Clubs and bar workers today held a prayer session following the recent crackdown on clubs and bars by Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja.
The prayer session held in the Nairobi CBD was attended by various clergy men from different denominations.
“For sure noise pollution is affecting many people but on the other hand there are many people who have been employed by these clubs and bars. They are bound to lose their jobs, if this is effected,” said Pastor Kamau of TRC Ministries.
Pastor Kamau prayed that the government looked for an amicable way of solving the noise menace.
“The clubs have employed both the educated and uneducated and it will be unfair to close them down,” he said.
Pastor Kamau has even offered to mediate between the government, the club owners and workers in a bid to find an amicable way of solving the issue.
“I am offering myself to lead a delegation of pastors to President William Ruto to have this matter resolved amicably,” he said.
A number of the clubs and bar workers who attended the prayer session also pleaded with the government to consider them.
