“I’ve had consecutive issues in terms of sound levels. One thing I’d like to suggest, and as the chairman had said before, when there’s a complaint against a bar owner or a restaurant, over half the people complain. If there are 20 apartments, 15 of them would have to show us their lease, sign and tell us that’s the problem,” he said.
His comment angered social media users, with some condemning his views.
Some also claimed the reporter defended his lover’s establishment after he was listed as one of the noise polluters in Nairobi.
Here are some of the reactions of netizens to his sentiments:
Nelson Havi said:
“Trevor Ombija, if you’re the noise maker, shut the fuck up. You’re not offering to plug our ears. Noise pollution needs to be contained.”

“In 2018 Waititu said the rivers next to his illegal buildings should be relocated to prevent their demolition. In 2022 Trevor Ombija says we should soundproof our homes so his bar can continue to pollute our neighborhoods.”
“Yaani Trevor Ombija stood confidently and said he offered to soundproof a neighbour’s house… let that sink in. Not his nightclub in a residential area that has noise issues, but someone’s house, cute, I’ve never heard anything so absurd.”
