No choice

Alexander Angus, business development director at the Montgomery Group says: ‘Obviously, this is a huge disappointment, as we were fully intending to run the event, but we are faced with a situation where we have no choice. This situation was not anticipated due to no cases of Coronavirus in Kenya and this is a ban that we couldn’t see coming.
