Zimbabwe’s finance minister, Patrick Chinamasa, officially opened a rubbish bin in Rusape, a small town in eastern Zimbabwe.
A bin, yes, a garbage bin. Patrick Chinamasa officially opened a bin in Rusape, a small town in eastern Zimbabwe. It was an event attended by many government ministers and other public officials. After opening a new multi-sports complex in the town, the finance minister proceeded to cut the ribbon of a new bin in Rusape. Chinamasa opened three new skip bins in a bid to “help improve waste disposal and management in Rusape”.
Garbage dumping is a problem in Zimbabwe. There are some places in Zimbabwe that are only marked with garbage, at times you even get appalled. The Ministry of Health has always been implored to take action. City and municipal authorities have always been compelled to act. Citizens have always been asked to be responsible when it comes to such a topic. But well, it seems the government officials decided to take it in the literal sense.
The Town Council said in a statement that the new skip bins will help improve waste disposal and management in the town.
Zimbabweans took to twitter to troll the Minister, “Zimbabwe ‘s finance minister Patrick Chinamasa OFFICIALLY opening Bin remarara 😐 cutting ribbons and grinning like a fool..like he is commissioning something huge…a whole minister…Jesus!!”.
