Alchemist managers questioned over racist claims

Nairobi governor Ann Kananu has disclosed that so far 10 employees of Alchemist Bar have been arrested and arraigned.

The entertainment joint, whose closure the governor ordered on Tuesday, has been at the centre of controversy since last weekend over claims of racial discrimination.

“We have an image to protect and the future, I have directed County Executive Committee Member for Environment to institute a multiagency task force and a comprehensive report of the same to be made in the next five days,” Ms Kananu said.

Earlier, the club’s management had distanced itself from the incident despite have issued a public apology on the same.

On Twitter, this is what some users had to say about the newest development to the saga:

Another thought the move was not a fight against racism but the county government resuming war against expatriates.

Another one enquired why the officials were being arrested citing the society had become angry and fragile.

Another one felt Kananu was using her feelings to make the decision and that justified his not liking women in leadership.
