Residents of Parklands Estate in Nairobi are up in arms demanding for immediate action to be taken against Odyssy Grill which is notorious for playing loud music.

The irate residents have threatened to demonstrate against Odyssy Grill for operating beyond licensed hours and producing excessively loud noise.

They say that the place is a public nuisance and attempts to plead with the management have fallen on deaf ears with the management said to be rude.

Some of the residents interviewed by Kenya insights expressed shock after learning that the management brags that no action can be taken against them since they have pocketed the authorities.

The residents are now calling upon the police to conduct a similar crackdown like the recent one in Kilimani area in the operation dubbed ‘punguza muziki.’

The operation was meant to curb noise pollution in the city. Parklands residents say Oddyssy she Club which at Kolobot road opposite Stima Plaza has ignored pleas from the neighbors and continues to play loud music. “Weekends are the most chaotic when they host the regular Karaoke night where loud music and shouts from drunk revelers torment us the whole night,” said a dejected neighbour.
