Lilongwe, October 19, 2018:  Lilongwe- based non-governmental organisation, Our World International (OWI), plans to make sculptures from metal in order to reduce metal waste and promote tourism in the country.

OWI aims also at providing a solution to the environmental problems of waste management.

Speaking with Malawi News Agency (MANA), OWI Executive Director, Stephen Chiundira, said they will partner with individuals from various townships within Lilongwe such as Kawale, Chilinde, Areas 23, 24, Mchesi and Biwi to take the metal waste to the organisation.

Chiundira emphasized that they are not going to pay money for the metals once they are brought to them and but will agree with the sculpture makers on the price which will be paid outright.  

“The organisation is doing that as one way of managing waste in the city,” he said, adding a service will have been made to those with metal waste by making their surroundings look good and livable.

Chiundira also said the project document for Sculpture has not been submitted to Lilongwe City Council and they are yet to communicate with the Tourism Department as well.

Malawi News Agency for several tried to speak with Tourism Department and Lilongwe City Council authorities but they kept on referring this reporter to each other without giving the necessary information.
