A lavish restaurant owned by wanted Nairobi businessman Jimi Wanjigi has been closed.

Caramel Restaurant and Lounge located at the ABC Place in Westlands remained closed on Tuesday hours after police obtained court orders to search Mr Wanjigi’s two offices.

Besides Caramel, police were also allowed to access his Kwacha offices located on General Mathenge Road in Westlands, Nairobi.

At the Caremel, guards at the building’s main entrance said the restaurant has not been opened since morning.

None on the employees has reported since morning.

The restaurant was the nerve centre for Nasa operations after the August 8 election, where opposition leader Raila Odinga held several press conferences.

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory was eventually overturned by the Supreme Court.
