Most Streets, pathways and playgrounds inMogadishuhave been turned into garbage dumping areas. The garbage has remained uncollected since, the Municipal Authorities that are normally charged with such duties have been absent for almost 2 Decades now.
The residents ofMogadishuhave been without sanitation, garbage and waste removal services and are hence experiencing health problems which are no doubt primarily related to the sanitary problems they face.
Destroyed and/or absent Infrastructure
The number of people requiring services in the City ofMogadishuon a daily basis is by any standard, large. To access services, people must be facilitated to move from one point to the other. Today all the 5 major roads and 28 adjacent streets connecting the City ofMogadishurequire either resurfacing and in other cases total rebuilding.
The persistent violent conflict which led to the destruction of these roads and the unplanned growth of the city has made the repair of existing roads and building of new ones necessary. Key buildings – including City Council buildings were either totally or partially destroyed. Where they exist, they are inadequately equipped. If the City Council of Mogadishu has to effectively serve the City’s residents, its centres of operation must be conducive for the purpose.
Residents ofMogadishuare unable to unleash their total entrepreneurial potential mostly because the existing market facilities are in a complete state of disrepair or where new ones are necessary, none has been provided.
