Mahali hambapo zinatupwa ni karibu namahali ambapo watu wanaishi nahiyo ni kuatarisha afha yako.

Effects of a Dirty Environment

In many parts of Nairobi, there is a lot of trash that brings bad effects such as diseases like malaria.

When you visit different parts of the city, you will see many people living near trash, which is not right.

There is stagnant sewage, toilets that are visibly dirty, and a very bad smell. Garbage smells the worse of all. People live near where the trash is dumped and this causes harm to their health. Some hotels are constructed in places near dumpsites, which causes diseases. This happens near river banks with dirty water.

Rivers in Nairobi are usually used as dumpsites. When you look at these rivers, you see the very dirty water. The trash is just thrown in the river.

If you look at the different rivers of Nairobi, you will see trash that is harmful to human health. Frequent outbreaks of common diseases are due to this trash. Diseases like malaria, cholera and others are all caused by this trash.

Many people live in places that are unfit for human habitation. The sources of rivers passing through Nairobi are very clean but when they approach the city, they become dirty because a lot trash is dumped into them. In addition, the drainage system is channeled towards the rivers, adding to the dirtiness of the water.
