“Alchemist this Alchemist that! Y’all big babies see what happens in that place but still go there. You get mistreated and then come crying on socials…” Baba Ramilah reacted on Twitter.
“Kenyans going to alchemist have no difference with a girl going back to her boyfriend even after cheating…” @lastborn_faith also called Fayron an active social media enthusiast commented.
The online Kenya defense unit went ahead to react on twitter of what many termed false mishandlings after the video of the two men went viral.
The Alchemist a popular club and a restaurant in Nairobi is yet again on the limelight after a video surfaced on the internet where Alchemist bouncers are seen to “manhandle “a woman on 26th June Sunday night. The video clip was posted by a social media user that showed the club’s bouncers dragged and manhandle a lady at the club. The popular club located in Westland was recently shut down after consultations with Nairobi County government after allegations of discrimination by the bouncers on grounds of racism. This was done so that investigations could be conducted concerning that given matter for a few days.
Angry Kenyans went to the internet to rebuke what they saw and even developed a hashtag #BoycottAlchemist. The Alchemist later apologized on that incident and claimed that the place is welcome to people of all gender, race and that they do not support racism in any way. Based on the previous video clip where a man in the video is said to be racially discriminated as he tries to enter the club where a voice from the background saying there is a “whites only line and black line.” Alchemist reached out to the man who “confirmed he had no issues; he didn’t even know that camera footage of him had been filmed and released.”
After the air was cleared the club was re-opened back again at the beginning of the month and normal activities resumed. Once again, the popular club is making headlines and Kenyans are not happy after they saw the video clip that has been surfacing online.
The video shows an altercation between the woman and the bouncers as they try to restrain him, attempting to carry her and finally leaving her. The cause of altercation was not clear. The lady who recorded the video clip says that after they noticed her recording, they came up to her and demanded that she deletes the video from her phone.
Was the woman stubborn, was she drunk or were the security team just ruthless?
#ALCHEMIST AT IT AGAIN.
