Due to noise concerns from locals, the Nairobi County Liquor Board has revoked the operating permits for 43 entertainment venues.
Residents and members of the general public have complained about the loudness coming from the mentioned clubs; according to Hesbon M. Angwena; director of liquor licensing.
Mr. Angwena has instructed them to begin the process of canceling, revoking and shutting the affected clubs through a statement that was copied to the whole Nairobi County government.
The County Environment Compliance and Enforcement officials have also been made aware of the complaints but despite being detained and appearing in court, the proprietors have defied the terms of their license; according to a statement released by Mr. Angwena yesterday.
He has requested them to enlist a technical team from County NEMA and urban planning to provide technical help and recommendations.
This occurs a day after Kileleshwa MCA Robert Alai requested the City Hall investigate 15 nightclubs in his ward in response to concerns from the locals.
The Kileleshwa Ward Neighbourhood Association (Kiwana); according to a letter from the MCA claimed that it had attempted to petition Nairobi City County to take action against the loud clubs but had been unsuccessful.
