Nairobi County governor Johnson Sakaja has shown that he is the leader of the city after his latest directive of ensuring that clubs around residential areas are contained from noise pollution at night and other businesses.
The directive of Sakaja has led to the early closure of several bars and clubs in Nairobi County residential areas which has not been embraced by owners of these joints.
The reports claim that the County will also be making major losses from the taxes these joints pay per month. Worst of all is that several employees who depended on this industry will also be affected by lay-offs.
"Each nightclub operates with 3 DJs who entertain patrons with each DJ earning roughly Ksh50,000 per night. Clubs will have to lay off 2 out of the 3 DJs.
About 800 Disc Jockeys (DJs) who heavily rely on the entertainment industry, earning more than Ksh40 million per night, are at risk of losing their livelihoods." the association detailed in a press statement.
