Julia Opoti blogging on African Path asks whether Nairobi is ready for the World Social Forum 2007, “According to Brian Adero, a reporter with the East African Standard, the Kenyan hotel industry is worried about handling the large influx of delegates in Nairobi. In addition to the need for accomodation is the logistical and security burden on the city. In this same article, Adero speaks to a hotel manager who tells him Nairobi hotels could barely host the 5,000 delegates during the Climate Change.”
