Nominated Senator Karen Nyamu has issued a warning to club owners regarding the operation of the popular reggae Sunday shows, commonly known as 'Aluta,' among the youth.
Karen Nyamu declares war on 'Aluta Sunday' entertainment joints
Nyamu warned club owners saying she was going to stop what she said was destroying the youth
Nyamu, in a social media post, indicated that she had officially notified club owners, expressing concern that the youth were channelling all their funds into clubs instead of more constructive activities.
"There is something ruining the youth here in Nairobi called ALUTA. I am going to tackle that head-on. Club owners, this is your notice," Nyamu stated on her Instagram.
In response to Nyamu's notice, popular reggae DJ Double Trouble, one of the DJs behind the renowned shows, stated that they would not accept Nyamu's stance.
Another fan suggested that Nyamu might be affecting her partner Samidoh's source of income since clubs are where he often performs.
Nyamu's statements sparked mixed reactions among partygoers and businesspeople, with many arguing that she might be jeopardizing a popular and enjoyable tradition.
Media personality Joyce Gituro also joined the conversation, supporting Senator Nyamu's stance.
A few weeks earlier, Gituro went viral while discussing 'Aluta' Sundays with her son Jakes Nyanjom.
Aluta Sundays, a Sunday service that kicks off at 6 am, has become a well-liked gathering for revellers in Nairobi clubs.
The concept initially emerged from club owners along Thika Road before quickly spreading to other clubs in Nairobi.
The program caters to reggae enthusiasts who prefer not to head home on Sunday morning after a lively Saturday night out.
Here are some of the reactions :
