Riots and president elections in Zambia

In Zambia schools and groups had to postpone tree planting activity. This was mostly because a day before the tree planting day there were riots at soweto market where some of the stalls were gutted in a blazing fire and now they have the elections results to chose our President of Zambia.

Despite this, 21st of September 3 trees were planted in Chipembi Girls secondary school, donated by Miss Earth Zambia organisers.

"That not being an excuse to stop us from planting trees but it did disturb it in a way or another. We were not able to get the trees on time but now have them and wish to plant them by the coming week. "
