MBS suspends Shire Highlands Hotel

Written by 

Malawi Bureau of Standards (MBS) has with immediate effect suspended operations of Shire Highlands Hotel situated in Limbe.


The development comes barely days after MBS also suspended operations of operations of Malawi Sun Hotel and Conference Centre Bakery.

According to a statement released by the Bureau, the hotel has been closed down due to non compliance with hygienic conditions as stipulated in Malawi Standard Number 21: Food And Food Processing Units – Code Of Hygienic Conditions.

“The MBS wishes to advise the general public against patronizing Shire Highlands Hotel situated in Limbe until the hygienic conditions have been improved and the suspension lifted by the MBS,” reads in part the statement.

In January, Blantyre Water Board (BWB) disconnected water supply from the hotel for connecting water illegally.

The once popular hotel has been swimming in financial waters since the demise of its owner Alisa Ashani Makawa who died in October 2015.

Superior Halaal Meats Butchery, Superior Food Market – Catering Services, and Superior Food Market Bakery (Bread and Bans), Situated at the North Gate Arcade along the Masauko Chipembere Highway in Blantyre recently met their fate as they were closed down by MBS for poor compliance of hygienic conditions
