"Today, as part of this celebration, we are going to be planting some trees. And there is a saying that those who plant trees today are not the ones who sit under the shade that the tree produces. A lot of the big trees you see here were planted long before most of you were born and that is the beauty of planting a seed and looking after it. It means that you are taking care of future generations,” she stated.
“When you talk of interconnectedness, then it means that you have a choice, because you realise that you don’t live in isolation. Each one of us is connected to the other. Each one of us is connected to the environment, and if our environment is sick, we will be sick as well. So, young children, this is important for you."
"This tree planting exercise is the beginning of what we are going to be doing on a continuous basis in this constituency, which is to care for our environment to make sure that we are leaving it better than we came to meet it.”
