Nairobi Police Clamp Down On Night Club, Churches

Police in Kenyan capital, Nairobi, have stormed into nightclubs and ordered revelers to leave during a crackdown on premises operating in residential areas.

This followed complaints from residents about noise from bars, restaurants, nightclubs and alcohol-selling premises.

Governor Johnson Sakaja had cancelled the licenses of nightclubs operating within residential areas.

He said they would only be allowed to operate within the city center and on specified streets in non-residential areas.

Many Nairobi residents have been calling for a similar ban on churches in residential areas known for having loud music systems.
