Area 47 on a Clean The Market campaign. The initiative is under the “Nothing for Us Without Us” banner of Malawi Congress Party.

We managed to remove 19 tones of trash on Sunday and Wednesday.
The MCP team on the ground has vowed to continue working and not wait for the government because they believe that A better, clean and prosperous Area 47 is possible if they take development issues into their hands.
