Diners at the ‘Chinese Restaurant’, at the junction of Galana and Lenana roads in Kilimani, Nairobi, a politely requested not to be black after sunset.

No black Africans are allowed to enter after 5pm.

The only Africans allowed into the compopund are those driving Chinese, European or Indian patrons. Although restuarant manager Ms Esther Zhao does allow Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko and former Cabinet Minister Raphael Tuju inside to eat. They are “loyal” African patrons who have spent Sh20,000 at the restaurant over set time.

Says Zhao:

“We don’t admit Africans that we don’t know because you never know who is Al-Shabaab and who isn’t. It is not like it is written on somebody’s face that they are a thug armed with a gun.”

Maybe a no guns policy should have been first tried?
