Residents of Kilimani can finally smile after the Environment and Land Court directed the County government of Nairobi to revoke all permits and liquor licenses issued to KIZA, B-Club, Space Lounge and Explorers Tavern clubs in the Kilimani area of the city.

The residents had sued sued the four night clubs for violation of their right to a clean and healthy environment, in their petition the Kilimani Project Foundation claimed that operators of the clubs “play loud music daily and host rowdy drunken revelers thereby depriving them of sleep and security.”

“Some of other negative effects from the said establishments release noise, littering by patrons, obstruction of motor vehicles by patrons, exposure to immoral and indecent behaviour by the patrons inside their vehicles, property prices being driven down as a result of all those activities and loss of income by some residents,” the petition read.

The court in the ruling agreed with the Kilimani petition that should the clubs continue to operate in the residential area would be a  violation of the petitioners’ rights to life and a clean and healthy environment. Further ruling that the permits and licenses issued to the four clubs by the Nairobi County Government to operate were illegal.

“A mandatory injunction is hereby issued against the 8th respondent (Nairobi County) compelling it to revoke all liquor licenses issued to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th respondents,” reads the judgement.
