RACISM!! Chinese Restaurant In Kenya That Discriminates Against Blacks Shut Down

A Chinese restaurant in the Kenyan capital Nairobi has been shut down and its owners summoned by authorities after it emerged it was discriminately excluding black patrons, reports said Wednesday.

The restaurant became the focus of city authorities after furious residents took to social media to denounce an apparently racist policy of not allowing African patrons to eat there after 5pm -- pushing #RacistRestaurant, #NoBlacksHere and #TheChineseInvasion to be top trending topics.

The owners of the restaurant said the measure had been put in place following a robbery operation by some blacks in 2013, and have apologised for causing any offence incurred in the process.

But it said the Chongquing Chinese restaurant, situated in Nairobi's bustling commercial and residential district of Kilimani, had been shut down anyway for not having the proper licences.

"We have established that the restaurant did not have the licences and I have ordered it closed until the management complies," Nairobi governor Evans Kidero said in a statement. 
"The owners of the restaurant have no change of user from residential to commercial which is a requirement to operate a business in Nairobi," he said, adding the restaurant did not have a valid liquor licence and had failed to comply public health requirements on food handling. 
"As of now the restaurant will remain closed until they comply with all set rules and regulations. We have deployed security officers around the premises."
The Standard Newspaper quoted his very words saying... The governor also asserted that "all business and service providers must ensure that all customers and clients are treated equally with respect and dignity, irrespective of race, colour, sex, tribe and religion," 

Reports said the restaurant's Chinese owners and managers had also been summoned by Kenya's immigration authorities, while one Kenyan MP has also asked the Parliamentary Committee on Security to carry out its own investigation.
