Most of the farmers around  Dar-salaam take their agricultural produce to Sokoni market(Tandaleward).The most amazing thing about this market is that you will always see a municipal council’s lorry packed somewhere around ready to collect garbage from the market.For me, this is welfare because when I compare Sokoni market with Toi market i.e. in Kibera, I see I a big contrast. In Toi market you will never see a lorry coming to collect gabbage.The burden of garbage collection is usually left to the business owners.

In terms of infrastructure, Sokoni market is easily accessible.Both buyers and sellers can use any form of transport to access inside.Stalls have been partitioned well taking into consideration space for every seller.

Apart from farm produce,Sokoni market  has stalls where they sell  imported second hand clothes commonly known as”Mitumba”.The clothes are very much affordable and you can always find different designs/fashions.

My opinion is for the City Council of Nairobi to atleast deploy two lorries on weekly basis for garbage collection. I believe with this done, it will help in maintaining a clean and safe environment free from pests and diseases.
