NCBA Auction: The NCBA Group has acquired a car yard for storing and selling cars repossessed from its loan defaulters.

The bank whose majority owners are the Kenyatta and Ndegwa families says that the acquisition of the car yard will help it sell vehicles faster and at a better price. This means that the bank will no longer rely on auctioneers to sell the repossessed cars. It also means that the repossessed vehicles will no longer be taken to auctioneers’ yards for public sale.
