Mp converts house into a club
Residents of a Membley Estate in Kiambu are up in arms after a former MP established a drinking joint in the neighborhood.
Despite numerous calls to the concerned authorities by residents of Membley estate, former Ol Joro orok MP John Murriithi Waiganjo has continued to operate his bar and restaurant against the estate bylaws.
The MP has denied the accusations.
The establishment is in a residential house that has one section converted into a bar and restaurant.
Residents have complained of loud music, strangers thronging the area, and hundreds of vehicles being parked outside.
Muriithi served as MP between 2013 -2017 and is a lawyer by profession.
Residents said with his family of six children and his wife, he occupies the house as well as sells alcohol.
In 2020, residents of Membley Daykio wrote to the Ruiru sub-county administrator, Deputy County Commissioner, Ruiru sub-county, and the Kiambu County CEC for Lands, Housing, and physical planning complaining about the development.
However, last week, Muriithi told off his neighbors after social and mainstream media reported about their concerns.
In a letter he posted on the estate WhatsApp groups, he claims the Kiambu County planning, technical committee held on May 3 with minute number CP IC /078/2021/207 approved the change of user.
