KILIMANJARO restaurant (operated by its parent body, Sundry Foods) is one of the rapid growing fast-food chains in Nigeria. Its spread comprises strategically located outlets in almost all the states.
Kilimanjaro is disputably one of the most popular franchises in Port Harcourt as it has overthrown (the hitherto celebrated) Mr. Biggs and other former eatery heavyweights, probably attributed to its near-excellent food quality, riveting name, attractive spacious layout and strategic locations in Port Harcourt (include: GRA, Woji, Trans-Amadi and Rumuibekwe) that seem to appeal to a certain demographic.
Our focus however is on its Rumuibekwe outlet. This outlet is in the very centre of medium to heavy pedestrian and vehicular traffic as it faces the pivotal Aba-Road expressway, Shell Residential Area, and is located at one of the entrances into the Rumuibekwe Housing Estate. It is flanked at the right by a Bank and to its left lies the eyesore and nosesore in the form of a stagnant open gutter.
The putrid stench that oozes from this cesspit is best left imagined but unfortunately experienced daily by pedestrians who must take that route. Not only does the restaurant’s delivery truck drive through, across and past this, worse still, the gutter and its stink shouldn’t be anywhere near a restaurant, where people go to eat! What are people paying for biko kwanu?!!! Don’t we have Health Authorities? NAFDAC, Sanitation officers etc, coman see and act appropriately. See more pictures below:
For such a promising brand, it is disappointing to note this. It would be upsetting to be plagued with challenges arising from these hygiene and environmental complaints. The Kilimanjaro management should kindly endeavour to examine and rectify this aberration so we the consumers/customers can rest easy, assured that our consumption is safe.
