Actually, it's usually an equal mix as follows;

1. Bei ya Malaya/ how much a kunguru(s) ripped someone off
2. Bei ya dingy lodging
3. Bei ya latest Chinese phones or some electronics/toys on Amazon or Jumia
4. Bei ya magari in which most Kenyan men struggle to fit juu ya vitambi
5. How much money "people" made before others/some flimsy milestone

Solution to Nairobi traffic is more complicated than you talkers think. Its not simply banning 14 seaters, increasing parking fee, adding bike lanes to the estates, etc. Those are just some of the solutions to a much bigger problem.

Potential solution should look like this:
Come up with an end to end design first on paper.
Come up with a road-map to implement the desired design (minimum 10 yrs roadmap)
Pass necessary laws that will guide implementation of the roadmap (should be passed by parliament)
Treasury to commit a minimum annual budget for implementation of the designs for a duration of the whole project (Also to be anchored in law)
Training of stake holders should be done continuously from inception (hakuna ku train personnel last minute)
Adopt a standard design for any future building/repair/rebuilding/ of any urban roads. Why would Kayole spine road be repaired but all stages (bus-stops) eliminated???? Such design must be built for road users who by default include motor vehicles, walking pedestrians, pedestrians on non-motorised transport (bicycles, skateboards, etc). Any urban road that hasn't considered the 3 should be considered as substandard!!

It is not going to get better from here. Moving around Nairobi is a nightmare. More and more cars are being purchased. Prepare for the worst, unless people decide to ditch their cars and use alternatives.
Men are the largest purchasers of cars and as long as Kenyan women continue to value men who have cars then men will continue buying them

A status symbol is technically your perceived value by the opposite gender.

end to end designs zimekuwa tangu time ya kibaki, the Japanese did this 15 years ago, kazi ya govt ni kulalia masikio na ku implement vitu 15 years later when the design can't meet current demands.

I heard @Sambamba bragging that he lives within Nairobi in Valley Arcade yet he drives!
So what is the point of living within the city when you still insist on owning a car?

See that's the problem. Kenyan bonobos love cars. They are a status symbol. Yet I am sure @Sambamba is fat from eating chips and burgers. If he chose to walk to Nairobi he would lose those fat buttocks in no time.

I am very sure @Sambamba drives from Valley Arcade to Nairobi Hospital to pick up medication for a lifestyle disease. Sambamba kimbia utingishe utambi.
1. I live in nairobi-ish
2. I have a small car - because transport systems in nairobi are trash.
3. I do not attach any status to the car - i use it for convenience; moving around. I could buy 5 similar cars in cash.

Find something to do other than hate people with cars. Jinga kabisa.

Solution ni moja. Banning even the personal vehicles from CBD. CBDs should be open for suppliers only.

There are simply too many parked cars in towns.
Such knee-jerk reactions against market forces rarely work. Create conducive environment to ensure matatus are convenient, safe and reliable by eliminating individual ownweship of the matatu vehicles and establishing formal structures in the business. Take the profit incentive from the operations (and replace with compliance) and shift it to management. Play with the market forces, not fighting it.

What alternatives do the people of Nairobi have? With the uncouth matatu crew behaviours, exaggerated fare charges, messed up public transport ... I would use my Toyora passo anyday anytime ata kuenda kubuy mutura pale kwa @Wakanyash
Use an Uber whenever possible or walk. I tend to walk a lot to the vegetable markets or shopping malls for example, even up to 3kms.

The level of entitlement in this forum is on another level...Yaani you have guts to trash the best road ever built in Kenya complete with barriers ,some greenery ,traffic lights ,foot and cycle paths!!
NUMBER TWO! The said road was constructed/donated by the Japanese via a grant aid! MSAADA ,kupewa ! Sio zile deni za Konyagi . What a thankless lot . You should show your appreciation by kushuka na kufagia bara bara saa ya jam sio kuwhine kwa simu!!
I use it almost daily . Traffic is much better ,100 times better than earlier years. I wouldn't change anything .
