The Nairobi City County Council Alcoholic Drinks Control and Licencing Board has cracked down on 43 clubs in the city for noise pollution.

The Liquor board, in a letter on Monday, October 3, said it had received complaints about excessive noise and vibration on licensed liquor premises from various resident associations and the general public, leading to inspection due to non-compliance.

“The complaints have also been received by the County environment compliance and enforcement officers and despite arrests and arraignment in court, the proprietors have refused to comply and continue to contravene the stipulated licensing conditions,” said County Director of Liquor Licensing Agwena Hesborn.
