History of Nairobi
Nairobi is the capital of Kenya and the largest city in Kenya and East Africa.
The city and its surrounding area also form the Nairobi County.
The name "Nairobi" comes from the Masai phrase Enkare Nyirobi, which translates to "the place of cool waters".
However, it is popularly known as the "Green City in the Sun".
During Kenya's colonial period, the city became a center for the colony's coffee, tea and sisal industry.
The city lies on the Nairobi River, in the south of the nation, and has an elevation of 1795 meters above sea-level.
Nairobi is the most populous city in East Africa, with a current estimated population of about 4 million.
Nairobi is currently the 10th largest city in Africa.
Nairobi is now one of the most prominent cities in Africa politically and financially.
Home to many companies and organizations, including the United Nations Environment Programme and the UN Office in Africa, Nairobi is established as a hub for business and culture.
The Nairobi Stock Exchange (NSE) is one of the largest in Africa, ranked fourth in terms of trading volume and capable of making 10 million trades a day.
Between 1896 and 1898, the Uganda Railway Company paid for by the British laid railway tracks from Mombasa to Nairobi.
Built under tremendous human hardship, 600 miles long and six years to build, “The Lunatic Line” transformed East Africa, and by 1907, Nairobi had become the new capital. Situated 100 miles south of the Equator, and 300 miles west of the Indian Ocean at an elevation of 5,500 feet, Nairobi’s pleasant climate has been an important factor in its booming success.
