Owner of shut ‘strip club’ speaks out

The owner of Lacasa club in Karatina town that was shut by authorities for allegedly hosting strippers has attributed the move to business rivalry and perception.

Peter Wachira on Tuesday said he believed some competitors in the entertainment industry were behind his woes for fear of competition.

Authorities in Mathira East Sub County ordered the closure of the club in Karatina barely a month after it opened its doors citing promotion of immorality as the reason for closure.

Area Deputy County commissioner Patrick Messo on Monday claimed they had received several complaints from residents who said the activities being conducted there were “unpalatable” an should not be allowed to continue.

But Mr Wachira who confessed that he previously worked for a strip club said his past could have created the perception that he was operating a similar business venture.

“I’m sure my competition are using this perception to spread propaganda. I don’t operate a strip club and that’s the truth” he said.
