Addressing congregants at Brethren in Christ Church in Bulawayo on Sunday, media and publicity manager Dave Simba appealed to citizens to help with the clean-up campaign so that the city gets ready to host the visitors.
“We are going to start a campaign where we are going to clean up Bulawayo before the beginning of these games. We request everyone interested to join this campaign and keep Bulawayo clean,” said Simba.
The clean-up is likely to target the areas where the games will be played which include Barbourfields Stadium, White City Stadium, Bulawayo City Pool, Bulawayo City Hall, Zimbabwe International Trade Fair, Bulawayo Athletics Club, Luveve Stadium and the suburbs, where the venues are situated.
