Party-chasing Kenyans to host 24-hour parties in light of Matiang’i order to close bars for census

It was once said that Kenyans are a peculiar lot. The nation has responded to Matiang’ i order to close bars with an intriguing solution.

According to afew posts on social media, various bars within the capital will host 24-hour parties so as to give Kenyan revelers what they want. The move comes just days after Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’ i ordered that bars remain closed from 5 pm to 6 am for Saturday and Sunday for the sake of the national census. The order rubbed many the wrong way with a few taking to social media to air their frustrations.

As earlier reported by The Sauce, Kenyans on Twitter were quick to react to the order, with some offering hilarious counter-arguments in support of keeping bars open. But it seems that Kenyans have now moved on from complaining to actually taking action, with some innovative solutions to ensure they can still party despite the bar closure order. Prominent clubs such as Blacky’z Lounge at Hurlingham, Whiskey River on Kiambu Road and Jiweke Tavern have published posters for 24-hour parties set to start on Friday (23.08.2019) 5 pm to Saturday (24.08.2019).

The various bars promise party-goes an unforgettable experience entertained by several deejays and fuelled by great alcohol offers. The Moran Lounge and Grill will even host a lively pool tournament for patrons during its 24-hour bash. The club’s social media account reads, “The Pool Tournament is scheduled to start at 10 AM on Saturday 24th. Remember registration is free and winners will walk home with cash prizes. ”

Capital News reported Matiang’ i urged the public to be at their residences so that everything can proceed smoothly. “So please be available in your house on Saturday to ensure you are counted. That is why we will have all the social places, especially bars, closed from 5 pm so that we give everyone an ample time to be home by 6 pm when enumerators will be coming to count you,” said Matiangi on Wednesday(21.08.2019).

He further reiterated that there will be no public holiday on Monday after the exercise. “Do not be the kind of people who look for small opportunities to go and have fun. Why do you need a public holiday, yet we will be counting from Saturday night from 6 o’clock and on Sunday same time? Since independence, we have never had a holiday during the census,” he added.
