The Environment Management Agency (EMA) which recently held training programmes for people in Masvingo District Ward 6 and 33 has donated bicycles to chiefs who assisted in the implementation of the training.
EMA also donated beehives, quill birds (zvihuta) and poultry feed to 180 participants drawn from the two wards. The participants were trained in four areas namely: biogas energy, bee keeping, wetland management and conservation farming.
The bicycles were given to Chief Zimuto, Headman Gurajena and Headman Nemarundo.
The donation was made at Mushandike College where the Minister of Environment, Water and Climate, Oppah Muchinguri Kashiri was the guest of honour.
The donation of 12 beehives was done in a bid to avoid deforestation and to ensure water conservation in trees. The 300 quill birds (zvihuta) were given together with poultry feed so that people will not kill animals for meat. Four groups that are Chidzikwe 1 and 2 in ward 6 and 33, Hawckdale in ward 6, King Mine in ward 6 and 33 were given zvihuta.
In addition to these, Forestry Commission also donated 400 mangoe, oranges and avocadoes tree seedling.
Speaking at the occasion Muchinguri said that every ward should have a fireguard and the community should work together in preventing pollution and ecological degradation.
"We need to sustainably manage our resources and prevent staying dangerously by avoiding veld fires, cutting trees, water pollution and river bank cultivation," said Muchinguri.
Steady Kangata, the Environmental Education and Publicity Manager emphasised the idea of supporting and educating the community.
"It is important to train and support the community in taking care of our environment," said Kangata.
EMA Manager for Masvingo, Robson Mavondo said that the donation was made in a bid to reduce dependence on natural resources and eradication of poverty.news
