President Uhuru Kenyatta leaves Barka Restaurant on January 17, 2020

THE Barka restaurant, a Swahili hotel serving mostly Coastal cuisine, has always been the place President Uhuru Kenyatta and other government VIPs go for lunch while in Mombasa.
It’s said to be his favorite.
On Thursday, Uhuru while in company of several government dignitaries arrived at the eatery and caught the hotel staffs and other guests without notice.

Hotel staffer Tiny Mzee said the abrupt visit forced the staff to request other guests in the VIP lounge to move to the common area and make room for the President.
On previous occasions, the hotel administration was notified in advance and given time to prepare.
The President’s protocol team would also arrive early and inspect the area and the food to be eaten by the head of state and his companions.

Why does the hotel attract VIPs?
The hotel in Old Town is a few metres from the Central police station and presumably the security of guests is guaranteed.
The hotel management says quality services and food has made them a preferred venue in the CBD area.
The management also said Barka is the only hotel where its guests, including the political class, are guaranteed privacy.

The eatery has three lounges, including a common lounge, a VIP lounge and a VVIP lounge.
“Our taste has never changed, our services have remained the same and we have always maintained a clean environment,” a manager said.
Barka is one of the few places serving the majority, not all, the Swahili dishes.
Though the hotel is famous for its biryani and pilau, visitors can have a taste of other dishes rarely found in restaurants.

The hotel is also popular for its shawarma, grilled meat on skewers, attractively displayed outside the restaurant to attract more guests.
With all the ‘important’ people being served at the hotel, one might expect different classes of service, but that is not the case.
Management says it gives every guest the same excellent service, without class distinctions.

Niko na swali… Sasa akipanda ndege au SGR hizo gari zake ni unyounyo mpaka Nairobi kumkaribisha… The drivers must have a lot of fun juu hawajambeba ni kukanyanga na kusonga

Sio kazi mbaya. But I guess you have to truly love that job and the long hours.

Meanwhile unaenda kusalimia Gathecha unaskia umevutwa nyuma by unseen hands. There must be a hundred of them around that place.

While kids are starving

It’s a tough job Kwanza ukiwa na family.

Mombasa is an odomo zone.

For those ijiots who don’t how an armored car door looks like…dio hio screen chot.[ATTACH=full]281450[/ATTACH]

:D:D:D Kenyans really need to take a cue from this. Wasn’t it not too long ago that Joho, Governor 001, was being barred on his own home turf from attending functions that Uhuru was presiding over at the Coast? Today they are all smiles. :D:D:D

Where is that 20k bonobo? He should work harder, smarter, with more determination. It’s mid Jan, we don’t want people whining in 11 months eti…ohhhh. …:D:D:D

Kenyans need to participate fully in the political process but do not invest too much of their productive time on these politicians cursing your neighbor. The evidence is right here.

miimi barka siwezi kula after kuniharisha kama vita na sio mara moja tu. wacha watu wapambane. kuna mikahawa afazali kama bin agil

By the way hizi hotels siku hizi ni moto ya kuotea mbali. Can one sue them for food poisoning? Juu I have long list of establishments that need suing.

Kenyan hotels and hygiene wacha tu.

Lakini isikuwe una promote bin agil, vis-a-vis barka.

I understand they are trained to jump in front of the bullet.
And in many countries they taste the food first. So… ni kujitolea maisha, literally.

He knows mombasa residents are bonobos and since he shook hands with muguruki every dust settled.

Aende ajaribu hio ujinga pale Kamakis kwa thuraku

Ever heard of the silent majority?

Silent majority my foot. Did you read the latest census report ama you are deep in konyagi’s rectum?

Ni ujinga.

Hio kazi ni ufala, kwanza superior officers hukutreat kama second class citizen.

Nimeachia hapo kwa the hotel is near the central police station [SIZE=1]ati [/SIZE][SIZE=5]security is guaranteed. [/SIZE]

La,sivo nimepata shida kubwa na wageni wangu mara mbili baada ya kula huko.
