Ezekiel Guti University Clean Up Harare

Zimbabwe Ezekiel Guti University (ZEGU) recently conducted a clean up exercise in the central business district of Harare to raise awareness against littering as well as marketing the institution.

Speaking to 263Chat on the sidelines of the clean-up along First Street, ZEGU Community Development Officer Fungai Mazorodze said the clean-up was the university’s way of raising awareness against littering as well as giving back to the community.

“We are holding this clean-up campaign because firstly we are a Christian University and we understand the relationship between cleanliness and Godliness. A look at our Bindura campus will reflect on why we are so particular about living in a clean environment.

“We are doing this in Harare because it is the face of the nation, so we are adding a glimpse to the face of the nation.

“We are also doing this because we want people especially in Harare to know who we are, so it is a way of marketing our University. We believe that in the way of marketing, we cannot just come and tell people about us without adding value to the people whom we are targeting,” said Mazorodze.

ZEGU’s gesture comes at a time when the City of Harare is struggling to contain littering problems in the city.
