NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 13 – Wadi Degla Holding, an Egyptian investment firm is set to open five new clubs in Nairobi at a cost of Sh10 billion in the next three years.
Wadi Degla Clubs Kenya Manager Joseph Reda says the firm is looking at opening clubs in Migaa and Karen and is still looking for other places in Nairobi to set up two more clubs.
Reda says the firm is also looking at adding more clubs in other parts of the country including Kisumu and Mombasa.

The Club is also set to expand to Uganda and Rwanda in the next few years.
