Street food vendors have been told to stop selling their goods as Dar — the 12th dirtiest city in the world — deals with a cholera outbreak.
“Roadside eateries are a serious health hazard at this time while we’re grappling with cholera,” says Dar’s regional commissioner Said Meck Sadick.
Blaming the cholera outbreak on poor sanitation and hygiene, Sadick says street-side food vendors will not be allowed to operate until further notice.
Vendors selling water in plastic bags have also been ordered to stop.
Nearly five dozen people are being treated, while the death toll still stands at four.
