In Summary
  • The company also wants Nakumatt to pay all accrued payments at the date of vacating the premises.
  • It is also seeking a declaration that Nakumatt is in breach of the sub-lease agreement dated June 9, 2014.
  • The landlord says Nakumatt has defaulted in making other payments such as service charge, electricity bills

Troubles bedevilling Nakumatt seem far from over after its landlord at City Mall building in Mombasa sued the supermarket chain demanding payment of Sh26.6 million for rent, service charge and promotion fund.

Ideal Locations Limited also wants Nakumatt Holdings Ltd, the parent company, directed to immediately vacate the premises and not later than seven days from the time the order is issued.

Through lawyer Willis Oluga, Ideal Locations also wants Nakumatt to pay all accrued payments at the date of vacating the premises.

Mr Oluga argues that Nakumatt has on numerous occasions deliberately defaulted to pay rent, service charge and promotion fund when it falls due as agreed.

AGREED DATE

He says that in the instances where Nakumatt has made payments, it has made them later than the agreed date of the 7th of every month.

Mr Oluga argues that according to a lease agreement, failure to pay rent amounts to a breach of agreement and gives the plaintiff right to repossess the premises.

The company is also seeking a declaration that Nakumatt is in breach of the sub-lease agreement dated June 9, 2014.

According to the company, several creditors have threatened to sell or dispose of the assets or revenue of Nakumatt in order to recover monies owed to them.
