Blantyre City Council has with immediate effect banned holding of wedding, engagement and bridal shower ceremonies in residential areas.
This has been disclosed in a Press Statement released on Thursday signed by BCC Public Relations Officer (PRO) Anthony Kasunda.
According to the statement, the move is aimed at curbing noise pollution in residential areas.
“The Council has the legal mandate to take action against those providing venues to such events which may include prosecution,” said Kasunda.
He therefore reminded the general public that the City belongs to all of us and therefore it is important to maintain peace and avoid disturbing others
Meanwhile Blantyre residents have expressed mixed reactions on the development as others have welcomed the idea while others have trashed it.
