Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Crys­ta­bel Chikayi Chronicle Reporter

THE Zim­babwe Na­tional Cricket team has em­barked on a Keep Bulawayo Clean Cam­paign, pick­ing lit­ter as they wait to play their fi­nal matches in the Tri­an­gu­lar se­ries in the city.

The team, es­corted by the po­lice, yes­ter­day picked lit­ter from the Cor­ner of Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo Street along Fifth Av­enue up to Ge­orge Silundika Street.

The team’s cap­tain, Graeme Cre­mer, said the clean-up cam­paign is a player’s ini­tia­tive that is part of the side’s Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­gramme.

He said they have cho­sen to do the clean-up cam­paign in Bulawayo since they will be in the city for a week or two get­ting ready for their fi­nal matches which started on 19 Novem­ber and will be end­ing on 27 Novem­ber.

“We are con­duct­ing the clean-up cam­paign as a way of giv­ing back to so­ci­ety. This is our se­cond act of giv­ing back to the so­ci­ety this year.

“Months back we raised funds and do­nated food to Matthew Rusike Chil­dren’s Home in Ep­worth. We are look­ing for­ward to un­der­take more Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity Ini­tia­tives in dif­fer­ent towns in Zim­babwe,” said Cre­mer.

Na­tional Cricket Team Pub­lic Re­la­tions Man­ager, Mr Dar­ling­ton Ma­jonga, said the clean-up cam­paign is a ges­ture meant to ap­pre­ci­ate the sup­port from the pub­lic.

“The Na­tional team ini­ti­ated the clean-up as a way of ap­pre­ci­at­ing the com­mu­nity’ sup­port. We got help with the clean­ing equip­ment from com­pa­nies like Print Serve and Nem­chem,” said Mr Ma­jonga — @cchikayi.
