  1. Sen. S. Mpofu

Hon. Sen. A. Dube

 

That this House,

 

MINDFUL that every person has the right to an environment that is not harmful to their health or well being;

FURTHER MINDFUL that every person has a Constitutional right to have the environment protected for the benefit of present and future generations, through reasonable legislative and other measures that prevent ecological degradation and pollution;

DISTURBED by the filthy garbage that has become an eye sore in all our towns and cities countrywide as a result of rampant and unabated littering which seems to have become a way of life;

CONCERNED that the littering of our urban centres has been further exacerbated by industrial waste pollution which is surely a time bomb that will explode anytime if this is not expeditiously brought under firm control;

Now, therefore, calls upon the Government to

  1. come up with secure ecologically sustainable developmental progammes;
  2. rigorously promote conservation;
  3. introduce stiff penalties for all those willy-nilly littering and polluting our environment; and
  4. secure ecologically sustainable development and use of natural resources while at the same time promoting economic and social development.
    1. Sen. Muzenda

            Hon. Sen. Chief Mtshane
