It was an eye sore, disgusting, totally incomprehensible. Trays and trays of uncovered sliced water melon and sliced pineapples on display along Obinagu Road, by the notorious Liberty Hotel junction along Abakpa Nike Road, Enugu.
This displayed ready-to-eat fruits waiting for customers were totally uncovered, not even packaged in transparent cellophane bag as is usually the case. Anyone that knows Enugu, is aware that Liberty Hotel junction is a very busy, dirty area with the notorious Enugu dust settling on the fruits. Yes, red dust, because Enugu naturally has red soil.
Liberty Hotel junction is a very chaotic bus stop, jam-packed with activities with the surrounding gutters reeking of the smell of urine and faeces. You find touts, passengers, pedestrians shouting and jostling for space with the pedestrians clutching tightly to their bags and looking over their shoulders in fear.
