envyIt has been an open secret that Club Envy located along Tom Mboya street is a joint for homosexuals.
This became more clear after the closing of Tacos along Kimathi Street.
Now, according to Ghafla, police raided the club, also popular with straight people, on Saturday and arrested about 60 people.
Gay rights activist Dennis Nzioka puts the number at 65, with most of them ladies who are known to be less discreet than their male counterparts.
Apparently, those arrested were released on a Sh2000 cash bail and were later charged for for drunk and disorderly behavior.
Speaking to Ghafla, gay gospel artist Joji Baro had this to say. “The arrests at Envy had nothing to do with Mututho law but just trying to suppress the visibility of gays and lesbians. So finally someone just realized gays and lesbians have money and they know where to spend it… Just a remainder of the little rights we enjoy -we have a right to spend our money where and whenever we want to.
