Luntha Television has expressed commitment to complementing national efforts in mitigating effects of climate change and has since joined Lilongwe City Council (LCC) in implementing the ‘Making Lilongwe City Green Campaign’.

On Tuesday, the Catholic-based television station planted 406 trees along the Lilongwe River. The initiative was supported by the Norwegian Church Aid and Danish Church Aid (NCA-DCA).

Luntha Television Deputy Director Father Nobert Kashija said they were inspired by Pope Francis encyclical to remind everyone to care for the creation that makes people’s lives possible.

“This exercise is a fulfilment of the institutions long desire to care for the mother earth. We are very excited to partner with LCC in the campaign to make the city green again,” said Kashija.

NCA-DCA Head of Programmes Paul Mmanjamwada commended the station for participating in the tree planting exercise, which aims to bring back the lost vegetation and protecting the country form the occurrences of natural disasters.

In his remarks, LCC Environmental Officer Cydrick Mneneri Tambala said the decision by Luntha Television to mainstream tree-planting exercise will go a long way in wooing viewers and residents to join the campaign.

Tambala declared the station as an official partner in the tree-planting exercise.

Teachers and students at Likuni Girls Secondary School also participated in the tree-planting exercise.
