Kenya's rich kids and slay queens arrested in Nairobi's exclusive night club

If you insist on night partying, then you may want to avoid those clubs that were recently shut down by the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA). Several rich and party-loving kids, infamously nicknamed "slay queens and kings", found themselves in trouble with law enforcement officers on the night of Saturday, January 14, when they showed up at a club its license had been revoked by NEMA.

The revelers, however, protested the arrests, arguing they had not been informed about the shutdown and therefore cannot be punished for visiting their favorite club. According to a report published earlier by, NEMA had revoked licenses of several posh clubs in Nairobi following complains from area residents over noise pollution.

These exclusive night clubs are reportedly frequented by the who is who in the society. Some of the prominent names that have popped up include Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho and the sultry TV queen Betty Kyalo. Among the affected party joints, besides B-Club , are Kiza Lounge, also in Kilimani, Space Lounge Bar and Grill, and Jiweke Tavern off Ngong road.
