At least seven disc-jockeys have been arrested in Kilimani, Nairobi, on Saturday night in an operation to reduce noise pollution.
The entertainers were arrested from various nightclubs in the Kilimani area as part of the ‘Punguza Muziki’ operation.
The operation was carried out with the primary goal of reducing noise pollution within the residential area.
The incident was confirmed by Kilimani OCPD Andrew Mbogo, who noted that the police had been working closely with the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) in response to concerns from Kilimani locals.
“It is true and the DJs will be arraigned in court early this week, the specific date subject to confirmation,” Mbogo said on a call.
According to reports, residents lodged complaints with the relevant government agencies in November 2021, accusing the clubs of not investing in soundproof materials.
The arrested DJs were Bernard Kipruto from Tamasha restaurant along Argwings Kodhek road, Samuel Chamba from Gemini at Adlife Yaya center, Rich Wambua from Blackies along Argwings Kodhek road, Dan Max from Cavalli along Ngong road, Emmanuel Munezi, from Ashaki along Kindaruma, Felix Odhiambo from Casavera along Ngong road and Marvin Odhiambo form Jiweke Tavern along Karbanet.
The seven Deejays are now behind bars while waiting to be arraigned in court on Monday, April 4, to answer their charges of noise pollution.
Their arrest comes barely a week after other deejays including DJ Fully Focus was arrested in the Kilimani area last weekend for playing loud music.
