BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,29TH JULY 2018-All is not well at Chandarana Foodplus Supermarket after racially sensitive email leaked recently bringing sharp divisions among the staff and the management. WWW.UPESINEWS.CO.KE has established that the supermarket chain management is blaming a new employee in their marketing department for the mess.
The giant store’s Marketing Specialist Rima Patel was quoted on Friday saying, “We are delighted to inform you that our supermarket chain, would like to give you free vouchers to winner/raffles/best performer/runners-up candidate in upcoming events. As we are now focusing on white people to attract our supermarkets.”
The mail, perceived to have implied that the retail chain was only interested in white clients, elicited anger from Kenyans on social media with most of them vowing not to visit any of the supermarket’s outlets again.
Kenyans who went to social media had no kind words for the supermarket’s management whom they accuse of propagating racial discrimination which was widely spread in the colonial days.
