In a bid to ensure cleanliness and provide an environment where his constituents are not suffering from various water-borne diseases, Member of Parliament (Lilongwe City Center) David Bisnowaty recently launched a cleaning project that will clean all main locations.
Speaking to journalists after the exercise began on Wednesday at Area 18B market, Bisnowaty said he is happy with the support that the community has rendered to the project.
“I will ensure that I fully support this exercise because it is an on-going exercise until all areas in the constituencies are well cleaned,” Bisnowaty said.
The MP also appealed to members in the area to support the exercise.
Bisnowaty complained that it is unfortunate that people pay taxes every day, yet the markets remain dirty.
“I have always asked myself, ‘Where is the money going?’ I am a Member of Parliament for this area and I don’t even know where the money that the council is generating is going,” Bisnowaty said.
Lilongwe is described as the dirtiest city out of the four districts – full of garbage in various markets.
In his remarks former Deputy Mayor of Lilongwe City Akwame Bandawe commended Bisnowaty for the exercise.
“This is great. We were not expecting this. We hope our area will be clean now,” Bandawe said .
Some Area 18 residents also commended the launch of making Lilongwe City Center garbage free.
