ALMOST 300 Econet staff members took to the streets of Maseru for a cleanup campaign which started at the Moshoeshoe statue to the Maseru Border post on Friday.
The campaign was held in line with the company’s corporate social initiatives.
Econet public relations officer, Puleng Masoabi, said they usually carry out such activities during festive seasons but they postpone the campaign to January because the initial date clashed with another activity.
“We planned this initiative last year in November but unfortunately the day we had picked clashed with an activity by public servants so we postponed to this day,” Ms Masoabi said.
She said while there are people who are hired to clean the city, they decided to lend a hand to the municipality.
Ms Masoabi further told the Sunday Express that although the cleaning campaign was their first, but they have more in the pipeline.
“We are aware of the untidy town we work in and because working in a clean environment is important, we intend to carry out this initiative often,” she said.
She added that cleanliness starts with in individual and if one is clean the town would eventually be clean.
Ms Masoabi said they are yet to find a suitable date for the next clean up exercise but they would announce it once they have checked their calendar.
“This initiative is very important to us and we intend to do it often as we want to stay in a clean city,” Ms Masoabi said.
