Kidero closes popular Nairobi bar

14 May 2015, 14:44 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Nairobi County Government has closed the popular Simmers Restaurant over unpaid land rates.

The Simmers Restaurant, famous for its loud live bands, foreign clientele and prostitutes was closed down Wednesday over an alleged KES 12 million land rate debt.

The County Government is seeking to repossess land rates all over the city of as much as KES 66 billion which it is owed.

It will thus either lease out the plot on which Simmers is located or auction the premises to reclaim its money.

The County Government has already placed a notice to land and building owners to pay owed land rates or face the law.

Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has previously stated that the land rates if collected will help push forward various projects to improve the city.

" We cannot complain about poor service delivery in the city when land rates are not being paid. How do we expect the County Government to operate," he said.

Revelers at the famous bar were left shocked by its potential closure.

" I do hope that the owners can be able to settle the debt because this is a long time favourite for many Nairobians, Benson Kimuyu," a frequenter at the bar told News24.
