Checkout Nairobi city through the years

Nairobi city is the largest of three cities in the country. The other two are Mombasa and Kisumu.

It’s name is derived from the Maasai tribe term Enkare which means ‘cool waters’.

Take a look at some breath taking photos of what was and imagine the city as it is today…

Innovation is a good thing, but when it overtakes the capability of a people to handle it in an organised manner, it becomes a problem.

Today’s Nairobi city is a hub of businesses, tourism and technology- and we couldn’t be any more proud of it.

But then, there are those underlying issues such as pollution, overcrowding, traffic snarl ups the city is infamous for as well as corruption.

The following pictures depict a calm city. One that appears simple and pleasant.

Something we could hope to experience in today’s capital city.

That aside from technological and business advancements, there could be order, peace and clean air as we go about our daily hustles.
