A Chinese restaurant in Nairobi is in the news following its reported discriminatory policy that bars Kenyans from patronizing the restaurant after 7pm.
Geoffrey Mosoku, a reporter with The Standard, reportsbeing turned away recently at the Family Restaurant along with two of his colleagues, with the gatekeeper informing the restaurant does not admit Africans after 7pm.
Here is what Geoffrey posted on his Facebook wall:
“There is this Chinese restaurant next to Nairobi hospital and my two colleagues Patrick Mayoyo and Dennis Onsarigo and I are meeting another colleague from Nigeria, so we decide to go there for an evening drink but we are turned off at the gate; reason? We are told they don’t take in Africans after 7pm. Reminds me the Norfolk or New Stanley of the colonial era. I keep warning that China will colonise us one day and it’s now happening right here.”
