    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;

    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?

    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:lol:

    i like nairobi, just like any big city crime is at high rate! You can get anything counterfeit along river road. Dar is comparable small to have such crime level.

    I do too, YC.
    As a matter of fact NBO is more beautiful, bigger, cleaner, advanced and even modern than Dar or any Tanzanian city

    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.
