In Summary
  • Ms Araka is listed as the founder and director of the company that operates at Njemwa House in Kilimani, Nairobi.
  • Vihiga County was put on high alert following a cholera outbreak that has claimed one life.

Police are looking for the cateress whose company prepared and served guests at a wedding in Karen, in which four people have died and five others, including a foreigner, hospitalised due to cholera.

The advocate of the newlyweds, Mr Joel Njogu Weru, told the Nation that the police and the Ministry of Health (MoH) officials are looking for Ms Rose Araka who runs the Trade Bells Services.

Ms Araka was contracted to offer meals to over 300 guests during the lavish wedding.

“We have reported her to the Karen Police Station under OB number 15/19/05/2017. She is beyond reach both to us and the police.

"Later, we went to the Disease surveillance and Response at MoH who also tried to reach her but failed,” Mr Weru said.

OTHERS AT RISK
Trade Bells Services describes itself as a Nairobi based catering firm founded in 1998 and specialises in custom made menu products.

“Our target clients are corporate houses, institutions and individuals who enjoy fresh and quality cuisine,” the firm says on its LinkedIn account.

Ms Araka is listed as the founder and director of the company that operates at Njemwa House in Kilimani, Nairobi.

The advocate expressed concern that Ms Araka may still “be cooking and serving people” who may not know of the risk that awaits them.
