FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Lake Victoria’s massive pollution: Africa’s largest lake is dying • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.

Lake Victoria, the planet’s second-largest freshwater lake and the largest in Africa, is in serious danger from pollution. Because lakeside communities from Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania have practically no access to sewage infrastructure, a constant flow of sewage, fertilisers, garbage and plastic waste is suffocating what has long been the main provider of food and livelihoods in this part of East Africa. Despite what seems like an uphill struggle, young activists are sounding the alarm in order to raise awareness. Our France 2 colleagues report, with FRANCE 24’s James Vasina and Camille Nedelec.
