The MDC Youth Assembly on Saturday 21 July 2012 launched its Campaign for a Clean Environment under the theme Cleaning Our Communities for Sustainable Development by a Clean Up Initiative at Marlbereign shops in Harare West Constituency. The Clean up was organized by youths of ward 16 in Harare west. This campaign will spread to all business centers in Harare and beyond.

 The youths who were supported by their local councilor Lancelot Sunshine Mudavanhu and House of Assembly Member Hon Fungai Jesse Majome who donated brooms and fuel respectively, are an epitome of great and responsible future leadership of the party and nation at large. Speaking to participants on the occasion the Harare provincial Youth Assembly deputy Chairperson Stan Manyenga urged other youths from other districts to emulate this kind of initiative. “Our party is not just a party of ECELLENCY in words, but in deeds and I want to urge all district representatives here present to pluck this good leaf of responsible community youths” said Manyenga.

Unfortunately the program was then disrupted at around 1300hrs by plain cloth police from Marlbereign station. The Ward 16 youth chairperson, Vrante Jambaya was arrested by police for singing and was later released after approximately 5 hours in detention. The District Youth Assembly Secretary for Information and Publicity Respect Ndanga castigated the arrest as an unfortunate move especially after a successful community service as young people.

Together to end,building a youth with a difference.
