Mponda’s CDSS students showcasing a sketch discouraging sale of expired goods by traders
Competition and Fair Trading Commission uses various strategies including school clubs to promote competition and fair trading culture in communities. On 3rd December, 2019, the Commission launched a school club at Mponda’s Community Day Secondary School (CDSS) in Mangochi. The club was launched as a platform for students to share knowledge and discuss issues regarding anticompetitive and unfair trading practices existing in their communities. The students performed various activities including music, dances, drama and poetry on the subject matter.
On behalf of the Executive Director, Senior Analyst Augustine Nyirenda indicated that CFTC is committed to support the club in various ways to ensure that the club is effective both at school and the surrounding community. The staff of the school appreciated the CFTC initiative and pledged to encourage students to actively participate in the club activities.
