A Chinese restaurant in Kenya has adopted a policy not to serve African customers after 17:00 in the afternoon.
The Chinese restaurant, located in Kenya's capital Nairobi, will not let in African customers during the afternoons.
According to RT, the staff at the restaurant says that it is about the safety of the other guests.
The staff refers to problematic situations that arose earlier and increased activity and fear of the Islamic terrorist group Al-Shabaab.
According to Esther Zhao, the restaurant's press contact, the restaurant's guests feel safer when African customers are kept away.
"We don’t admit Africans that we don’t know because you never know who is Al-Shabaab and who isn’t,” Esther Zhao, told the Nairobi News.
“It is not like it is written on somebody’s face that they are a thug armed with a gun.”
However, Africans who comes in company with European, Chinese or Indian guests are welcome even after 17:00, says Zhao.
The move has caused an outrage in the media and among local politicians.
“That amounts to racial and ethnic profiling, which is unconstitutional,” said the country’s ombudsman, Otiende Amollo.
