Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has made final calls to nightclub owners operating at their properties in the county. In a short statement on his Twitter page on Sunday, November 27, Sakaja said, "Last call. No nightclubs in residential areas."
The statement was accompanied by a series of photos of armed police being instructed during a parade in the Central Business District (CBD). On Friday, Sakaja revoked the licenses of nightclubs, wine and liquor bars operating in residential areas to curb noise pollution.
In his circular, the governor said only entertainment venues in the Central Business District (CBD) can renew their licenses. The statement further added: "All liquor stores in the district must provide customers with adequate parking spaces. Vehicles blocking roads and sidewalks will be confiscated."
This comes two months after he rejected calls by the county government to close at least 43 bars in the city's apartment complex, citing noise pollution. Nairobi's lieutenant governor Njoroge Muchiri said that the district government will not close any bars as long as they follow the law. Speaking with members of the Bar Owners Association and the Residents Association at a stakeholder consultation forum in Nairobi, DG Muchiri said the current leadership will expand the business climate and create more opportunities in the sector. I said I'm focused.
