“Today, we have managed to plant 3, 000 trees of different species, and these trees play a significant role in our society by producing oxygen and also as a source of water,” said Zamba.

Dzalanyama is the source of many rivers that accommodate a high population of Lilongwe District.

“So, this will help Lilongwe Water Board (LWB) to be able to supply adequate water to residents of Lilongwe,” she added.

Zamba also appealed to all the youth present at the occasion, including students, to take tree planting as a hobby to restore the lost forests.

‘’My plea to these youth is that they must take tree-planting as a hobby in order to recover the beautiful forests we had.

“As you are aware, any malpractices in our forests will lead to climate change affecting this generation. So, it is also their role as the youth to plant trees in schools or homes,’’ stated.
