Sakaja revoked the permits for the establishments mentioned above and instructed his agents not to renew them.
Permits already issued are being revoked, but the businesses can carry on as bars and restaurants.
"Effective immediately, nightclub licenses will be issued only to premises in the Central Business District and specified streets in other non-residential areas," Sakaja said.
Nairobi County Governor Johnson Sakaja warned nightclubs near residential areas on social media yesterday.
Sakaja ordered bars in residential areas to reduce noise last week or risk closure.
After some disobeyed, the Nairobi city leader instructed county officials and police to search several nightclubs.
Revellers demanded their rights and refused to leave the entertainment venues.
Many netizens criticized the new municipal manager for his directives, arguing that closing the bars will cost thousands of jobs.
Many have congratulated Sakaja and urged him to take stricter measures to sanitise Nairobi bars.
Sakaja pledged to clean up the city's trash and noise.
