1 thought on “Trip to Eastleigh -A Tree Grows in “Little Mogadishu”

  1. You are misinformed. Not 99% of Somalis in Eastleigh are illegal immigrants plus as it filthy may be, the county is a business hub that not only supplies merchandise for boutiques at the central business district and Nairobi town but also exports the same goods to East and Central Africa. Its a myth that guns are being sold in Eastleigh when every quarter of a year, a Somali business man is killed inside his stall. Further, the pick pockets and the thousands of hawkers are Kenyans. I guess the government are grateful of the fat revenue they collect from the business center.

    Remember , a day or two in foreign place only fills you with misguided ideas. Find time to study Eastleigh, I’m not saying Somalis are saints, but they have proved to be a driving force in the Kenya’s economy.
