Nairobi, Unifying Kenya

I loved this comment on some forum somewhere

this is the city where all Kenyan tribes come to play, the unifying factor that makes this nation stand , without this city Kenya ceases to exist, it is where history is written,where dreams and nightmares are realized, a city as diverse as the country and a true representation of the nation

no worries, Rink ntaweka (on request) .

I believe that statement to be very true. It is in Nairobi that I saw a Turkana for the first Time. One Ekai. I saw a Dinka, Taita, Shilluk, Chagga, Oromo, Chonyi, Teso and many more for the first time. Well, many lived up to their stereotypes, both good and bad, but at least I got the exposure. Now am familiar with all kind of mannerisms of some of my country mates. Thanks to the big city.
The thread is followed by some really nice photos. These photos can be found in many locations on the internets but I believe it’d be great if we had them here too.
(Edit : Wasee wanadai pic za downtown na hood. I chose to focus on the good looking kwa hii thread, not that nimelenga facts. Hizo zingine tutaziundia tu thread inshallah)

Lovely pics. Btw, bookpoint closed or. I used to buy my novels from there when I was 18 years.

Pole kwa watu wa bundles. If you have more of these lovely pics of the city, share.

Picha za Mutua Matheka if am not wrong. What makes it so hard to credit the owner of the pics? Pasting a link and giving the owner a shoutout is way easier than uploading 20 pics

I didn’t even know the owner of the photos. They are strewn allover forums. like i said, I’d give a link on request. I assume what you made is a new request. Here is where i got em : . And many of the photos are marked with their respective owner’s signatures, none of which have been brushed off, which am sure umeona. Ama unataka niseme picha za Msingi Sasis ni za Mutua ?
na ukimaliza kufuata link, you know the drill. NVs hukaa pale>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Bado hujafika>>>>>>>endelea.


Are they all his? I see some that look like msingi’s

Mbona hatuoni Tom Mboya St and beyond… pia ni nairobi

Zile za mathare , kariobangi , mukuru kwa njenga na kibera ziko wapi ?

I hate the way they defaced the neck of KICC with adverts. A true icon of the city loses its true meaning because someone ignorant and greedy wants it to. Saad.

Izo tulikuwa twategea utuletee ukiwa danganyika meffi

If you could afford bookpoint novels at 18… nice life. At that age I could only afford mtumba books kutoka kando ya barabara.

These pics are on jamii forums under kenya section. @Jakoyo there are also pics of kibera under that thread.

First saw these pics on Nairaland then then zikasambaa all over soon after,
Wakenya huwa very loud on the interwebs, Kujishasha ndio tulipenda, good thing ni it promotes the city and country creating a different narrative from the NGO photos of slums and famine only


Hizi maraya zinauza coomer ngapi?
