The closure of Mega City now leaves the once-giant retailer with only five branches in the country.

According to the furious 37 employees who were rendered jobless with immediate effect, the retailer had not paid their three months salary arrears.

Angered former employees said that the management of the. Mega City Branch had earlier this year alleged that Sketchers shoes worth Sh900,000 mysteriously disappeared, a move that saw their salary slashed in half as a way to compensate for the loss.


“There is no single day the store has been broken into, so the news of our salary being cut was absurd,” said a visibly angry employee Julius Ochuka.

Angry Ochuka cussed that they had sacrificed themselves to survive on the peanut payments they were given with hopes that they would be paid in full this month.

This is the razor blade a huge number of Kenyans were bluffed to support carelessly without a second thought of how deep it was going to cut the already bankrupt and debt-ridden economy.
