@jusjems Ranking must have been done by Jubilee government

@FNyadimu So the Cape towns, Johannesburg, cairo... Mogadishu.... are all jokes

@mureithikemm Did the rankers visit Pipeline, D, 44 not to talk of the real Kibera, Koch etc or they were airlifted from JKIA to upperhill to do their ranking?

@elickkabet Mmewai enda Lagos ama mnaongea tu kuhusu hii market yetu so called Nairobi

@Msmatei Which Nairobi? This same one ama kuna Nairobi ingine

@GilnertMwanga What did they see in that untidy town? Nairobi is just one big open air mitumba market and dumpsite.

@Uhuruksa It's residents and citizens disagree and what was the criteria.....? Show us the data....!
