Kiza, Space and B-Club are among the nightclubs which are set to be shut down over Noise pollution.
This is after the Environment and Lands Court on Monday (28.10.19) ordered the National Environment Management Authority (Nema).
Justice Loise Komingoi gave the orders after Kilimani area residents filed a complaint with the courts over noise violations by Kiza Lounge, Space Lounge, Explorers Tavern and B-Club.
She said the director of environment at Nairobi county government, Nema, the NCC Alcoholic Drinks and Licensing Board and Nairobi county government have been reluctant to exercise their mandate under the Constitution and Environmental Act (EMCA).
“The clubs were in contravention of the EMCA (Noise and excessive vibration pollution) control regulations 2009,” she said.
Justice Komingoi further ordered the revocation of their liquor licenses by the Nairobi County administration.
Kilimani Project Foundation filed the case in at the court claiming that the noise emanating from the clubs premises is loud, amounting to the offensive of interference with their comfort, health and safety.
In January 2018, Nema closed the three clubs following complaints from area residents through the same petitioner but the clubs continued to operate.
