Dr Mukesh Joshi, the director of Laser Eye Centre at Sarit Centre in Westlands, Nairobi, is a worried man.
On Friday, the mall’s management put up a notice advising his clients that his clinic would no longer be accessible as his lease has expired.
“To all visitors and clients of Laser Eye Centre Limited… Take notice that the lease for the premises shall expire on July 31, 2020 and the landlord shall not be renewing the same. Consequently, the landlord shall be hoarding (sic) the premises on August 1, 2020 and no one shall be allowed access,” said the unsigned notice.
The cause of the dispute is a fire that razed a section of the mall in May 2018, which necessitated repairs. Dr Joshi asked the renovators not to work during his working hours as it was discomfiting his patients.
