Local authorities in Mashonaland West province have agreed to come up with by-laws and training programmes on environmental management. Norton Town Council has since passed a resolution to enforce environmental by-laws while Mhondoro-Ngezi Rural District Council has partnered the Environmental Management Agency to train councillors on environmental preservation.

In a statement on Monday Norton Town secretary Mr Kizito Muhomba said they were seeking Government approval to enforce the environmental by-laws.

The by-laws would compel residents to preserve and protect the environment.
“Norton Town Council intends to apply for approval of by-laws to be cited as NTC (Environmental Management) by-laws, 2018, which the council has passed.

“The purpose of the proposed by-laws is to ensure protection of the environment, prevention of pollution and environmental degradation and to ensure there are environmental plans for management and protection of the environment,” he said.
EMA last month trained 115 community leaders including councillors from Mhondoro-Ngezi district on conservation of the environment.
