, NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 27 – Regional retailer, Nakumatt Holdings has confirmed plans to resume near normal operations at its Nakumatt Ukay branch on Saturday morning.
The branch located at Ukay Centre, on Nairobi’s Mwanzi/ Ring Road Parklands area in Westlands will reopen at 8:30am and will continue running its 24hour services.
Speaking when he confirmed the scheduled reopening of the branch, Nakumatt Holdings Managing Director Atul Shah said the reopening of the store is geared at supporting on-going national healing efforts following the Westgate shopping mall terrorist attack last Saturday.
While extending Nakumatt’s sympathies to Westgate Mall patrons who, were, caught up in the heinous and cowardly atrocity, Shah assured that the firm would continue supporting efforts to ensure the speedy restoration of business and social services following the attack.
“As a corporate citizen that is aware of the world we are living in, we shall not tire to condemn in the strongest terms possible, acts of terrorism wherever they occur. However, one thing we can all take from this experience is that alertness and security are the responsibility of all of us,” he said.
Due to the closure of the access road from Peponi road through to Mwanzi road, customers are, advised to access Ukay centre from the Ring Road Parklands route.
