InterContinental Hotels has issued a notice of intention to declare redundancies to its staff within 45 days.
Moreover, the five-star hotel may permanently cease its operations in Kenya hugely because of the Covid-19 pandemic that has affected the economy and the operation of millions of businesses across the world.
InterContinental hotel follows many other hotels that have closed in recent months.
Serena Hotel sent all staff on unpaid leave in June until further notice.
“All staff will from 1st June 2020 take unpaid leave until further notice. However, for the month of June 2020, staff will be paid an allowance of Kshs10, 000 only,” reads the memo from Serena Hotel Managing Director.
Fairmont Norfolk and Fairmont Mara Safari Club in May announced it was closing down owing to the uncertainty of the direction the global pandemic will take.
“It is regrettable that our hotels, Fairmont the Norfolk and Fairmont Mara Safari Club have since ceased their operations as a spiral effect of the Covid-19 pandemic and the recent flooding of Fairmont Mara Safari Club,” Fairmont Manager Mehdi Morad said in an internal memo on Wednesday.
