How did they execute money laundering after the closure of Charterhouse?

So nakumatt had zero assets. The stores were leased, even the shelves, check out POS machines etc were also leased, and the stock belonged to the suppliers.

The directors achieved their mission which was to use Nakumatt as a conduit to fleece suppliers,creditors and banks their money and use it for their personal interest

You are right.

It was clear from the beginning.

It is still happening with Naivas, and the Quickmarts.

These retails so called giants have the same game plan.

Get inventory. Promote the inventory. Pay after 180 days for the inventory. Don't buy property. Lease property using the name "anchor" tenant.

This game has a law in other countries...Not in Kenya.


Invoice laws should be very simple. 30 days from invoice. I think that's the law at least in the US and the UK it's 15 days.

But in Kenya it's when the retail so called giant decides.

Instead of Itumbi getting teargassed and Didi Nyoro quoting Africa and Uhuru getting high and Raila becoming an AU shit, we need laws .

Laws to protect small businesses from these thieves.

15 days from invoice to payment is perfect.

I promise and mark this post.

Naivas will do the same

As long as KRA is insisting on under 400k tax, then their needs to be a way for supliers to be protected from these people.

But heck no.

Kumira kumira. BBI. etc

Dear @AmanaCapitalKE
, my investment in your unit trust was reduced by over 30% on account of @Nakumatt.Given the above, can I assume that my investment has gone down the drain?

Info from unreliable source says nakumatt had another trick eg for citymall nyali, every developer wanted nakumatt to be their anchor tenant since it came with its own ecosystem including books first, bata , etc nakumatt would collect all rent in a mall complex and pay the landlord in 90 days, most landlords agreed since they wanted the mighty nakumatt and all the ecosystem, nakumatt also used to somehow raise real estate prices and rents of neighbouring developments.

There was also the guy who cleaned his money there so they always had operating cash to cover up any "insider lending " but once he stopped the music stopped.

Tuskys already feeling the heat. Is it that the economy is overrated or supermarket business in Kenya is a fraud?

Supermarkets have names. e.g., there is a supermarket called "naivas". These names are brands. Brands run out of fashion.

The name/brand "Tuskys" is quickly running out of fashion. To be a top supermarket in Kenya and to avoid running out of fashion, you must have a branch where middle-class core is located. Middle class loves fads.
