No. Crime isn't as bad as it is being publicist. As a foreigner just do not show off and avoid crowded places.
Every city on earth is dangerous in it's own way.

No. Tourists visiting Nairobi are safe. Avoid walking at night alone and in dark places. With a tour guide you can walk, drive anywhere in Nairobi during the day.
