Would someone with physical disabilities have difficulties living in this city?

Don't think it's a city that accommodates wheelchairs, not sure about other disabilities. - Sep 30, 2017
Yes but not as much as in many other African capitals. One of the main shopping areas, Sam Levy, is quite accessible for example. - Jul 6, 2017
Probably - a lot of buildings don't have facilities and elevators can often be broken. - Apr 16, 2016
Yes. Few sidewalks. No infrastructure for those with disabilities. - Dec 8, 2013
The city is not very friendly towards anyone who cannot walk without assistance. - Jul 29, 2013
Medical care here, even in the privately-run clinics, is basic. I wouldn't come here with any serious medical issues. - Jun 21, 2009
There is very little that has disabled or wheelchair access, sidewalks are cracking and in many cases dont exist any longer. There is however a school for the blind, and other institutions focusing on disabilities. - Sep 26, 2008
