KISUMU, Kenya, May 31 – Uchumi Supermarket in Kisumu’s WestEnd Mall has been closed for the last one week.
It is not clear whether the supermarket has ended its operations in the lakeside city but shelves of the store have essential products missing.
Just in March this year, auctioneers and the supermarket management differed over a Sh14 million rent arrear.
The auctioneers had moved to the premises to execute an order from their client.
Paul Oketch proprietor of Pambo Auctioneers had told the media that they had orders of an eviction from their client but the management asked for more time.
The branch manager Jeremiah Omondi, however, reported that their rent was up-to-date and dismissed reports of eviction.
