      Default Nairobi hit top ten most dangerous cities in the world.

      Last time i saw a thread in JF claiming that Kenya is more peaceful than Tanzania.
      Then today I was left wondering how did Nairobi make it in this list....

      9. Nairobi, Kenya
      > GDP per capita: $807.50 (32nd lowest)
      > Adult literacy rate: 73.6%
      > Adult mortality rate per 1,000: 387
      > Population living on < $1 per day: 19.7%
      According to the UN, nearly 20% of the population of Kenya lives on less than $1 per day. The country has one of the highest unemployment rates in the world, and GDP per capita is just over $800, compared to the estimated $46,860 in the U.S. While crime is high throughout the country, it is particularly bad in the capital city of Nairobi. Violent crimes, including carjacking, kidnapping and home invasion, occur regularly and are often fatal. According to the U.S. State Department, “In early 2007, two U.S. citizens were killed and one critically injured in two separate carjacking incidents. Nairobi averages about 10 vehicle hijackings per day and Kenyan authorities have limited capacity to deter and investigate such acts.” Nairobi also is known to be a hotbed for scams targeting tourists.

      couple of things;

      24/7 Wall St. reviewed travel warnings issued by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs. These reports detail the type of crime or violence in the area, including whether Americans are being targeted.
      In early 2007, two U.S. citizens were killed and one critically injured in two separate carjacking incidents
      So now cities are judged on the basis of whether Americans are killed or not? Is that why Ciudad Juarez is not on the list?

      In the year before August 2009, Juárez's murder rate was the highest reported in the world, exceeding the holders of the second and third highest rates by more than 25%.......The violence generated by the drug war translated into more than 2,600 killings in 2008
      So Nairobi is more dangerous than a city which had more murders in a year than the whole of Kenya (more than double, in fact), Is that because none of the 2,600 were American?


      So, if Nairobi is that dangerous, why did the UN see it fit to upgrade its safety and security rating to a B last year...a development that rubbed quite a few on the UN gravy train the wrong way

      Daniel Howden: UN loses benefits of 'Nai-robbery'


      The Kenyan capital is the UN's third-largest headquarters after New York and Geneva, and the base of its environmental body, UNEP. However, the organisation has a somewhat uneasy relationship with Nairobi itself and chose long ago to retreat behind compound walls and into a world of UN supermarkets, recreational centres and armoured residential quarters.

      The city beyond its walls was deemed to be too dangerous, which in bureaucratic speak meant a category C listing. This put the place on a par with Kinshasa, Bamako and Ouagadougou, which to anyone who lives here is odd in the extreme. Odder still that Johannesburg, with its considerable crime problem, merits an A ranking (Jo'burg also has more murders in a year than the whole of Kenya), seeming to suggest that the league is based on amenities rather than safety.

      Nonetheless you would have thought there would be a loud if muffled cheer from Gigiri when staff were told that the Kenyan capital was now safe enough to merit an upgrade to B.

      As ever it hasn't quite worked like that. The pretence that "Nai-robbery" is a seething hotbed of crime earns those hardy souls at the UN a tidy sum in risk allowances and the city's promotion to the B-league will cost staff up to $5,000 (£3,200) per person annually and a free trip home.

      Get your facts right Dar is bigger than Nairobi in size and populationwise! dar has over 1590 sq km vs 696 sq km and population around 3.5 mio residents vs 3.4 mio. residents in Nairobi

      Siamini kwamba Nairobi ni kubwa kuliko Dar. Am not seeing any modernity in it. If anything Dar is growing faster than that Nairobbery.
