Mom­basa Tourism chief, liquor board split over sus­pen­sion of drinks per­mits

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

Mom­basa act­ing Tourism ex­ec­u­tive Lewa Tendai is on the spot over at­tempts to sus­pend liquor li­censes of three clubs.

Sheba Lounge City Mall, The Lounge and Zenix Lounge in Nyali are few me­tres apart. In a let­ter dated Oc­to­ber 25 to the Direc­torate of Liquor Board, Tendai de­manded the li­censes be sus­pended. The let­ter said ‘Ur­gent Com­plaint of Loud Mu­sic and Noise’. It has brought to light in­trigues. Tendai’s direc­tive is yet to be car­ried out; the the three clubs are re­main open.

The Tourism depart­ment and the Liquor Board are said to be sharply di­vided over the sus­pen­sion. The Board feels the com­plaints can­not be sub­stan­ti­ated, but the Tourism docket thinks oth­er­wise.

“This is why the call for sus­pen­sion has been ig­nored,” a source said. He­bert Seifert, who lives 500 me­tres away, is said to be be­hind the com­plaint.
