UDA-nominated Senator Karen Nyamu continues her relentless fight against Aluta Sunday.

She recently shared a snapshot on her X account captured in a local pub, posing alongside a fan.

The senator asserted that she was on patrol, noting the importance of putting an end to it to prevent the formation of party zealots.

"Niko patrol. Sasa aka na vile ni kadogo ati ni mbogi ya aluta. Aki kanairo mutajua mujui. We will not create party zombies!" she asserted.

Nyamu talks tough on Aluta enthusiasts

This comes hot on the heels of the senator threatening to do away with this overnight trend of youths.

According to Karen Nyamu, the ongoing overnight program that extends from Saturday night into Sunday is reportedly negatively impacting many youths.

"Kuna kitu inaharibu vijana hapa Nairobi inaitwa Aluta. Hio fom mi ndio nitaichoma. Club owners this is your notice," she noted.

In her quest to curb the influence of late-night partying, Nyamu tabled a motion in parliament, urging the prohibition of Aluta in all nightclubs in Nairobi.

Nyamu, who said she was inspired by the tragic death of a friend during their time in college, argued that Kenya should adopt the partying culture of developed countries, where nightclubs typically close by 2:00 a.m.

During her presentation, Nyamu outlined five key issues for the committee to address in their statement.

She requested information on any government plans to tackle the escalation of uncontrolled partying and clubbing beyond recommended hours.

Nyamu also sought comprehensive statistics on licensed bars and pubs, along with a detailed explanation of whether these establishments pose risks to their surrounding areas.

In support of the motion, nominated senator Gloria Orwoba emphasized the importance of regulations while noting that parents play a crucial role in guiding their children away from alcoholism and substance abuse.

"While I support the regulation of nightclubs and the sale of alcohol, I call upon all parents to stop outsourcing 'parenting' and do their job. It all comes down to choices and your children's choices will be influenced by your parenting or lack of the same," Orwoba stated.
