The club has been in the spotlight for controversy. The most recent incident was in July 2021, when one person lost his life after a shooting incident at one of the club's lounges situated along Thika Road.
In the fatal incident, a police officer was admitted to Nairobi Hospital in critical condition after being shot by his colleague in a confrontation that is said to have involved a woman.
Constable Festus Musyoka Kavuthi, who was a DCI officer attached to Starehe Police Station, was shot in the neck by his friend Lawrence Muturi.
Muturi was a police constable attached to Kasarani Police Station. At the time, the drama began when Muturi came across his Starehe colleague with a woman, leading to the shooting.
Musyoka was the first to shoot his colleague in the hand leaving him with injuries.
In retaliation, Muturi pulled his pistol and shot Musyoka in the neck and accidentally shot the woman identified as Felista Nzisa in the abdomen.
The lady and Musyoka were immediately rushed to Nehema Uhai Hospital for first aid services. Musyoka was later referred to Nairobi Hospital for specialized care.
Muturi, on the other hand, took himself to Radiant Hospital where he was treated and discharged in fair condition.
