Nairobi’s poor drainage? Some say it’s good Photoshop

With the rainy season comes creative Nairobians. A photo has been shared online depicting a Nairobian rowing an inflatable boat in the CBD after roads flooded.

Stunned passersby stared at the unbothered man as he maneuvered through a flooded section of the Moi Avenue-Biashara Street junction.

A boda boda rider even halts his journey and looks at the man rowing his boat in a partially flooded section of the road.

Some city residents claim the photo is a product of good Photoshop, while others see it as a true depiction of Nairobi’s poor drainage system.

Most roads in the city were rendered impassable over the weekend following heavy rains.

Here is a sample of comments on the photo.
