Upper Manyame Sub-Catchment Council has consistently been taking part in the national clean-up campaigns that were launched by His Excellency, Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa on the 5th of December 2018.
In February and March, the UMSCC held their clean-up campaigns at Queensdale Shopping Centre and Aspindale Park respectively.
Waste disposal is a major issue that has contributed greatly to pollution in rivers within the Upper Manyame Sub-Catchment.
The Council’s water quality assessment identified the Marimba River as the most polluted river within Upper Manyame Sub-Catchment.
The major pollutants found in the Marimba River include Nitrate, Total Dissolved Solids, and E. Coli. This is all owing to poor waste management.
The government of Zimbabwe aims to attain its vision of a Middle-Class Economy by 2030 and this can be achieved by sustainable waste management.
UMSCC aims to consistently play its role in ensuring the Sub-Catchment has proper waste management through the participation in national clean-up campaigns as well as awareness campaigns within the Sub-Catchment.
The season of harvesting is upon us and Agritex has hosted several field days wherein the best farmer in a ward is rewarded for having the most produce and the best quality crop.
