Jomo Kenyatta, Kenya's future president, was jailed for his involvement even though there was no evidence linking him to the rebellion.

Pressure exerted from the locals onto the British resulted in Kenyan independence in 1963, with Nairobi as the capital of the new republic.

As Nairobi is adjacent to the eastern edge of the Rift Valley, minor earthquakes and tremors occasionally occur.

The Ngong Hills, located to the west of the city, are the most prominent geographical feature of the Nairobi area.

However, it is popularly known as the Green City in the Sun, and is surrounded by several expanding villa suburbs.

Nairobi is the 14th-largest city in Africa, including the population of its suburbs.

The sunniest and warmest part of the year is from December to March, when temperatures average the mid-twenties during the day.

The mean maximum temperature for this period is 24 °C (75 °F).

After independence, Nairobi grew rapidly and this growth put pressure on the city's infrastructure.

Power cuts and water shortages were a common occurrence, though in the past few years better city planning has helped to put some of these problems in check. Nairobi is situated between the cities of Kampala and Mombasa.

But until that plan has borne fruit, Nairobi must remain what she was then, a slatternly creature, unfit to queen it over so lovely a country.

The continuous expansion of the city began to anger the Maasai, as the city was devouring their land to the south.

and the city grew around administration and tourism, initially in the form of big game hunting.
