Fishermen and dealers sensitization at Malindi Clean Up

Malindi Green And Blue and PWAM with institutions at the beach

19-12-2020 by Leni Frau

The Malindi Green And Blue Movement, coordinated by the Progress Welfare Association of Malindi, has once again taken to the streets and the beach for the monthly clean-up of a significant area of the tourist town, which is preparing to welcome many visitors, particularly locals.
The town's clean-up days are not events, but stages in a process that began almost two years ago and was then interrupted for nine months due to the pandemic emergency.
During this period PWAM has been working with national and government institutions, bodies such as NEMA and KWS and many organisations and cooperatives involved in recycling, waste separation and raising awareness of a healthier, cleaner and more sustainable environment.
For this Clean Up, therefore, the problem of pollution of the main beach of Malindi Bay, where the fishermen gather and where the fish is sorted, was considered. The pollution from the plastic and styrofoam with which the goods are packed is visible and PWAM Chairperson Kate Mwikali's warning started from this evidence.
Awareness-raising by fishermen and the Beach Management Unit, on the other hand, aims to keep the beach clean while collecting plastic that can be sold and generate income.
In the meantime, the poor condition of the jetty was also noticed and representatives of the institutions took note.
Present at the monthly clean-up, apart from PWAM members and many sympathisers of Malindi Green And Blue, were Malindi Police Chief (SCPC) Joe Lekuta, Sergeant Abu Bocha of Kenya Wildlife Service, Beach Operators Chairman Justin Kitsao, Project Supervisors Coordinator Kazi Mtaani, George, Doris Kamuye from Malindi National Museums, Kilifi County Environment Department Manager Lennox Mwangolo, Assistant County Commissioner Omar Abdi and BMU Manager Yunus Aboud.  
Below are pictures of the day.
