Malindi road closed to clean CBD

Stakeholders monthly initiative attracted institutions and tourists

11-08-2019 by Freddie del Curatolo

The fifth monthly cleaning of an area of Malindi attracted even more citizens than the previous ones, with an unprecedented participation of national and local institutions, managers and politicians but also representatives of small associations and finally even some tourists.
The city's law enforcement officers participated by offering themselves for the safety of the exercise and the demonstration, closing the streets included in the route that, Saturday morning from 8 am, went from the roundabout (Total Petrol Station) to the Police Station through Kenyatta Road and from here to the Casino, then return to the same road and end up at the small landfill in front of the Lawfords and the deposit of flour Taifa, one of the concerns of the town. The Ministers of Health and Culture of Kilifi County, Kenya Wildlife Service, County and Regional director of NEMA, the highest environmental authority, were present and read a statement by the Minister of the Environment, who praised the initiative of the responsible citizens of Malindi. Kilifi County Commissioner, County Police Commander, Malindi OCPD also came. There were the representatives of the associations that among their aims are to make Malindi healthier, safer and cleaner and to safeguard the territory and the new generations: Progress Welfare Association Malindi, Meda, Kenya Association of Women in Tourism and others. Activities such as Jambojet, Kenya Commercial Bank, PlanHotel, Leopard Beach Point, Cozy Point Homes, Italian Supermarket, Earthland Properties, Triple B. have contributed in time and people. The furniture maker Dhanji Naran and the constructor Bilal Chaudry have contributed and made their trucks available, Kassamjee, Dj Dulla, Al Razak. Us and Malindians.com were there for the promotion and marketing.
More than two hundred people armed with gloves, rakes and bags for recycling, have walked and cleaned up the streets, but above all have still given the example of what in their own small way everyone should do in front of their activities every day. Without waiting for others to think about it, or the logic of "I pay taxes" (which is often not even true). By now we are vaccinated and we know how it works, and living among the dirt, which in the case of Malindi eventually pours into the Indian Ocean, does not benefit anyone nor will ever bring down the governments.
The good news is that these proactive activities created in concert with the institutions are working and will certainly lead to something positive to make Malindi shine again. We are very sure about that!
