It’s all in the numbers…
ne of my favourite lines in ‘The Shadow of the Wind’ by Carlos Ruiz Zafón is the conversation between Don Ricardo Aldaya and Julian Carax.
DRA: And tell me, doesn’t banking tempt you? JC: I don’t know, sir. The truth is that it hadn’t even entered my head. I’ve never seen more than three pesetas together. High finance is a mystery to me. DRA: There’s no mystery, Julian. The trick is not to put pesetas together in three, but in three million. That way there’s no enigma, I can assure you. No Holy Trinity. I couldn’t help but recall this conversation between Aldaya and Carax when interviewing The Village Market’s senior accountant, Daniel Muriiki. Read his interesting story in our Profiler section. Our contributors are also serving up some great reads in this issue. Spend Five Minutes With Isha Saini as she shares her 10 best uses for the kikoy. Kaya Spa’s Amondi Buyu delves into one of those subjects we dare not speak about: Sex and the Spa. Reema Doshi of Kingsway Tyres speaks of one of her many passions, the Women’s Tyre Clinic; and The Village Market’s public relations officer, Damar Padwa, talks to two creative artists in our new Lifestyle column.

Village News New hotel and more shops in KES 5bn expansion A further KES 5 billion expansion project has been announced by The Village Market. The redevelopment of East Africa’s largest shopping mall will include a new 187-room hotel and 75 additional shops. The Village Market has announced a further KES 5 billion investment as part of its multi-stage redevelopment financed by Equity Bank. The significant investment will include 75 additional retail outlets, restaurants, children’s activities and a 187-room hotel with conference facilities for 500 people. Since it opened in April 1995 the Market has continuously expanded its offering to accommodate the needs of its surrounding area in north Nairobi, the city’s growing commercial and residential diplomatic district. Previous expansions included Tribe Hotel, the city’s first luxury boutique hotel, which has earned several accolades including three Hot List mentions by the travel publication Condé Nast Traveler and recognition as one of the World’s Top 100 Hotels by the Robb Report.
Hamed Ehsani. “We are confident in Kenya’s future. We want to be a positive force in its development and emergence as an economic powerhouse in Africa.” And the Market’s director, Sanjay Shah, said: “Kenya is on the verge of an economic renaissance with the discovery of significant resources, the growth of the technology and mobile sectors and the expansion of the country’s industrial base. With this growth, the appetite for consumer goods, luxury products and entertainment options will also increase. Our vision is to grow with Kenya.” Retail outlets in the new development will adopt a modern aesthetic, with double volume spaces in anticipation of the imminent entry of several luxury brands into the market.
“Multinational luxury retailers require more space and specific configurations for interior dimensions,” said Mr Shah. “We have considered these requirements in our designs.” The new facilities have been designed by Symbion, an architectural firm in Nairobi. They will incorporate a 500-person conference facility to support the new 187-room hotel. There will be two basement parking levels. This will boost the centre’s parking capacity by 700 cars – almost double the existing capacity. Mr Ehsani said: “We realise the next evolution in tourism for Kenya will be in Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (MICE). There is massive potential for Kenya to develop this sector and become a regional hub for conferencing. We need to build the infrastructure to support this opportunity.” M/S Seyani Brothers have been awarded the contract for the construction work, due to begin in the first week of May. The redevelopment will be phased. Retail and restaurant outlets will come on line by the end of 2015 while the new hotel and conference facilities are due to enter service in mid 2016.
Most recently, The Village Market completed an aesthetic and structural redesign of its Food Court as well as an expansion of the Nakumatt supermarket. It introduced 150 more parking spaces and over 20 retail outlets as well as modernising the facility with elevators and moving walkways. “The Village Market is committed to innovation and the advancement of the retail and real estate sectors in Kenya,” said managing director

Interiors Expo is welcomed back and The Village Market to confirm their visit, while online advance bookings soared.
After nearly one and a half years of waiting, the Ideal Interiors Expo returned to its original home at The Village Market’s rooftop exhibition pavilion. From 5 to 9 March industry players, trendsetters and solution providers staged an interiors show like no other. Even before the show opened, it was clear that those passionate about interiors were looking forward eagerly to the event. The show’s well coordinated advertising campaign kept potential visitors calling event organisers Ideal Events
Arising from a passion to provide the built environment with exemplary style, the Ideal Interiors Expo offers all kinds of bright ideas in relation to walls, floors and ceilings, colours, furniture, security systems, lighting and much more. The one-on-one business platform brought together interior designers, architects, contractors, home developers, home owners and hoteliers. This is the event for those who love aesthetically pleasing spaces, technologically advanced appliances and innovations that are both creative and sustainable. Officiating at the event’s opening ceremony, Senator Kithure Kindiki said: “I have been impressed by the fact that the interior industry,
though rarely talked about at the national level, is one of the key economic drivers in the country, with a business value worth over KES 200 billion injected into the economy every year. These figures are impressive and should therefore inspire us to seek to grow this platform further.” Humphrey Odhiambo, the event’s founder and director, said that returning to The Village Market – where the exhibition was conceived – marked a turning point for keen buyers and quality-conscious exhibitors in the interiors industry. “The Village Market squarely remains a strategic venue for Ideal Interiors considering its strategic location, guaranteed security and ample parking among many other features.” The Ideal Interiors Expo is ranked highly by professionals in the building industry. Since its inception five years ago, the expo has provided a multi-billion-shilling market opportunity for exhibitors and incremental value for visitors.
New shopping wing offers variety galore After months of construction work, The Village Market’s new shopping wing offers a premium shopping experience with a variety of renowned international brands, services and facilities catering to various shoppers’ tastes.

make use of the beautiful kikoy fabric. Kikoys are made from hand-woven cotton – the finest cotton grown in East Africa. They come in a variety of bold and bright colours and can be used in a traditional way as a wraparound. The kikoy can also be used as a towel, a robe, a cover-up or even a throw on furniture. Today, the kikoy is not only a fashion accessory to be displayed on international catwalks; it can also be put to practical use on a 21st century clothes line. Companies that specialise in the kikoy have developed a range of designs that encompass the origin of the kikoy together with the rationale for clothing today: comfort, style and innovation. Here are a few examples of the kikoy’s versatility:

BOOkwOrM 50 YEARS SINCE INDEPENDENCE Author: Susan Wakhungu-Githuku Price: KES 4,550 Where is Kenya? This book casts a compelling 360-degree lens on the country’s political and socio-economic performance since attaining self-rule in 1963. In a unique collection of insightful essays, 50 known leaders, industry operatives and citizens share candid views. Each account is dramatic and revealing in its conclusions.
ABRAHAM’S PEOPLE (A KENYAN DYNASTY) Author: Author: Jane Clare Barsby Price: KES 5,800 ‘Abraham’s People’ traces the journey of the Lithuanian-Jewish Block family from its time of persecution under the Russian Tsars to its position as the founder of East Africa’s famous hotel chain, Block Hotels. The story begins in Lithuania in 1849 with the birth of Samuel Block and follows his progress through the pogroms of Russia’s ‘Pale of Settlement’, his marriage to Ettel and his eventual flight to South Africa. An iconic figure, Abraham Block was often to be found standing on the steps of his many and varied business concerns with his hands clasped behind his back, observing the world he had helped to mould. A humble man of immense personal stature, ALB, as he was known, stood out even against the vivid eccentricity of colonial Kenya. Surviving two world wars, the Mau Mau insurgency and the establishment of Kenyan independence, he was a founder member of Kenya’s Jewish community and instrumental in creating a refuge for those fleeing the Holocaust. Refugee, factory boy, soldier, farmer, hustler and trader, Abraham Block was best known for his ownership of the Norfolk and Stanley hotels. Transcending the anti-Semitism that had marred his own life, Abraham abhorred all forms of discrimination and treated Europeans, Asians and Africans entirely alike. A contemporary of Denys Finch Hatton, he was a pioneer of Kenya’s safari industry; and he counted Kenya’s most famous colonial figure, Lord Delamere, among his many friends. To the Africans, meanwhile, he was simply known as ‘The Prophet’ in recognition of his seeming ability to predict the future and make it work in his favour. Abraham and Sarah were succeeded by their own people, Rita, Jack, Tubby and Ruth Block, who went on to extend and consolidate the Block empire, stand alongside the famous figure of Kenyan independence and establish a dynasty that now spans the globe.
DUST Author: Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor Price: KES 1,500 In contemporary Nairobi, a young man named Moses Odidi Oganda bleeds to death in the streets, murdered by police. As his lifeblood, full of memories, colours and songs, pours into the dust, the stories that tumble forth reveal the violent upheaval of Kenyan’s own life, from the Mau Mau uprisings of the 1950s to the murky intricacies of modern-day corruption. Odidi’s grief-stricken family journeys home to Wuoth Ogik, their crumbling, coral-coloured house far out in the Kenyan dry lands. Fifty years ago, Wuoth Ogik was built by a British colonial officer whose name they no longer dare speak. The mystery of his disappearance is woven together with the secrets, desires, and shadows in their decaying desert house. In the parched landscape where the Oganda’s live, stories are of paramount importance. This is a story about stories, about how myths come to pass, history is written and war stains us forever with strength, empathy and grace. ‘Dust’ brings together the shards of a family’s and nation’s shared and hidden history, which gradually come clear and are exorcised. Written in prose of arresting power, Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor’s debut novel is a stunning original work of art. Yvonne is winner of the 2003 Caine Prize for African writing.
THE FISHING FLEET (HUSBAND-HUNTING IN THE RAJ) Author: Anne de Courcy Price: KES 1,050 When British rule in India was as its height, the ships arriving in the ports of Madras, Calcutta and Bombay brought with them countless eligible young women. These were the girls of the ‘Fishing Fleet’, who travelled to India in the hope of finding a husband. A glittering round of parties, dances, picnics, tiger shoots and romances followed. But for those who were successful in their quest, life often changed dramatically. Whisked off to a remote outpost, they often found married life a far cry from the social whirl of their first arrival. Anne de Courcy weaves together the extraordinary stories of these intrepid young women in a dazzling picture of a forgotten era.
