[UPDATED]Hewlett Packard Enterprise East Africa Exits Market


Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) East Africa Limited is closing shop.

The development follows a notice circulated in the dailies about the American technology company’s plan to stop operations in this region.

According to the notice, the company held an Extraordinary GM in early September. The announcement to exit the market was made then.

“That the Company be wound up as Members’ Voluntary Winding-Up and that Messrs George Weru and Muniu Thoiti of P.O. Box 43963 – 00100 Nairobi Kenya be and are hereby appointed Joint Liquidators for the purpose of the winding-up,’ reads part of the statement from HP.

Hewlett Packard East Africa has also asked its creditors to send their particulars before October 9, 2020. The particulars should detail claims against the company to be undersigned by the liquidators.

HPE East Africa has been running operations in the region for an extended period. It has been providing computer stationery (laptops, towers, printers, to name a few) to clients from its Nairobi office.

No word has been given about the closure, or what prompted it.

“We wish to clarify that the company in liquidation will not affect the operations of any other entity that was affiliated with HP East Africa Limited,” concludes the notice.
