SUPERMARKET FRAUD: Did you know that all supermarkets are not supposed to charge shoppers for parking fees?
They have a duty to employ security guards to monitor and identify and further ban vehicles which abuse free parking by leaving their vehicles for more than 6 hours a day.
If supermarkets also become landlords to other smaller businesses, they must avail designated parking spaces for such businesses and their customers.
The Nairobi City County and other Counties have made it clear that the likes of Nakumatt Holdings, Yaya Centre Nairobi, Naivas Supermarket, Tuskys Supermarkets, Chandarana Supermarket Ltd, UCHUMI SUPERMARKETS LTD, The Sarit Centre, among others operate within the law.
