Nairobi is Africa’s fourth most expensive city to live in, according to a cost of living index prepared for various cities across the world.

Expatistan, an online cost of living calculator, has placed the Kenyan capital, which hosts various international organisations including UN Habitat, behind Harare, Port Louis and Pretoria.

But the survey also found that Nairobi has the fourth cheapest domestic labour in the world and the lowest purchase price for a Volkswagen Golf 1.4 TSI as well a pair of basic denim jeans.

Expatistan, however, found that Nairobi has the most expensive furnished accommodation and fast food restaurant combo meals in Africa.
