Fixed on the right hand side of the red-painted wall are two flat 32-inch gaming screens, a wooden-bench slightly slanting to the back cuts across the single room to touch both ends of the wall. Capturing your attention at the entrance is the name ‘High Ground Gaming Café’ written in white against a black background.

Compared to Nairobi city where these are a common feature, gaming cafés are rather a new phenomenon in this agricultural cum industrial town of Nakuru in the expansive Rift Valley province 160 km Northwest of Nairobi, Kenya.  The cafés have however increased from three in 2012 to more than twenty in 2013 in Nakuru.
