A tree sprouts out of a long-neglected drainage channel along a major highway in Nairobi. Blockage of most drainage channels in the Kenyan capital causes heavy flooding during the rainy seasons. It has also contributed to an upsurge of malaria in the city as mosquitos breed in pools of stagnant water. An increase of rats in Nairobi has been described as the consequence of an overwhelmed city sanitation system.
