Earlier this year, a study conducted by The City Momentum Index (CMI) ranked Nairobi among the top twenty cities in the world renowned for its innovation, livability and capacity to re-invent itself. Nairobi took the 11th position; the only in Africa to make it to the list due to its lifestyle and location which, it said, is unmatched anywhere in East Africa.
This comes after Nairobi was ranked last year as the most intelligent city in Africa.
London topped the list for the second time in a row and being put on the same list on London is quite an achievement don’t you think? The study stated that the top scoring cities offer an environment that ‘nurtures talent and an innovation-orientated economy’.
Nairobi Governor, Evans Kidero was excited about the news. He said, “I am proud of Nairobi’s continuing position as one of the continent’s major urban hubs. The city is now in its 53rd year as the capital of an Independent Kenya. Yet its importance stretches far beyond its role as an administrative or political centre,”
It would be great for the country if Kenyans worked towards creating a better global image for Kenya not just to promote tourists and investors but also for her (Kenya) own growth, stability and good. You may want to see the tallest building to be built in Kenya.
