This scene of piles of garbage bags can be seen in between the main streets, in front of houses and the sub-streets of Sana’a. This phenomenon is a result of neglecting cleaner rights who are now striking for pay increases and more permanent job contracts. This is the second time such a strike has occurred in recent times.  As the strike continues and officials ignore the growing health problem, garbage is increasing day by day on the streets.


  • I think GOVT should take necessary steps for solving this problem. I hope very soon this problem will be reduced and amount of garbage in the street will be removed. Thanks
