (PWAM) and the Malindi Green And Blue Movement, organizers of the Malindi Clean Up in concert with local and governmental authorities and other bodies and associations, have decided to resume what has been one of the best spots for the town in the past year, making the media speak positively about Malindi and also landing in Parliament.
Now that Nairobi and other counties have happily copied the same idea, the Clean Up is being supported with more attention and participation by the Government.
In this particular period, in addition to monthly cleaning and raising awareness about collection, separation of waste and recycling, unemployed young people who are involved in the Government's "Kazi Mtaani" initiative can be supported, earning a salary thanks to jobs useful to the community such as small maintenance of public areas and waste collection.
In Malindi there are 1500 employees of the "Kazi Mtaani" project, divided into 55 areas, each one organized by a supervisor.
Yesterday at a meeting in the presence of local government representatives, Freddie del Curatolo and Philip Chai from PWAM illustrated the Malindi Clean Up project to 12 area managers and showed them the possibility that temporary help such as that given to the young unemployed during the pandemic could become an added value in the future: for the town and for their fixed income over time, learning how to exploit the rubbish by selling it for recycling or using it themselves in order to re-enter the market, creating the so-called "circular economy".
The enthusiasm shown by the project supervisors, who will be talking to young people in the next few days, bodes well.
From now until 14 November, the second Saturday of the month as usual, there will be other meetings.
The chosen route goes from Silversand Beach (former Coral Kenya tennis court) to the car park of the new Malindi waterfront project (Beachfront), where a market of recycled goods will be set up.
