Equity Bank Kicked Out of Its City Hall Branch

May 24, 2013

The county government of Nairobi has ordered Equity Branch to relocate its City Hall branch, the Star is reporting.
The bank has been given six months to move out, to give room for a restaurant for the County Assembly members.

Apparently, Equity Bank chief executive James Mwangi has been trying to get an appointment with governor Evans Kidero, but so far nothing. 

Interim County Secretary of Nairobi Lillian Ndegwa said that bank will vacate the premises in September, to cushion the county representatives who have complaining of lacking a refreshments facility.
“We have written to them to move out as the space will now serve its correct purpose,” Ndegwa said on phone. The 8,000 square feet space will now house a state-of-the art restaurant and lounge for the Nairobi County Representatives when they are in session at the County Assembly which is next door. Before Equity Bank was leased the space two years ago, the space used to house the once famous Mara Restaurant.
Equity has been paying Sh 300,000 a month for the space.
