Botswana-based Choppies supermarket's outlet on Kenyatta Avenue in Nakuru. PHOTO | SIMON LIBAFUBotswanan retailer Choppies is in talks with owners of Nanyuki Mall to take over as the anchor tenant after Nakumatt Supermarket was evicted on Tuesday for non-payment of rent. Nakumatt was thrown out of the Nanyuki Mall space in a dramatic episode that saw its goods strewn out of the building and looters having a field day before police officers dispersed them. It will also unveil another at the soon-to-be-opened Kiambu Mall, taking up space previously set aside for Nakumatt. Nakumatt lawyers have, however, warned that the ongoing evictions in Kenya are illegal, claiming they go against a court order prohibiting such actions.
