WASTE management company, Clean City Africa recently fumigated schools in Manicaland province in preparation of their reopening after a two-month national lockdown.
In a social media post on his Facebook account, Clean City CEO, Lovemore Nyatsine said that the company’s focus was on assisting vulnerable communities.
“This week my heart was warmed up when our Clean City crews spend time deep in rural Manicaland fumigating schools in preparation for the return of kids to school.
“We have been working with NGO partners to ensure the school environment is safe enough for the kids to return to school. This work is not just life enhancing but could be life-saving.”
According to Nyatsine, Clean City birthed in the dusty streets of Harare’s high density suburb of Budiriro, which was one of the epicentres of the 2018 cholera outbreak.
He added that the company led the largest volunteer group in the aftermath of Cyclone Idai that comprised over 1 000 people that assisted in cleaning up the ruins of Kopa in Chimanimani.
“As a community brand our work is with the people, and for the people. We recognise that solving some of the persistent social problems such as waste in communities requires innovative and entrepreneurial solutions for sustainability.”
He also applauded his team for volunteering to work under extremely risky conditions such as cholera outbreaks, cyclones and Covid-19 pandemic.
“Today I just want to salute our teams and people like Chenai who has traversed the length and breadth of the country with our COVID sanitisation crews.”
