Eleventh Malindi Clean Up: successful awareness

With health, water and phisical planning departments

09-02-2020 by Freddie del Curatolo

The eleventh consecutive monthly cleaning of Malindi was positively consumed on Saturday, February 8 with a good presence of volunteers, and finally about ten foreigners, but above all with the awareness of an important category of citizens and workers: those of the kiosks and shacks along Casuarina Road. From the so-called "Jua kali", i.e. the craftsmen who work wood or beat iron, to the owners of small shops (kibanda) who sell a bit of everything, to the local bars and restaurants that very often do not respect the rules necessary to run such an activity in Kenya.
The Malindi Green And Blue Citizens' Movement has once again brought to the streets institutions that are involved and which are always asked to actively participate and "do something more" for the town, as well as associations and groups that are distinguishing themselves to try to create added values to improve Malindi in many ways.
In the presence of the Director of the Malindi Water and Severage Company (MAWASCO), the company that supplies water to the whole County of Kilifi and is grappling with long-standing problems that are regularly reported and on which we are always pressing, and the top management of regional health care, the chairperson of Malindi Green And Blue, Kate Mwikali led about two hundred people from the Roundabout to the Sub-district Hospital. During the journey it was not only waste collection as said: the operational arm of the Maimuna Tsuma group, at the head of a service connected to the City Hall that invites to separate waste collection as a way to earn money by selling waste, with microphone and speaker on a vehicle kindly paid by the Billionaire Resort, invited all citizens to clean the spaces in front of their activities or homes. Also because very soon the new county law on garbage should be gazetted and there will also be heavy fines for those who do not respect the rules, including the withdrawal of licenses and the temporary closure of the business.
It was therefore right that this month's theme should address this issue, considering also the negative effect of non-compliance with health rules by bars, kiosks and "street" activities, not only for public health, but also for tourism. Go ahead and think about the next Clean Up, the appointment is for Saturday, March 14.
