Israeli security agents to protect Westgate Mall

15 July 2015, 17:19 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Israeli Security agencies will be used to protect the Westgate Mall, the owners have announced. 

The mall, venue of a brutal attack in September 2013 which saw 67 people killed by Al Shabaab militia, will be re-opened Saturday after a year of renovation.

Key though for anyone planning to visit the mall after the bloody events of 20 months ago, will be the security set-up of the mall and this time no chances have been taken.

" The security will be top notch," one of the owners Alex Trachenberg told News24.

" We will have up to 25 agents in the vicinity as well as other agencies to ensure that safety measures are considered," he added.

Elsewhere, Nakumatt Supermarkets, the Mall's biggest tenant has borrowed KES 500 million to finance the re-opening of its Westgate Mall supermarket.

Managing Director Atul Shah told News24 that the loan financed by local banks was meant to cover the cost of refurbishment of the branch.

Her says  that any internal means of doing so would have strained the firm.

" We had to borrow the money so as not to strain our cash resources," he said of the new supermarket.

He also confirmed that the supermarket will employ more staff to ensure the operations there are smooth.

" We will employ 250 staff compared to 210 who were working in the mall before the shopping complex was attacked," he added.

67 people died in the attack in September 2013.

The mall will re-open Saturday after an 18 month refurbishing plan.
