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.
By 2017, the losses had accumulated to over KES 117M.
He also said that a number of suppliers are being owed in millions of shillings.
According to him, lack of refurbishing the facility built in the 1970s also led it to it losing clients due to the numerous ultra-modern hotels that have emerged in the region recently.
