Tribeka

Popular entertainment joint in Nairobi, Club Tribeka, is down after months of struggle and down with it is a long list of employees who have now joined the bloating number of unemployed Kenyans whose majority is comprised of youths.

Club Tribeka follows in a list of other clubs that have closed in 2019 alone attributing their woes to exploitive taxes on beverages and requirements that seemed determined to run them out.

Club Tribeka closed without notice to its employees hence throwing them off guard as they had months of pending salaries waiting to be settled.

“They closed without giving us notice or any benefits yet they owe us salaries running into months, personally, I have not been paid for the last three months I have worked at Tribeka, I am tired of demanding for my pay,” said one of the employees who worked at the club and sought anonymity.

The employees left jobless after the shutdown of Club Tribeka have sworn to join forces and take the club’s management to the labour court in pursuit for justice.

According to the set labor laws governing Kenya, employees need to be given at least a months’ notice before being relieved off their duties after which they are a certain percentage for each year they worked.

Less than a fortnight ago, the National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) ordered for the immediate closure of Kiza Lounge located in Kilimani, B Club, Space Lounge and Grill and Explorer Tavern following what was been termed as excessive noise.

NEMAResidents of the leafy Kilimani had for some time been in conflict with the clubs, constantly complaining of the noise emitted by the club’s loud music.

Land Court Judge Loice Komingoi, on 28th October 2019, directed that the clubs be closed immediately for contravening the environmental authority’s set laws and regulations.

Clubs in Nairobi seem to be facing serious handles as the government continues to paralyze the industry with exorbitant taxes on alcoholic drinks and beverages not forgetting the expensive requirements for the business premises to run.
