“Ni Waititu amesoma!” – KOT roasts Trevor Ombija over suggestion to soundproof neighbor’s houses

On Wednesday, social media users criticized TV host Trevor Ombija for his comments regarding the closing of loud pubs.

Ombija, who also happens to operate a restaurant in Kileleshwa, shared his thoughts on how to address the closing of loud pubs and restaurants in a video that has now gone viral.

Ombija brought up a situation in which one of the tenants near his restaurant has constantly complained that his entertainment establishment is noisy during the meeting with bar and restaurant owners, locals, and Nairobi County authorities.

He claimed that despite other residents being okay with them living nearby, this was still the case.

According to the Citizen TV news anchor, if the neighbors claimed that his restaurant was still making noise, he even offered to soundproof their homes.

“I have a neighbour who wanted us to shut down because I did not give her a landscaping job,” Ombija said.

“We reduced our volume completely, all other neighbours were okay with our attempts, except her so I offered to go the extra mile of soundproofing as a last resort, but she still refused.”

He added that it should only count when there is a complaint against a bar or restaurant when more than half of the residents in an area raise issues.

Kileleshwa Member of County Assembly Robert Alai shared the video and poked holes in the remarks by the journalist.

“If you want to see the madness in the entertainment industry in this country, see this. The owner of a noisy entertainment joint in Kileleshwa offering to soundproof homes,” Alai tweeted.

Following Alai’s tweet, the news anchor has come under fire as social media users question his point of view.

Other social media users, however, told off Alai, accusing him of fighting other people’s businesses.

Ombija, in a statement, defended himself saying that Alai was not at the meeting and he took his views out of context.

However, his remarks didn’t sit well with Kenyans on Twitter who related him with Waititu’s claims to move Nairobi river instead of demolishing his building.
