Donia believed it was very unhygienic to place the yams on the floor especially since they were meant for public consumption.

She decided to film the moment and share the video online to educate netizens about the importance of maintaining hygiene at all times.

However, on second thought, she believed that it was best to confront the seller and let her know that her action was unhygienic.

Donia confronted the yam seller who began packing the yams into a bowl immediately.

The seller acknowledged her wrongful act, apologised and promised not to repeat such an act.

Donia narrated in the video:

"I went to the market and I saw something that really made me shiver. This mama put woman cut yam and poured it on the ground in the market on the bare floor where people are walking around.

"No this is so unhygienic and gross. Some people's immune system is not strong enough to handle the illness that could arise from this. If only humans can pay more attention to their health and what they take in."
