Midlands State University staff and students across all its campuses spent two hours on Friday the 1st of March 2019, from 8 am to 10 am picking up litter and cleaning their immediate and surrounding environments.
The cleaning efforts were part of the national clean-up campaign, which has seen the nation declaring zero tolerance to litter and setting aside the first Friday of every month as a national clean-up day.
In Gweru, students and staff participated in two clean-up campaigns one held at the University’s Main Campus, while the other was held from Senga Shopping Centre to Nehosho Suburb. The latter campaign brought together various stakeholders and was graced by the Minister of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing Cde July Moyo, the Minister of State for Midlands Province, Honorable Larry Mavhima and City of Gweru Mayor, Councillor Josiah Makombe among others.
In Zvishavane, the clean-up campaign saw students and staff cleaning the Zvishavane Campus as well as the nearby Machipisa Business Centre. The clean-up was led by the Campus Director, Professor A. Viriri and the Deputy Registrar Mr N Shava.
