On Saturday, 28th October, scores of Chibolya residents overcame the rainy weather as they joined Manja Pamodzi and its team in a cleanup programme called the Chibolya District Cleanup.
Speaking at the event, Kanyama Member of Parliament Honorable Elizabeth Phiri who graced the event as Guest of Honor commended Zambian Breweries for partnering with the Millennium Challenge Account Zambia (MCA – Z) in the community led initiative.

“I commend Zambian Breweries for being a good corporate citizen and showing how an excellent Public Private Partnership (PPP) programme can work. I would like to call upon more corporates to emulate what Zambian Breweries has done through the Manja Pamodzi initiative and come on board as partners as we strive to achieve a cleaner Zambia”, she said right before she kickstarted the programme.
She further stated that she was happy that the youths and especially the women are getting empowered through the programme.
Other activities conducted include demonstrations of what goes on at Manja Pamodzi aggregator sites such as receiving, sorting and weighing of collected recyclable material.
