Over 40 Clubs in Nairobi face closure for playing loud music

More than 40 clubs in Nairobi face closure over noise pollution. However, the entertainment joints were flagged in the ongoing crackdown targeting bars notorious for playing loud music.

Nonetheless, in a memo addressed to all sub-county administrators, the Nairobi Liquor Licencing Board said the process of revoking and shutting down the clubs is ongoing.

The board however cited that the owners of the affected joints have failed to comply with the set guidelines despite arrests.

“The County Liquor Board has received complaints from various Resident Associations and the General Public on excessive noise and vibration on licensed liquor premises.

“The complaints have also been received by the County Environment Compliance and Enforcement officers and despite arrests and arraignment in court, the proprietors have refused to comply and continues to contravene the stipulated licensing conditions,” Hesbon Angwena, the Director Liquor Licensing, said.

In a letter to the Director, Nairobi Liquor Licensing Department, Alai, a renowned blogger, accused the entertainment spots of disrupting peace and tranquility in the neighbourhood.

“On behalf of the residents of Kileleshwa ward, I wish to plead with your able office to immediately rein in the listed entertainment joints that are not only being a nuisance through noise and air pollution but are also becoming a den of prostitution, drug peddlers and other social delinquents,” Alai wrote.
