A large swampy region in east Africa that was reclaimed by the British to build a supply depot for the Ugandan Railways in the late 1890s, Nairobi got its name from the Maasai Enkare Nairobi meaning a ‘place of cool waters’. The Maasai and the Kikuru people who lived around the swampy region began to rebel at the city’s expansion, and eventually in 1963, Kenya got its independence from the British and Nairobi became its capital. Agriculture, dairy and poultry farming were the main occupations for a long time before the city grew to become an industrial hub with factories manufacturing cement, processed foods and even textiles. Some examples are Bamburi Cement for construction materials, Unga Group for producing flour, and East African Breweries for manufacturing beer. Nairobi is also Kenya’s travel and transport hub and the centre for the nation’s hospitality industry. The growing financial services, real estate and communications industries now make Nairobi a healthy commercial centre. Several companies like General Electric, Google, Coca-Cola, IBM Services, Cisco Systems and Airtel have moved their headquarters to this city.
