NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 9 – The Nairobi County Government is set to embark on an operation to ensure that three restaurants within Nairobi whose business licenses have been withdrawn are not operational.

This followed reports that despite the action by City Hall, the Kiza restaurant, Space Lounge and B Club were still open and receiving customers within their premises.

Trade and Licensing Director Henry Agwena told Capital FM News that the three which had been closed down due to noise pollution will have to shut down their businesses.

“The restaurants will have to shut down. By the end of the day, that is what is going to happen,” he stated. “They cannot be a nuisance to the public and expect to be left like that.”

He indicated that as long as the public complained about a particular establishment, they will remain closed down until such a time that the County Government renews their liquor licenses.

This is the second time that Space Lounge and Grill on Ngong Road in Nairobi has been ordered to close operations over noise pollution.

The order came after it failed to comply with agreements it signed with area residents and the county.

A letter from the county noted the club’s management has not complied with directives on noise levels.

The club was temporarily closed in August following a successful petition by residents who cited excessive noise pollution.
