State orders closure of four exclusive strip clubs
Coast regional coordinator Nelson Marwa has ordered for the closure of four exclusive strip clubs in Nyali, Mombasa, on grounds that they are promoting immorality.
Speaking to journalists on Friday, Mr Marwa called on Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho to revoke the licenses of the four clubs.
“If you the county cannot shut those clubs I will do it myself. The county government is the one issuing licenses to this clubs. We are living in a society dominated by Muslims and you wonder why such people are allowed to operate and have women dance nude,” said Mr Marwa.
Mr Marwa linked the clubs to the arrest of a couple and their daughter who were charged with human trafficking.
The couple were charged with trafficking three Indian and seven Nepalese women who were said to be working at the clubs.
The couple and their daughter appeared before Shanzu Law Court and later released on cash bail.
When asked for the names of the said clubs, Mr Marwa said “I cannot provide the names at this stage. Wait for the action”.
Nairobi News has however established that the targeted clubs are owned by influential tycoons in the county.
At the same time, Mr Marwa attacked Kenya Classficiation Board Chief Executive officer Ezekiel Mutua for allowing such clubs to operate and encourage indecency.
“You will not believe what you will see there once you visit those clubs. And I am telling Mr Mutua we should not do be doing PR on Kenyans. We must act on the spot. Those people (club owners) should go and dance to their country and not in Kenya,” said Mr Marwa.
