ZVISHAVANE– Former Zimbabwe Paralympian Elliot Mujaji and his walking partners will have a monument erected in Beitbridge to honour them. The monument will be commissioned by President Emmerson Mnangagwa when they complete their 945km road safety awareness walk.

Mujaji, Ben Bones and Philip Bvekwa began their 945km walk from Chirundu to Beitbridge on December 2, 2022, and are expected to finish on January 5, 2023. They are advocating for safe driving on the country’s highways.

Mujaji confirmed the matter to The Mirror and said they will hold a cleanup campaign in every town they pass through. He said the papers collected during the cleanup campaigns will be used to create a Zimbabwe bird monument which will be commissioned by President Mnangagwa.

The walk is sponsored by Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe (TSCZ), Environment Management Agency (EMA), Nyaradzo Life Assurance, Doves, Forestry Commission and Ministry of Local Government and Public Works.

 “We are doing a sponsored walk from Chirundu to Beitbridge for 35 days covering 945 km. We started our journey on December 2, 2022, and we will complete the walk on January 5, 2023 with Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe and the Forestry Commission planting fruit trees along the way.

“Clean up campaigns will also be held in every town that we are passing through and we will use the papers collected to make a Zimbabwe bird monument which will be commissioned by President Emmerson Mnangagwa in Beitbridge when we arrive,” said Mujaji.
