Karen residents up in arms against Betty Kyalo



Residents of the upmarket Karen area are up in arms against media personality Betty Kyalo. The Karen residents are lamenting that Ms. Kyalo’s restaurant business has brought noise to a quiet and serene residential area.

These complaints come barely a week after the restaurant was launched. The restaurant dubbed the Summer House was headlined by among others musicians Patoranking and local celebrity figures including President William Ruto’s children.

However, the restaurant began operations about three months ago.

In a letter dated November 25, 2022, from the Karen Lang’ata District Association that was addressed to the Nairobi City County Government, the Karen residents expressed their displeasure with The Summer House.

They claimed that the restaurant has caused unprecedented noise pollution by playing loud music at night, causing inconvenience and discomfort to those who live near it.

“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 is required by the law,” the association said.

In addition to this, the Lang’ata Forest Edge Residents Association (Lafera), which is an affiliate member of the Karen Lang’ata residents’ association, lodged a complaint through Kiarie, Joshua & Co Advocates.

Lafera complained that Ms. Kyalo’s restaurant does not match the aesthetic value ideal for the area as per the zoning policy.

Lafera in October 2022 gave a seven-day notice to the director of Environment at the county government to close the restaurant, failure to which it would move to court.
