The Huffington Post reports that Nairobi has re-opened for domestic and cargo planes.

Favourite part of the report is:

Nairobi’s most respected paper, The Daily Nation, reported last month that Nairobi County doesn’t have a single working fire engine. One engine, the paper said, was auctioned off in 2009 because the county hadn’t paid a $100 repair bill. Many of the responding units to Wednesday’s fire were from private security firms.

    HuffPo isn’t completely right. Nairobi had just one fire brigade. There was a huge scandal recently when the engines/trucks were sold off for cheap. The silver lining is that the airport will be rebuilt with modern facilities.
