For the seventh month in a row, the responsible citizens of Malindi, gathered under the aegis of the "Malindi Green And Blue" movement coordinated by the Progress Welfare Malindi Association and supported by the Department of the Environment of the County of Kilifi and the Municipality of Malindi, meet on the streets of the town to set a good example of those who care about their habitat and want to relaunch the reputation of what for years has been the cleanest and most well-kept destination in Kenya.
So, on Saturday 12th October, the appointment with the "Malindi Clean Up" is set for 8 AM at the Roundabout, the roundabout at the entrance of Malindi (Total Petrol Station) and the group, armed with gloves, bags for waste sorting, rakes and wheelbarrows, will head along Casuarina Road to the gate of the New Court of Justice. The custom of Malindi Green And Blue is to involve every month a community: in addition to those of the neighborhood and area, civil and religious society, institutions and professionalism: in previous editions of Malindi Clean Up participated in the Police Forces, Kenya Wildlife Service, NEMA (which has become a partner in the initiative), the Ministries of Environment, Tourism and Culture and other institutions.
This month it will be the turn of the judiciary, the Prisons Services, the Kenya Police, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, the Office of the Attorney General, the Law Society of Kenya, other Court Users as well as the larger Malindi Community. The motto of this month is: “Stakeholders in the Administration of Justice & Malindi Community for rehabilitation of the environment & pettty offenders through garbage collection.”
This is because the initiative is not only an exercise in cleaning and waste collection aimed at recycling, but is part of a project to raise awareness of citizens and institutions to get to have in Malindi the separate collection and recycling center of plastic, glass and paper, also creating job opportunities and income for the local population.
In addition to cleaning up and making the tourist destination healthier and more attractive.
The next meeting is at 8 AM in the Roundabout.
For those who don't feel like walking, the final meeting is around 9.30 AM
