Betty Kyallo New Karen Restaurant Faces Closure in Endless Complaints

Former media personality Betty Kyallo is shielding herself twin missiles from residents of Karen over the operations of her new restaurant, The Summer Home.

Karen Lang’ata District Association and Lang’ata Forest Edge Residents Association (Lafera) have demanded the closure of the business for several reasons.

The associations have complained that the posh restaurant was playing loud music in residential areas at night.

Karen Lang’ata District Association Chairman Silalteh Samora wrote to the county government asking it to shut down the establishment.

“We are aggrieved that The Summer House, which opened its doors to the public two months ago did not follow the prerequisite process when seeking to develop the property as required by the law,” he said.

Among the issues aired by the residents is that the owner did not seek the right approvals and public participation was ignored.

Samora added that the building that houses the restaurant is still registered as a residential property and was not authorized for commercial purposes.

“No public announcement in any daily newspaper was made notifying members of the public about The Summer House.”

On top of that, Lafera says The Summer was below the aesthetic value recommended for the area.

Lafera has threatened to sue the county government if it fails to close the business.

If closed, Kyallo could incur huge losses because the restaurant has been in business for only two months.

The business was launched on November 18 and attended by A-List celebrities and politicians including President William Ruto’s daughter Charlene, former Lang’ata MP Nixon Korir, MacDonald Mariga, and Victor Wanyama.

The assault comes at a time when the Nairobi county government has commenced a crackdown on noisy nightclubs around residential places.

Governor Johnson Sakaja has ordered the entertainment joints to stop playing loud music after 10 pm or have their licenses canceled.

Already some clubs, including 1824, Oyster Bay, CK Club, Club 909, and Claret Lounge have been closed for disregarding the Sakaja’s directive.
