Liqour Board acted il­le­gally, we com­plied with all re­quire­ments, bar tells court

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Judiciary -

An up­mar­ket bar and restau­rant along Ngong Road yes­ter­day chal­lenged in court a de­ci­sion by the Liquor Li­cens­ing Board that re­voked its busi­ness per­mit. Space Bar Lounge and Grill Lim­ited says the re­vo­ca­tion of its sin­gle busi­ness per­mit, re­jec­tion of al­co­holic drinks li­cense and clo­sure of its busi­ness are un­fair, un­rea­son­able and in bad faith. It wants the court to direct the Board and Nairobi county to re­store its busi­ness per­mit and is­sue it with the al­co­holic drinks li­cense it had ap­plied for. Through lawyer Sa­muel Akolo, bar di­rec­tor John Go­tonga says he was dis­mayed to see on so­cial me­dia a no­tice from the county Liquor Board re­ject­ing his ap­pli­ca­tion for a li­cence and or­der­ing him to cease op­er­a­tion, say­ing his busi­ness had not com­plied with noise level di­rec­tives. He says they car­ried out sound-proof­ing at the premises, which was ap­proved by Nema and its re­port sub­mit­ted to City Hall.
