NAIROBI, Kenya, May 19 – The Westgate shopping mall is set to reopen its doors this July after closure following the 2013 terror attack.

Westgate Mall Director Alex Trachtenberg confirmed that tenants taking up space at the mall will soon be moving in to commence their respective store furnishings ahead of the reopening.

“As the management and directors of Westgate Mall alongside our esteemed tenants, we are today joined in this interdenominational thanksgiving and prayer service as we prepare for the reopening sometime in July,” Trachtenberg said.

The Westgate terror attack left 67 people dead and property worth millions of shillings destroyed.

The attack was perpetrated by Al-Qaeda-linked Al Shabaab militants who later said it was in retaliation of the continued stay of Kenya’s military in the lawless Somalia.

On his part, Nakumatt Holdings Managing Director Atul Shah confirmed that the regional retailer will be commencing its in-store step up from next week.

“The fall of Westgate following the attack two years ago was a big blow to our business. I am however glad to confirm that our customers among other partners have enabled us to overcome the challenges and we are now a 52 branches strong retailer up from just about 40 branches then,” said Shah.
