Ministry of Tourism and Arts Permanent Secretary (PS) Liya Mutale will tomorrow, Saturday June 10, 2017 lead members of staff under her Ministry to clean Munda Wanga.

Tourism Public Relations Officer Sakabilo Kalembwe – Zacks said the Project is dubbed, Do it for Munda Wanga which means that each and every person must play a role to revive the facility, being the only Government facility that the larger Zambian populous has easy and ready access to viewing nature and wildlife.

The tourism Public Relations Officer further explained that the project is aimed at revitalizing standards in terms of the infrastructure, tourism product, and conservation education and bring it back as a sanctuary for animals needing rehabilitation.

Kalembwe noted that the Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW) has also engaged cooperating partners and the community to come on board and work together for the betterment of the local people and in a way encourage local tourism.

Kalembwe also noted that the Ministry sees reviving the facility can be a start point to encourage people to visit our national parks in Zambia and the PS was recently quoted saying that one of the other facets of the project was to have a continuous clean up by all members of staff of the ministry.

“Munda Wanga was on a 25 year lease to a private trust but was repossessed after Government terminated the lease agreement in 2014 and handed it over the then Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA)”

“This was because the trust breached several conditions of the lease. In 2016, ZAWA was transformed into Government department (DNPW) and has continued to run the affairs of the sanctuary and botanical garden. Located in Chilanga, the Botanical Garden was first opened to the public in 1956. It comprises of a wildlife sanctuary and botanical gardens and is mainly used for conservation Education” Kalembwe said

    • PF just improve the economy so people can have disposable income to spend at Munda Wanga. PF you seem not to understand how things work, hence your borrowing and begging at every corner.

  1. Stop abusing your members of staff. Where are the workers engaged by DNPW? If they are not doing their job replace them. Besides, Saturday just like Sunday is a day of worship and rest in a Christian nation.

  2. These are people vacant of innovative ideas…what good is picking up litter? These people who lead us think like Junior managers …gov’t should not be directly involved in Zoos.
    Leave those Civil Servants alone you foools!!!
