23,000 Nairobi Residents To Lose Their Jobs After Sakaja Did This

According to the Pubs Entertainment and Restaurant Association of Kenya (PERAK), the ban on city nightclubs by Governor Johnson Sakaja will lead to the loss of at least 23,000 permanent and temporary jobs.

The association denounced the county government's action and claimed that 400 to 500 commercial firms in the city would likely be impacted.

According to PERAK, the sector pays more than Ksh880 million in wages each month to workers and employees all throughout the city.

According to PERAK, almost 800 DJs who make more than Ksh40 million each night and are reliant on the entertainment sector may lose their jobs.

"Three DJs are employed by each nightclub to provide entertainment for patrons, and each one makes roughly Ksh50,000 per evening. The clubs will have to fire two of the three DJs "the business outlined in a press release.

The group predicted that nightclubs would have to scale back operations and lay off about 50% of its regular workers and 100% of their temporary employees as a result of the ban on nightclub licenses.

According to PERAK, the prohibition will cost the county Ksh1.6 billion a month in indirect employment income and will probably result in the loss of 73,000 indirect jobs.

The indirect jobs that will be impacted include those in supermarkets, commercial sex workers, and businesses like smokie and Mutura vendors.
