The Nairobi County Government on Tuesday said it has suspended the license of The Alchemist Bar to pave way for investigations into racism claims.
“…the last few days have shown us that we have much work to do to hire a new security team and develop new systems and processes to ensure that every single person feels welcome. After careful consultation with Nairobi County Government, The Alchemist has agreed to close its doors while a thorough investigation is conducted over the next few days…” the popular restaurant said in a statement.

It also said the Nairobi city county officers had toured the place to analyze the CCTV footage, “to review the night of May 29, to determine if the guests in question were denied entry and if there was a policy in place to have separate lines for guests.”
In a statement, the Nairobi County Director of Communications Beryl Okundi said that the Nairobi Governor Ann Kananu “has directed for a probe on the reported incidents and a comprehensive report to be tabled in her office within five working days.”
“We have an image to protect and the future, I have directed County Executive Committee Member for Environment to institute a multiagency task force and a comprehensive report of the same to be made in the next five days,” Governor Kananu said.
