From Shauri Moyo, Bahati, Mlango Kubwa, Umoja, Kasarani, Lavington, Kileleshwa et al, Nairobi estates have very unique names.

Winnie Odinga, daughter of ODM leader Raila Odinga, over the weekend suggested that some estates should consider changing their names.

Through her Twitter account, Winnie suggested that estates should do away with fancy names and adopt names that reflect the daily struggles of Kenyans.

“Nairobi estates should really start changing their names to reflect what they actually are. No more Skyview, BlueSky, Greenfields, Mountain View etc.

“It should be "traffic jam gardens" " Corruption money paradise" "Choke Smoke suites" "schoolbus itakuamsha 5 villas" na kadhalika,” she wrote.

The hilarious post drew a number of reactions and below we have sampled a few:
