Shocking footage shows stream in Kenyan capital flooded with rubbish

The Kenyan capital of Nairobi is being grievously affected by dumped rubbish accumulating in streams and waterways around the city, as shown in this clip filmed on March 20.

Filmed in the Parklands area of the city, the filmer caught sight of a river of plastic garbage clogging a stream under a park bridge. He claimed that this was a result of "negligence of paid garbage collectors":

He commented: "The trash is dumped by people who are paid to collect waste materials and bins from the neighbourhood, most people living in this area do not know that the trash is dumped there."
