:) Hi,

I am a middle aged guy from India with a family of 03 members - self, spouse & a school going son. I recently got an offer to shift to Nairobi as an expat in the Insurance sector. However I am banking on some critical informations before accepting the offer.

Hence would be obliged to receive the below mentioned informations in context with the current standards as on today

1. Income Tax slabs
2. Cost of 02 BHK apartment per month in an upscale locality within Nairobi with proper security provisions
3. Cost of school education per month in the best available institute.
4. Cost of transportation - Bus / Taxi / Hired cab, etc
5. Cost of fuel per litre / gallon
6. Cost of groceries and daily essentials.
7. Medical cost
8. Cost of dining in restaurents / multiplexes
9. Cost of other miscelleneous expenses.
10. How safe is the city for expats? Acceptance of Indians amongst the locals ?
11. Nightlife ?
12. Prospective of common man towards Insurance.
13. Investment avenues in banks & AMC etc.
14. How much net salary in Kenyan Shillings required to live a good & comfortable lifestyle ?
15. How much is the current inflation rate?
