Nairobi govenor Johnson Arthur Sakaja has come to clear claims of being biased in the fight against noise pollution in the city. A few days after he ordered all clubs situated in residential areas to be shut down,a section of Kenyans went online to question why churches have been let to continue yet they were also contributing to noise pollution.
On Friday morning,Sakaja sent out a message shared through his official twitter handle to clear the claims. He said with the order to shut down clubs,it began with the county telling club owners to comply by operaring in specific hours and doing sound proofing but they ignored.This led them to being shut down.
Sakaja warned that he has asked the churches and mosques to be considerate amd they will havea discussion lest they risk what befall the clubs.He promised that there will be order.
"Even with the night clubs; we didn’t start by shutting them down.We spoke to them over time, they agreed to comply but some ignored.Then we took action.We are asking churches and mosques to be considerate, and we will have a discussion with them.There will be order," the governor responded.
