Tuesday, June 9, 2020 – Giant Telco, Safaricom, has temporarily closed several shops in Nairobi and Mombasa due to the COVID19 scare.
This is to allow for cleaning, fumigation, and sanitization of the affected shops.
The closed shops include Safaricom Shops in Nyali and Rex House both in Mombasa, as well as Thika and Lavington Mall.
“As we are all aware, Kenya and indeed the world is still contending with the health risk posed to our population by the Covid-19 pandemic.”
“Safaricom continues to take proactive and preventative measures to safeguard the health and well-being of our staff and customers,” the statement read in part.
“The affected shops will reopen on Thursday 11th June.”
“We apologize for any inconvenience caused,” the statement added.
Safaricom CEO Peter Ndegwa added that the company will be undertaking such measures regularly to all their shops and customer-facing facilities, to safeguard the health and wellbeing of their staff and customers.
This comes after an employee at Thika Road Mall’s Safaricom shop tested positive for Covid19.
