What is the relationship between Nakumatt & Tuskys?

I read that Nakumatt & Tuskys (formerly Tusker Mattresses) are sister companies.

Does anyone have an idea of their exact relationship?

Who are the directors of Tuskys?

Does that make Nakumatt the undisputed leader in Kenya's retail scene?

Hmmm... I tried searching her blog but no luck...

I wonder if Nakumatt has an interest in Tuskys i.e. a shareholding. There is no "monopoly" since the retail sector is dominated by Mom & Pop stores/kiosks.

Of course, at the rate Nakumatt & Tuskys are growing they will dominate the retail scene as long as the management does not screw up...

Tusker Baridi...

How be you?

The info i got from "reliable" sources is they are not sister companies

I haven't read much on Kenyan business lately so i've not heard about Tuskys. However, Tusker Mattresses is owned by my relas.

Remember me jokingly saying "Kikuyu's ...nani kama sisi" and being lashed out like i head Mungik_?

Nway, send me mail at sanebrownlady@yahoo.com and i'll fwd the details of the r/ship between the two companies.

Adios!

The account is "somewhat" similar to what i have been told.

Regarding the refusal to sell "cold tusker"..among other alcoholic & cigarette brands...i am told they simply do so in honor of their dad (founder...who passed away) otherwise it makes for good $$$.
