On October 7, 2017, Manja Pamodzi successfully held their 7th road show in Chunga in the project’s second round of roadshows.
The event which started at 09:00 captured the attention of scores of Chunga residents through exciting dance, music and theatrical performances which were used to sensitize the people about good waste management practices and the need to join the project as collectors.
Selected Chunga residents stand in readiness for the sorting competition, a major feature of the Manja Pamodzi roadshows.
Area Ward Councillor Patrick Salubusa who came out to support the event thanked Zambian Breweries and Millennium Challenge for the initiative and called on more partners to join the project.
“Manja Pamodzi has made our work very easy; by the time we are organizing for a cleanup programme, our people already have information about waste management”, he said in an interview with the Radio Christian Voice conducted at the roadshow site.
He further said that through the project alone, the city is now looking very clean as most post-consumer waste is collected through the value chain and is used to empower youths and women.
Meanwhile, eight project participants received varying amounts in prizes for their collections during the month of September. Amongst those awarded include Mutendere aggregator Zyoli Ng’andu who received a prize on behalf of his employees for having the cleanest aggregator site during the month of September.

Mr. Zyoli who could not hide his joy thanked Manja Pamodzi for the prize and encouraged more people to join the project as collectors or partners.
In response to his call, over 30 signees registered with the project team as collectors during the road show.
