@landoner, for the facebook  it was a link to everyone on beautiful cites in africa. so there u got m wrong. about this thread, funny enough it was not started by a kenyan, as per the website i wudnt call it nigerian since its open 2 all but i would say it was developed by a nigerian. ope u took tyme to read the whole of this thread, comments made by nigerians such as ignorant, gemine n others make me think these guys r just jealous. i might b wrong, but why would one want to tell us that our airline will b overtaken by SAA when it is jst obvious they r beta, Why would sambody call us bushmen n hunters.n post photos of bushmen. i always wonder, as i have stated in abuja thread if majority of naijas love complaining,

As per slums just read the first post, its about areas that the international media do not focuss on, the beautiful cites just as the facebook thread ave posted, creat a thread on slums n sure i will post tooo

@ londoner, thats true, but i think we will surprise u in that slum thread, for real weve started upgrading our slams. in majengo pumwani area a pilot project for lowcost decent housese in slums was completed afew years ago. Kibera the funds have alredy ben budgeted for.n what we r seeing is highrise flats replcing the slums.believe it or not the shunties in our slums majority 2day have electricity,decent community bathrooms replacing the flying toilets. i think even on a slum thread our slums r doing well, smiley

Mr maasai n fellow kenyans

You can't come here and start making mouth o

What i said isnt a joke

A friend of mine lost her aunt on one of em planes
Kenya Airways made me sleep in the airport for two days!

i have my qualms o

yea we got 2 kenya airwaysplanes coming down one was an Air bus that fell on Nigerian coast minutes after taking off(from naigerian) it fell in the ocean.This means the accident was nt badly off since it never exploaded. 10 pple swam to the shore but hundrends died majority out of drowning. we were mad with nigerian navy n rescue team, they had a chance to save many but too lazy or incompetent.

the other plane 777 boeing came down like an year ago in duara cameroon. it is said bad weather. However u got to understand that route is dangerous n no west african plane fly that way after being suspended due to too many accidents n sam lack of safety measures, where by kenya airways was granted the way. so they r death trap but better than any other air line in east,centaral n west Africa, i stand 2 b corrected.

more like an invisible reminder of the fact that beautiful pictures of selected places don't make a nation.

better than the rebels in the north of your country (u know those ones u hypocrites like to pretend do not exist) and those who have turned your nation into one huge bloodbath.

uhm at least we arent killing ourselves over the elections unlike some country i know. I'm sure u are aware that many are going to the courts to seek redress and are actually getting justice. Want me to mention a few states?

he can't be worse than arap moi or mwai kibaki eh.

at least we have money. Cant say the same for those who rely on the poor proceeds of tea leaves.

it is not inappropriate, it is the problem with africans. They are too myopic to deal with issues, we prefer to bury our heads in the sands of denial.
Continue posting beautiful images while your country burns.

who gives a fig about Kenya?

we are tired of seeing the "beauty of kenya" when all we see on the news are images of death and destruction in the same nairobi.
Get real.


u made me crack ma ribs. Yea we know its shame 2 kenya for our killings, but unfortunately( for u) we r foccusung on positive things about it. N0 1 u cant fool kenyans, not like poor nigerias who trashed democracy long tyme ago. ya dua rigged n all nigerians were dancing themselves mad, since they r now immune to morality( vices r openly condoned.) N0 2 we r fixing all this messs, cleaning voter regester,addressing th gap btwn poor n rich, tribalism n corruption. as the clashes die, we r burring all this. what will come out a bettr country.so kind of the violence was blessing in disguise, for now things r back 2 nomalcy, unless nigeria is broadcasting stale news, am sure its possible

Trust me, u don't want to go to kenya now, may be later


true it has ben bad but just as many predicted it never became a genocide. we'r making progress towards peace n the two parties have agreed on fresh polls after two years, now they r negotiating about power sharing.but did u know that the outside media were exergerating on this matter, like in north coast a famous place for tourism there was no acts of violence yet the foreigners wishing to visit cancelled their jouney after the abroad media houses carried out horrifying news.

I stand to be corrected. Is the other name for nigerians, complains?. I wanted to see the beauty of Nigerian cities. i started with lagos, it has nice buildings although alot need to be done to make it a world class, what amazed me is in the thread alot of naijas were complaining n complaining. so i came to this thread n Abuja is a city to beheld n talk about, but even here the complains dialogue is more than the photos uploaded. what is wrong with some of u guys. am not boasting but look at the beautiful pictures of nairobi. we as kenyans we have a share of many problems but shud that hinder us celebrating the little good things we have?, n even on that thread (on nairobi photos) some naijarians r still complaining, ?come on celebrate the beauty of african cities, dont b brainwashed ba wester media. embarassed shocked sad angry

i think this is a clever woman, i mean its the way u see it, she is an opportunist, sleeps with another man at a calculated risk, ie if she was caught she had a briliant answer, you told me, so all she had to do is to pretend to be a fool, n quench her , u know what, after the husband having been away during xmass

Its not only rude i think it also smacks of idiocy to spend the time speaking Kenyan on a Nigerian forum. Are there no Kenyan forums were you can go dialogue with the masai?

You can only show Nairobi as if that is all there is to Kenya, why don't you show us pictures of the hinterlands were the real poverty abides? We are tired of seeing places built up by white people! At least we can boldly beat our chests and say WE (black people) built Abuja, parts of Lagos, Enugu, Portharcourt and Calabar. . .

Each time we see these pictures, all we see are white people with the blacks merely onlookers.


davidylan ua very wrong to imagine that since they are white people they have assisted us in building nairobi. samhow kenyans have been taught to let facts speak 4 themselves n so i ask you to research among the scyscrappers in Nai howmany have ben constructed by the whites or even owned by the whites, most of the tall buildings such as I&M n intercontinenetal house belong to Mr simeone Nyachae n chriss kirubi, pure blacks, not 4getting a number owned by the government, The reason u see many whites is coz kenya economy is supported by tourism, pliz gather ua information well ma dear.

I am a Kenyan and live and work in Nairobi. This pics are real though our infrastructures mainly roacd need to be improed coz we suffer from traffic jams. However this might be a thing of the past very soon with the government pledging to upgrede roads to match with the rising population. Am proud to be a Kenyan and am happy to see other good looking cities like Abuja and Lagos. Long live Africa
