THE Mayor of Victoria Falls Cllr Somveli Dhlamini led fellow Councillors in a bid to raise awareness against littering by conducting a clean-up campaign.
The campaign that served to bring consciousness towards keeping Victoria Falls clean was held at KOBUSI Supermarket and surrounding areas up to the bus terminus.
With sad developments of a Cholera outbreak in the capital Harare, the Mayor decided to join national efforts towards combating the epidemic.
“This is an initiative that is aimed at alerting the general public of the importance of keeping our town clean and showing solidarity with the nation in a fight against communicable disease such as cholera.
“This also an appreciation to our residents for entrusting us (Councillors) with mandate to steer the town ahead and foster further development initiatives,” said Dhlamini.
Kick-starting his 100-day plan Cllr Dhlamini echoed his desire to ensure that Victoria Falls maintains its status as a tourism destination of choice.
A handful of residents joined the City mothers and fathers in the noble cause towards cleaning of the town.
Meanwhile, a delegation of Kenyan conservationists visited the Local Authority for a courtesy visit as they were embarking on a 42000 kilometre walk to raise awareness on the preservation of Elephants.
The walk, which began in the East African country was aimed at raising awareness against wildlife brutality instigated by poachers.
“We left Kenya on 14 July, went through Tanzania, Zambia and we are going through Zimbabwe into South Africa then Botswana which is our final destination,” said Jim Nyamu the leader of the delegation.
His Worship Cllr Dhlamini, His Deputy Cllr Patricia Mwale and the Town Clerk Ronnie Dube received the delegation and saw them off as they continued their walk to Bulawayo.
