Nairobi is warm as we drive through Westlands, into the City Centre and then down to Thika Superhighway, Rachel Kibui writes in Kenya's Daily Nation.

The day before making the trip last week, we had been informed that the weather would be cold, but as we drove, we realised how tough the job of the weatherman is.

The weather has become extremely fickle, and many farmers are on the receiving end.

About 20km down the superhighway, we branch off to the Eastern bypass and then later onto Kangundo Road to Ruai, a sprawling suburb that has become a real estate hub.

Ruai is dry and dusty, perhaps why real estate is taking precedence in the area. We are in the fast-growing district to meet Domiciano Maingi, a fish farmer.
