KFC Re-opens in Nairobi capital of hungry Kenya

Kentucky Fried Chicken opened on Friday in Nairobi at the Junction shopping mall to such huge crowds that I fear many westerners will think that the crowds are the hungry starving Kenyans from the Eastern and northern part of the country queuing up for free food.

Kenyans are an interesting lot rushing to fill their bellies with all that fat. Unaware of the fact that the popular brand has fled the increasingly health-conscious west to pitch camp on the continent that loves everything that is American. I think it is possible to sell human waste very successfully in Kenya as long as you can convince people it is from America.
Interestingly the local press has completely missed the fact that KFC have been here before but packed and left in the early 70s. Now they are back to fatten naïve Kenyans.

Don’t get me wrong. It is not that I am allergic to chicken. It is just that I eat it sparingly and next time I am in Nairobi the first item on my list will NOT be to rush to KFC just so that I may have something to post on my Facebook status.

But friends, I am still very excited about KFC coming to Kenya. And the reason is the inspiring business story behind the world’s largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain.

The founder is one Colonel Sanders, a man who was not even a real colonel.

Born Harland Sanders, his dad died when he was only six years old, and, since his mother worked, he was required to cook for his family and that is how his long career as a cook started. He dropped out of school in seventh grade to help provide for his siblings. But when his mother remarried, he ran away from home because his stepfather beat him. Sanders falsified his date of birth and enlisted in the United States Army at the age of sixteen, completing his entire service commitment in Cuba. In his early years, Sanders held many jobs, including: steamboat pilot, insurance salesman, railroad fireman and farmer amongst many others.

At the age of 40, Sanders cooked chicken dishes and other meals for people who stopped at his service station in Corbin, Kentucky. Since he did not have a restaurant, he served customers in his adjacent living quarters. His local popularity grew, and Sanders moved to a motel and 142 seat restaurant, later Harland Sanders Café and Museum. Over the next nine years he developed his "secret recipe" for frying chicken in a pressure fryer that cooked the chicken much faster than pan frying.

Sanders was given the honorary title "Kentucky Colonel" in 1935 by Governor Ruby Laffoon. He was "re-commissioned" in 1950 by Governor Lawrence Wetherby.

It wasn't until 1950 that Sanders began developing his distinctive appearance, growing his trademark mustache and goatee and donning a white suit and string tie. He never wore anything else in public during the last 20 years of his life, using a heavy wool suit in the winter and a light cotton suit in the summer.

At the age of 65, Sanders' was broke. His small store had failed due to the new Interstate 75 reducing his restaurant's customer traffic. He took $105 from his first Social Security check and began going door to door selling his recipe. It was very hard work for such an old man and rejection was constant so much so that he was forced to live off Social Security. But amazingly he never gave up. He just kept on knocking on doors with his cooker and spices trying to convince restaurants to pay him to use his recipe. Smaller restaurants were willing to pay him a small fee for every chicken sold and, by 1960, Sanders had over 400 "franchises".

Sanders sold the Kentucky Fried Chicken Corporation in 1964 for $2 million to a partnership of Kentucky businessmen headed by John Y. Brown, Jr. The deal did not include the Canadian operations.

There are fewer tales that are more inspirational than the Sander story. Enjoy your fried chicken this weekend but head to the gym immediately after.

Amazing quotes from Colonel Sanders
I made a resolve then that I was going to amount to something if I could. And no hours, nor amount of labor, nor amount of money would deter me from giving the best that there was in me. And I have done that ever since, and I win by it. I know.

There's no reason to be the richest man in the cemetery. You can't do any business from there.

You got to like your work. You have got to like what you are doing, you have got to be doing something worthwhile so you can like it.. because it is worthwhile, that it makes a difference, don't you see?

We have enough chicken houses in nairobi already!

And why chicken? Why not healthy organic food?

Do you know chicken (as of food) has a racist connotation to it? Chicken take-away in the west is considered as a 'black thing' or black culture.

Could it be the reason why KFC as open in Kenya?

Folks, you don't know how this stereotype is so bad in the West. The stereotype goes to say why black people are so fat, unhealthy, and likely to die of certain diseases.

Kenyans, boycott KFC please!

M. Pesa said...

Chris as always thanks for such inspirational stories about business and lifestyle.

I can predict that KFC will be a roaring success here in Kenya (Nairobi?) just like Steers, Pizza Inn, Creamy Inn, etc. They are always packed everyday and queues snake for miles when they have offers like "Terrific Tuesday" where you buy one and get one free.

I thinks there's too much idle cash in the hands of middle class Kenyans. This is very telling whenever there's a decent IPO (remember Kengen and Safcom?) or those text message lottery games.

Billions of shillings change hands within hours. Bank always out do each other when announcing massive profits every year. I'm yet to see a bank not making over 10% profits compared to last year!

I rarely venture any more into those many shopping malls mushrooming all over the capital. The simple reason is that you will never get a parking slot or any empty seat in those restaurants as middle class Kenyans jostle for space. Most of them don't even have a clue who their MP is!

You will never catch them talking "stupid" siasa duni za watu wa Kibera. It's all about shares, assets, plots of land, investment..etc.

That's why we have said the next phase of what happened in 2007/8 will not primitive tribal wars but class wars. Is the middle class listening or just busy belching from their 5 course meals?

I think many middle class Kenyans have travelled widely and sampled world class goods and services. woe unto you if your business is shoddy and not up to these people's taste. It will definitely collapse faster than a pack of cards. I'm sure KFC have done a thorough research into this and given Kenya thumbs up.

Colonel Sanders the founder of KFC reminds me of my late granddad (from my mum's side) who was born and brought up on the slopes of Mt Kenya. The Mzee believed that anyone who failed to get rich didn't deserve to live. He would say there are millions of ways of making lots of cash, even ferrying people on your back across rivers!

He kind of reminds me of Paulie in the movie Goodfellas who "knew how to get things done." He would do things and amaze people. He was one of the first farmers to introduce bee keeping which he learnt from Kambas and fish farming which he learnt from Luos. Back then, most Kikuyus hated eating or rearing fish but today I suspect most of the fish sold in Nairobi comes from Central, places like Sagana where farmers are raking in billions every year.

Sorry I'm getting carried away, but my late granddad also became a big investor in and out of his homeland. Sadly as it's too common (see with Kirima), when he passed on, his "educated" kids with big degrees thought they were very clever in managing his assets and businesses and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to know what eventually happened thanks to these clever graduates.

One of them even opened a very nice and posh bar that targeted reggae music lovers like Mwarang'ethe. He forgot that most of these reggae lovers don't actually consume alcohol and prefer "cool and relaxing" herbs called miraa. So these dreadlocked guys would flock there, listen to cool hits from Bob and Peter Tosh as they chewed the stimulant herb without buying a single bottle of Tusker from the bar. Before long, it was shut by the landlord and the "clever" graduate became broke!

Chris,
You forgot to add Colonel Saunders after he made millions, one day as he was walking down in his hometown of Kentucky he stop by a nearby church, listened to the sermon, got saved and gave sadaka of $1million. Imagine the reaction of the pastor of the church! Colonel Saunders remembered it was God who made him wealthy. He became a millionner at the age of 66! There is still time for YOU!

Next time do an article on Conrad Hilton, the founder of Hilton Hotels worldwide. He started from nothing, but only with faith in God.

Both these 2 men are great inspiration to many people, especially for those who come from under-privilaged backgrounds.

Truly humble men of God

Chris, well written brother. Are you becoming a bit radical or what? eheheh, ahaha

Your observation about KFC in a starving nation can be summarised in 4 words:

BLACK LABOUR, WHITE WEALTH

M.Pesa, very interesting observations.

We add a few comments here and there:

"Billions of shillings change hands within hours. Bank always out do each other when announcing massive profits every year. I'm yet to see a bank not making over 10% profits compared to last year!"

Banks are PARASITES.

As such, as the HOST succumbs, the PARASITE must be doing well. Unfortunately, soon, the HOST will die. When that happens, the PARASITE will also die.

At that time, you shall hear of BAILOUTS and such Babylonian languages from the Treasury and the prostitutes called politicians.

However, when you hear word BAILOUT, just know it means MORE TAX for the SHEEPLE, to save the OLIGARCHY.

xxx

"You will never catch them talking "stupid" siasa duni za watu wa Kibera. It's all about shares, assets, plots of land, investment..etc."

xxxx

The Kenyan so called Middle Class is as mis - educated as the Western so called Middle Class, i.e. DEBT CLASS which keeps things working for the OLIGARCHY.

Analyse their so called talks and it is all about PAPER/FICTITIOUS WEALTH.

Sadly as it's too common (see with Kirima), when he passed on, his "educated" kids with big degrees thought they were very clever in managing his assets and businesses and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to know what eventually happened thanks to these clever graduates.

Where did they go to school? You guessed it right. The IVY LEAGUE of FOOLS which produces FOOLISH and DELUDED African GRADUATES whose greatest skill is ENSLAVING their own.

"One of them even opened a very nice and posh bar that targeted reggae music lovers like Mwarang'ethe. He forgot that most of these reggae lovers don't actually consume alcohol and prefer "cool and relaxing" herbs called miraa."

As Bob would say, ALCOHOL is the DESTRUCTION of the nation.

HERB is the healing of the nation, but, it makes you rebels, AGAINST what?

Fellow Kenyans,
let us put aside the health benefits just for one second.KFC (Kuku Fupi Choma) is a welcome foreign investment business in Kenya which will create much needed jobs for people like you and I and others without which they would have continued to be unemployed statistics.

But why haven't Kenyans embraced and equally supported local food industries such as Kuku Mfalme KenChich, as well as other local food and drink makers and restaurants who would also love to expand to Colonel Saunders home county of America and set up shop there? You can imagine the delight of Kenyans in the diaspora when they will be able to see an "Amaica" or "Kosewe" restaurant with the beautiful local Brazilian girls or whichever other local natives of that indigenous country serving in a Kenyan Food Export

All in all let Kenyans eat carefully at KFC, because we are genetically not the slimmest of people. Alot of "thin" Kenyans are simply poor, when given the chance they would quickly gain potbellies like the one portrayed in the previous post by Chris. Many Kenyans actually sport a beer belly instead

Why would anyone applaud a 'racist' business venture? How ironic the same people who were rambling about racism in UK on the other post are here giving KFC a thump up!

Like I said in my first comment, fried chicken is considered as junk food for black people in the West. You will never find a middle-class white person eating at KFC. EVER.

I have the feeling this is why KFC has decided reopen in Kenya, they know Africans will wipe their plates slate clean with tongues licking their fingers when it comes to chicken.

The ignorance in black community worldwide is staggering! Why do you allow yourself to be stereotyped? I have been to many countries: like Turkey, Israel, Japan and DID NOT see a single KFC! WHY? Because there is no significant black population in those countries.

I wish somebody would open an organic fresh food restuarant in Nairobi in protest of KFC!

Black people never cease to amaze me!

@Luke did you say free lunch?

@Mpesa interesting about the death of the PC. When the two Steves (Wozniak and Jobs) invented the first Apple personal computer from a humble garage at home and started talking about a computer on every desk top it looked like a dream that wud come true in maybe 100 years at the earliest. But it happen way too fast and the coming changes are going to happen equally fast.

Bottom line I agree that the PC is dead but nobody really knows what will take over.

Because certain trait are associated with black people e.g. looting, destruction of properties(which they did not build),stealing, rape, gangasterism, ghettolism, drugs dependant on welfare aka parasites.
From Africa, East or West, to Caribbean, to America, to France, to UK, blacks behave the same way. SAVAGES!

You wonder now how many countries will be willing to allow blacks to migrate into their countries after what happened in UK.

Black people needs divine help! I am just sick and tired of this black victim mentality which has crippled the progress of black race!

@Anon 6:49PM,
Lets look at some of the trait associated with "white" people

1)very discriminatory in any social, economic setting, and are quick to pass judgement based on the colour of one's skin,

2)extremely vainglorious and self-involved,

3)ignorant about people other than themselves,also known as the world begins and ends in the West syndrome

4)self absorbed and unable to understand people who are not white,this despite writing books and making scientific studies for centuries about others

Now that you are wondering how many countries allow blacks to migrate into their countries, i wonder how many African countries allowed whites to colonize and enslave them in the early 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries

@Anon7:22 AM,
I just wonder how Kenyans would react if Somali refugees or any other African refugees come to Kenya, get subsidied housing, free benefits (at the expense of Kenyan taxpayers) on weekly basis, free medical, free education... and then start rioting in the street because one of their Al-shabab gang member is shot by police.

I am sure whole world we will see the TRUE African brotherhood!
The whole Kenya will come out in support of their Somali brothers and sisters.

ehehhhe, ahahahha.

Let us just stick to this line:

"dependant on welfare aka parasites."

Since 2008, the top 10% of the Western society has received in the USA alone, 16 TRILLION DOLLARS.

How much have the Blacks received in the same period, or, in the last 50 years?

Murdoch received 5 bn. dollars from the USA govt in the last few years. Is he not a social welfare dependant?

In other words, if you think the poor get anything in the so called welfare, you are very DELUDED.

Sample this:

1. Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, has recently benefited from more than $1 billion in economic development subsidies.

In other words, the PUBLIC MONEY, i.e. the poor masses money, passes thru the govt. and comes out as PRIVATE PROFIT on the other side.

That's said, what do you think of KFC re-opening in
Nairobi? Should Kenyans boycoytt it or should we just eat despite negative stereotype we black people like junk food/chicken?

You know, it's not only white people who thinks black people have those traits.
Indians hate blacks
Arabs hates blacks
Chinese hates blacks
Jews hates blacks
Until recently Japanese considered blacks as sub-humans.
And if u think blacks are hated by the above group just go to malaysia, there they hold their noses when they meet black people in the streets.

Why do all these group of people hate black people? (obviously not everybody)
SIMPLE. Because of all those traits I listed for you + lack of family values and the fact black men do not take responsiblities of their families. Black men are considered promiscuous who will stop at nothing in pursuit of women and especially the light-skinned ones. They will impreganate women and leave them to look after the children on their own.(good example: Obama's father)
Black women are considered loud, aggressive, masculine, fat and rude.
These are some of the stereotypes on black people that make other races hate them.

Wow! The comments on this story make very interesting reading. Tells you how a certain kind of black person thinks.

Flocking to KFC in Nairobi and believing that your own race is sub human etc etc are pretty much two sides of the same coin!

Why draw racist conclusions when Black people riot. People riot and loot the world over even in Europe, in Vancouver Canada etc. Its not a race thing.

Black people (and other groups too lets not forget) are oppressed worldwide. As Mwarangethe pointed out, its the top 1% in wealth who are the real looters.

Just look at the looting that has taken place in the US.$160 billion to one company AIG just to bail out a few of the 1%. The Fed shovelling money to these looters through the back door.
Don't think Africans won't pay for it.

Better get your jembe and start digging they are going to want our cheap resources.

Ignorance of HISTORY is good sometimes for you can talk of anything that comes to YOUR EMPTY/UJI mind:

Sample this:

1. Not long ago, the Germans were telling us that, the Slavs, or, at least the Poles must be EXTERMINATED for were not capable of rising to the German standards.

2. Not long time ago, the Russians frightened the white world with the cry that, YELLOW RACE was a menace to the Whites.

3. Not long ago, the Russians told us the necessity of exterminating the FINNS. Today, the same Russians are using Finns Nokia phones.

4. Not long ago, the Turks told us that, they must GENOCIDE all Armenians.

A man/woman who is lazy to investigate anything will always be fed with VULGAR PASSIONS. Go ahead and feed you EMPTY/UJI MIND with such passions.

Mwarange'the,
You are the one forgetting the history, actually very recent history.

In 1960s Jews and blacks were allies in US during the civil right movement. Jews took blacks into their wings since both groups were going through the same sh*t of racism. Most black graduates at the time were educated by Jews, they help the blacks get into business especially showbiz (please read NY Jews/black relations in 1960s) Then came the freedom from the white Aryan oppressor, the blacks turned against the Jews and started calling them (Jews) bloodsuckers. Many Black nationalists like Louis Farrakhan rose into prominence. They started bashing Jews. That went like a knife into many Jews' hearts. They were hurt and from then on animosity between the 2 groups began.

Then came LA riots (which blacks were culprits), instead of attacking white businesses, they turned against Korean owned businesses. Prior to the riots Koreans and Blacks were friends/ "brothers". This again went on to hurt the Koreans deeply and from then on Koreans treated blacks with suspicions.

I have brought you this far to show you black race has it's own problem even without touching Africa or Africans' problems. These are Westernized blacks we are talking about.

Well, when it comes to Jews and Africans, it is a long story and we do not wish to say much for now.

When Jews were chased from Jerusalem in A.D. 70, did some of them end up in Western Sudan?

Why did they later leave Western Sudan?

When Africans invaded Spain, Portugal, they came along with the Arabs and Jews.

The Jews were the MONEY MANAGERS of the MOORISH CIVILIZATION in Spain.

These three groups, combined, squeezed Europe from the Mediterranean Sea for over 700 years. Therein, you understand what was the real CAUSE of DARK AGE of the European areas.

With the Fall of Grenada, because of disagreements between Arabs and Africans on some Islamic issues, the Africans, Arabs and the Jews were expelled from Spain.

Hear this now. Having all being expelled from Spain by the Europeans who were on the upsurge, the Africans went back into Africa.

On the other hand, the Arabs turned against Africans and started selling Africans as Slaves both in to the NEW LANDS and Western Asia, i.e. what today is called Middle East.

What about the Jews? They went to Holland and formed the DUTCH WEST INDIES COMPANY to exploit the NEW WORLD.

So, who was to provide the labour for this NEW WORLD?

First, they tried Native Indians. These guys could not cope. Then, they brought WHITE SLAVES. These could not could.

So, what to do to exploit the NEW WORLD? Simple. Bring the AFRICAN LABOR. For this shipping of African slaves, the Jews played a vital role.

Some of the Jews owned ships were:

1. Abigail owned by Aaron Lopez.
2. Crown by Isaac Levy and Nathan Simpson.
3. Caracoa by Moses and Sam Levy.

In other words, when Africans, Arabs and Jews lost Spain in 1492, these two races turned around and started HUNTING the AFRICAN RACE for sale to the European.

So, when you say African Americans have been attacking Jews, you are ignoring, or, very ignorant of the African history since 1492. And, if you are not aware of this crucial history, you have no clue where we are and where we are going.

Anyway, the point is this. The fall of Grenada in 1492, marks the beginning of the AFRICAN HOLOCAUST and Jews played a crucial role which is still marching.

Good for you.

They also, did "a lot of research and discovered" that, Africans had no history because, they were in darkness and darkness has never been a subject of history.

Now, the beneficiaries of the crimes of Columbus, Hawkins since 1492 and such thugs are telling us how African culture is destructive!

For instance, Hegel, a well known European/German philosopher expressed this view after doing "extensive research" as you would expect.

Just as an example, philosophers like Hegel would make Africans believe that, they had no civilizations and history.

However, the truth is that, even Alexander the So Called Great, refused to cross to Ethiopia when he conquered Egypt for he feared to be humiliated by Queen Candace, the Empress of Ethiopia and GENERAL - IN - CHIEF of its armies who was waiting for Alexander at the First Cataract of River Nile at 332 B.C.

Today, they come around and tell us about European feminism when African women have been the leading African armies for thousands of years.

How many European women have ever been Generals?

Off course, you will never hear such things from those who do "extensive research" like Hegel.

Anyway, so much to say. Let us focus on KFC for now please.

Leave Raila alone, Miguna told

A section of ODM MPs on Sunday warned Mr Miguna Miguna, the suspended advisor to Prime Minister Raila Odinga, against using abusive language against the PM.

Migori MP John Pesa, who is also the chairman of the Luo Parliamentary Group, warned that they would not tolerate Mr Miguna’s public tirade against Mr Odinga.

“Mr Miguna was an appointee of the PM and if he was suspended from his duties on allegations pending investigations, the only wise thing he should do is to wait for the verdict instead of rushing to the media,” said Mr Pesa.

He said that Nyanza MPs would meet soon to discuss his conduct.

Gem MP Jakoyo Midiwo and his Gwassi counterpart John Mbadi asked Mr Miguna to follow the due course of law instead of engaging in a public spat with the PM.

The suspended official over the weekend said he had decided to go public on his suspension after the PM failed to apologise for what he termed wrongful interdiction.

“Unfortunately, he has failed or refused to do so after one whole week. This is neither honourable nor humane. A man who cannot apologise and correct his mistakes has no business pretending to be the symbol of positive change for this country,” he said in a statement.

Mr Miguna said he had sacrificed his professional career, life and even family for Mr Odinga and he was shocked by the manner his case was handled.

“For him to throw me under the train in such callous, inhumane and clearly barbaric manner astounds me,” he said.

But the MPs on Sunday said the decision to suspend him by Permanent Secretary in the PM’s office Mohammed Isahakia was procedural.

Long overdue

Mr Mbadi said Mr Miguna’s suspension was long overdue since he had failed to separate his work as a civil servant from unnecessary politics using the PM’s office.

“Mr Miguna has failed to control his freedom of expression by using the PM’s office to indulge in divisive politics that put the PM in bad light,” said Mr Mbadi.

He told Mr Miguna to seek justice in the courts instead of engaging the PM in a public spat.

@Chris,
You are hardly alone in being appalled by the KFC's greedy (calculated) return to Kenya, with its low-grade quality chicken meat full of whatever additives and growth hormones that are now promoted by the poultry industry as the norm.

Do you recall where some of the KFC's - Kula Firigisi Chache - cottages stood? Especially the one that was located in an open space in Westlands, just across the World Vision, Nairobi office?

The vacated red and white striped cottage shamelessly remained in the same location for years after the franchise had left Westlands, as well as ceased to operate in other locations within Nairobi and Mombasa.

Although one of it's former owners (partners) went on to establish a fast food eatery that was exactly like KFC under a different name but with the same old colours, table arrangement, food products and MO.

The eatery was ran by a family of sisters or group of women from Granada and Guyana, who always loved to pass themselves of as natives from the Seychelles, although their accents did them in.

The joint was located three shops next to Ashiana, an Indian restaurant within Wedco building in Westlands, and the other one was based at the Yaya Towers.

And how can Kenyans forget all about Wimpy's of old and its hamburgers laced with tomato source!

Anyway, I have never been fascinated by the fast food chain restaurants, particularly KFC and Wimpy's, because I was a diehard addict (damu) of the half-chicken masala from the two Exotica locations in downtown Nairobi, and the whole chicken from the holy grail of rotisserie chicken that was located near the Jeevanjee Gardens.

"Extensive research and investgations have been carried out to find if Jews were ever in involved in slave trade of Africans and so far there has been no evidence whatsoever they took part.
It's has all along been pure speculation without any conclusive evidence."

Ok, let us see/be educated on that extensive research then.

NB: We still would prefer we focus on the KFC.
