    To brave the cold weather, reports indicate that Kenyans can invest in warm clothes such as boots and jackets.

    Additionally, it is important to take hot water and drinks such as tea and coffee.

    Also, Nairobians can invest in heaters to keep a cold house warm as well as stay active to boost circulations.
