Uchumi Supermarket at Mombasa's Moi Avenue was evicted from the premises housing on Tuesday, April 24 over failure to pay sh12 million rent arrears.
Immediately after acquiring court orders, Makini auctioneers hired youth to load goods into trucks parked outside the premise as employees watched on.
Foodstuffs, clothes and shoes were among the goods taken away.
“The rent is long overdue. They were given a notice but they did not pay and the rent arrears are coming up to Sh12 million,” said Tom Nyandika, the Makini Auctioneers supervisor as quoted in the Daily Nation.
According to him, the landlord had issued the supermarket with a notice to pay rent in 14 days – which was later extended to three months.
All the goods have now been taken to a warehouse awaiting court directions.
Here are photos of how youth hired by the auctioneer helped vacate the premise.
