Sunset Hotel sent packing all of its over 50 employees over the weekend, marking the end of a once shining hospitality facility in Western Kenya.

Having been opened by retired President Moi in the 1970s, Sunset Hotel has been struggling with debts that has led it to its knees.

Sunset’s GM, Mr Joseph Oduor, confirmed that the hotel has been making losses for over 15 years and that since November 2018, no worker had been paid their salary.
