Chivi villagers are working out plans for the preservation of environment following environmental coaching clinics that were conducted by the Environmental Management Agency in the district. Chivi villagers who spoke to Hevoi FM News said that they were carrying out campaigns to preserve the environment.
“We have a lot of school leavers who are destroying trees for firewood purposes so as to eke out a living during this lockdown period as they mold bricks thereby leading into environmental degradation. Our appeal is for the authorities to come up with a Master Plan geared towards environmental preservation.” said Juliet Nyasha who is one of the villagers in ward 12 which is some few kilometers away from Chivi Turn Off.
Contacted for comment, Chivi District Development Co-coordinator, Innocent Matingwina said that they have long since joined forces with the Zimbabwe Republic Police and other stakeholders for the purpose of getting rid of this bad practice.
Government through the Environmental Management Agency and the Forestry Commission has always been campaigning against any malpractice that is aimed at destroying the environment. The government has even gone further to introduce stiffer penalties to culprits.
