Disappearing Nairobi roads: Once pristine avenues now stinking dump sites

What you need to know:

  • Starehe MP Charles Njagua alias Jaguar admitted that garbage management in his constituency as well as the entire city is a big issue.
  • He accused private garbage collectors of sabotaging the system despite efforts by the NMS to improve the city's outlook.
  • Attempts to get feedback from the NMS, however, were unsuccessful as they had not responded to our questions by publishing time.

Nairobi roads are disappearing fast. And no, it's not the potholes that are eating up the city roads. It is also not the hawkers displaying their merchandise on the roadside who are forcing pedestrians to fight for remaining spaces with vehicles and motorbikes.
