Plan Malawi has said Mzuzu City council is currently not doing well in implementing Peri Urban Sanitation and Hygiene (PUSH) projects since the launch of the programme in 2013 in all the cities in the country.
It has emerged that the council is yet to undertake phase two of the Nsilo Waste management project which would have bailed out people of Mchengautuba who have been complaining about the state of the current dumping site.
The matter was disclosed last week when Plan Malawi donated wheel barrows, rakes, bins and shovels to Mzuzu Young Voice.
Plan Malawi PUSH Project Manager Gomegzani Nkosi said Mzuzu city is still far in managing waste; hence needs more support from nongovernmental organisations.
Nkosi said the council’s failure to handle garbage in the city is putting the health of residents at risk.
“The donation has come at the right as the youth are currently participating in keeping the city clean,” Executive Director for Mzuzu Young Voice Gift Mulenga said
