There are already almost two thousand Kenyan restaurants that have joined the campaign of a group of entrepreneurs in the food and hospitality sector who have launched a petition to save the jobs of their employees and not be forced to close down their businesses which are also largely related to the tourism sector.
As is well known, since July 31, it is no longer possible to serve alcohol at any time in the country's restaurants, and the closing time, given the curfew from nine o'clock every evening, has been brought forward to 7 p.m. This after many adjustments to the category were requested, and because of the social distancing drastically reduced the capacity.
"The Covid-19 pandemic is the biggest crisis the catering industry in Kenya has ever faced. Most of the restaurants have tested their employees, comply with the guidelines of the Ministry of Health and have paid all the relevant licenses - says the communiqué inviting to sign the petition - Forecasts indicate that the catering industry in Kenya could potentially lose more than 3 million jobs and risk registering billions of shillings of "red" if this continues".
The Italian Roberto Miano, restaurateur from Mombasa and importer of Italian products, is among the speakers of the petition, along with other restaurateurs in the country.
"We need the help of the Government to fight the economic and social impact of the Coronavirus - explains Miano - for this reason we ask to remove the ban on selling alcohol and to close at 7 p.m. for all premises that have complied with the emergency decrees and the guidelines of the Ministry of Health, already spending a lot of money, as well as having made sacrifices not to lay off their staff".
