❝Government threatens to take over hotel chain

The government has threatened to take over the African safari Club Hotel chain after management failed to pay Sh100million in salary arrears.

The Labour Minister John Munyes said the Ministry had written to the management of the hotels to pay its more than 300 workers their salary arrears or risk losing the hotels.

'We are aware Africn Safari Club is owned by some influential people I do not wish to name, but the law must be followed to the letter' he said

The Minister said the Government had issued a 21 day notice to payt the workers or face disciplinary action.

He revealed that on of the hotels owned by ASC has been sold but warned that the company might have to sell the rest of their facilities in order to pay the salary arrears.

Munyes said efforts to negotiate with the owners of ASC to pay the workers had failed and they have camped at one of the directors' hous demanding payment.❞

thats ok we had a fantastic holiday last year we stayed at the flamingo and if we hadn't been with friends it would have been terrible, we had a fantastic time only slept in the hotel as everything about the place was just awful the poor staff who tried their best with no resorces even ran out of cold beer.

We went out every night to eat locally so spent our money else where, in fact it was one of the best holidays ever and we have travelled extensivly love the Kenyan people and want to come back , Shanzu is so friendly.
