Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, is a city of contrasts. While it is home to some of the most affluent neighbourhoods in the country, it is also plagued by high levels of crime.
According to the Nairobi Metropolitan Police Department, the most common crimes in the city are theft, robbery, and assault. In particular, there has been a surge in the number of robberies and carjackings in recent years.
To combat crime, the Nairobi Metropolitan Police Department has launched several initiatives in recent years, including a city-wide crackdown on crime in 2013 and the establishment of a special task force to combat carjacking in 2016.
Despite these efforts, crime continues to be a problem in Nairobi. In response, many residents have taken measures to protect themselves, including installing security systems in their homes and carrying pepper spray or firearms.
While crime is a problem in Nairobi, it is important to remember that it is not unique to this city. All major cities around the world have their share of crime.
So if you are planning on visiting Nairobi, or any other city, be sure to take precautions to protect yourself from crime. And if you are unfortunate enough to become a victim, be sure to report the incident to the police.
