Abandoned zone; The rich also cry

Nairobi Club shares a fence with Kenyatta National Hospital, the quarantine and treatment center for the Coronavirus pandemic.

Many entertainment and recreation facilities have been deserted in and around the upper hill business district, with little or no sign of revelers.

The Meladen Club and Restaurant, known to be frequented by senior government officials, lacked its usual fleet of fuel guzzlers, as the attendants stood nearby basking in the sun. Bad business.

Java House coffee, that has branches in several streets in Nairobi, announced their closure for two weeks, in compliance with the government directive.

Upper Hill remained a ghost area yesterday. Only banks, Old Mutual Insurance, the German Medical Centre were open.

This is after the government directive to have social joints such as restaurants closed, offering only take out services to its customers.
