LCC challenges residents to take responsibility in improving living environment



Lilongwe City Council (LCC) has said it is the responsibility of everyone to make Lilongwe city a liveable sustainable city that everyone opts for.

Lilongwe city council CEO Dr Macloud Kadammanja said this Lilongwe on Tuesday during a press briefing of the Lilongwe City Summit, which will be held on March 15 under the theme: ‘My City My Responsibility, Together Building The City We Want’.

He said the city summit is offering an opportunity where everyone can have a say on how the city should develop on issues pertaining to service delivery, actual infrastructural development of Lilongwe City.

“The way the theme is, it is suggesting that this city summit is not a platform where we sit down and point fingers at each other because there has already been a lot of negative energy and it is high time we start harnessing the positive energy that does exist.

He said they know that various stakeholders have brilliant ideas that contribute to proper development of the city.
