A housekeeper will cost you about 300USD, while a driver will cost you 400USD a month. Both can be acquired from a reliable employment agency. Ask for a Police Certificate of Good Conduct before hiring.

Hi Shamini 

Many expats in Nairobi enjoy the opportunity to hire domestic help. As a result of the significant social inequality in Kenya, many people look for domestic work in the homes of foreigners and expats.

It should not be difficult to find trustworthy and relatively low-cost help through a reliable agency. Have a look at Expat Arrival's Culture Shock in Kenya page for some general information on hiring domestic help.

Where will you be moving from? Have you hired domestic help in the past?
