Still on the retail sector, Nakumatt's woes have deepened. Earlier own Nakumatt was evicted out of its branch at Nanyuki Mall over what they termed as non-payment of rent. Goods were thrown out of the building, while some stolen by the locals. A police officer at the scene said they had not been notified of the impending eviction despite the proprietor of the building having obtained a court order to evict the client over rent arrears amounting to tens of millions of shillings. Nakumatt had closed its doors in Nanyuki in November last year with a notice pinned at the supermarket's entrance indicating that the closure was temporary.
