Kenya: Westgate Mall to Reopen in July

Westgate Mall will reopen in July, 21 months after it was attacked and destroyed by terrorists, director Alex Trachtenberg has said.

In a statement issued after an inter-denominational prayer service hosted at the Westgate Shopping Mall foyer, Trachtenberg said that tenants had begun taking up space at the mall and will soon be moving in to start outfitting their stores ahead of the reopening.

“As the Management and Directors’ of Westgate Mall alongside our esteemed tenants, we are today joined in this interdenominational thanksgiving and prayer service as we prepare for the reopening sometime in July,” Trachtenberg said.

Giant retailer Nakumatt was the anchor tenant of the mall. Nakumatt’s managing director Atul Shah said the firm will start working on finishes and fittings of its Westgate store next week as it gears up for the reopening.
