Davidson Ngibuini alias DNG has offered some solutions to the ongoing row between bar owners and residents of various estates in Nairobi.
The Woodley/Kenyatta Golf Course Ward Member of County Assembly (MCA) has welcomed the move by the county government not to close at least 43 night clubs that had been earmarked for closure over noise pollution.
“I am grateful that the County Leadership has dismissed the matter. I am personally totally against the closure of businesses. As an Activist who championed the ‘Unlock Our County’ movement to get our people back in business and get our workers back to work during the Covid-19 Lockdown, these draconian ideas of business closure are saddening. We cannot rush to close businesses just because we have refused to think through solutions,” DNG said.
He added: “Those pushing for closure of bars need to engage and consult Entertainment & Music Industry Experts such as myself. “
DNG went on to list five solutions that he claims have not been explored.
“There are many solutions that have not been explored:
2. Noise Reduction via cut-offs – Tweaking the music systems to cut off when the music gets too loud.
3. Installing Glass – It reduces the decibels being projected out of the premises.
4. Repositioning Of Speakers.
5. Self-Regulation: The outlet managers, owners & DJs need to be engaged to oversee noise reduction.”
