Africa’s dirtiest cities
Fifteen of the 25 dirtiest cities in the world are in Africa. The top four are:

ANTANANARIVO in Madagascar
Public toilets in Antananarivo are dirty and smelly. The city’s trenches are filled with litter and dirty water.

Addis Ababa in Ethiopia
There are too many street poppers, heaps of garbage and vast slums which are also extremely grimy.

Brazzaville in the Congo
Brazzaville is said to be one of the dirtiest due to its big population which causes so much chaos in the city.
The streets are constantly littered while the few rubbish bins are always full.

Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania
Dar-es-Salaam is considered the eighth filthiest city in the world and third in Africa due to heaps of litter at their beaches and on the streets.

Clean cities
No African country qualifies to be in the 25 most clean cities in the world. However, the following can be mentioned.
Kigali in Rwanda
The government of Rwanda has been keen on keeping Kigali clean, hence making it cleaner than many other African cities. A law on environmental protection aimed at cleaning the city led to a crackdown on the use of polythene bags. Kigali has over 1,000 bins placed at strategic points in the city.

Asmara in Eritrea
The Eritrean capital is possibly the safest African capital for travellers. It is one of the cleanest in Africa. The streets are elegantly lined with palms and a string of boutiques, coffee-shops and restaurants. It is arguably cleaner than Washington.

Windhoek in Namibia
Windhoek tops the list of cleanest cities in Africa. The success is mainly attributed to the strict laws on hygiene.
