The Zambian government has introduced a national cleaning day to be held once a month.
The exercise is part of the “Keep Zambia Clean, Green and Healthy Campaign”, which President Edgar Lungu re-launched last month in a bid to raise cleanness levels in the southern African country.
Local Government Minister Vincent Mwale, whose ministry is overseeing the exercise, said it would kick off this Saturday with the president leading the cleaning.
He told journalists:
“It is now a requirement as government policy that all citizens participate in the cleaning of their surroundings every last Saturday of the month.”
He said only Seventh Day Adventists would be exempted from the exercise on a Saturday to allow them to worship, but they would be expected to get tidying the following day.
