The residents of South C, (Bandari Apartments, Highway estate, Real Estate, KPA Estate, Wambco Apartments, Keliwad, Sulton Park, and its environs) have faulted their local leaders for ignoring their pleas over noise pollution coming from Taah Heights apartments which host a mosque.
According to a resident, the mosque hosted in one of the apartments in Taah Heights has become nothing but a nightmare.
Residents claim that despite a petition demanding action from Governor Johnson Sakaja, area MP Jalang'o, and MCA Abbas Khalif, no action has been taken.
The residents claim they have been suffering from excessive noise caused by the mosque.
The residents complained of loud calls to prayer from 5 am and during the day and night.
“The right to religion has to be respected. However, when one’s rights are violated, then that is wrong. We demand action,” Allan Mwaura, a resident, said.
“Residences and religious centers should be separate areas. This is considered noise pollution,” Anna Mwangi posted.
The residents hope that the Members of the County Assembly will take swift action to address the issue of noise pollution coming from Taah Heights and restore the much-needed peace to the area.
The Constitution protects every person’s right to a clean and healthy environment, including protection from noise pollution.
Article 42 (a) of the Kenyan Constitution says, “Every person has the right to a clean and healthy environment, which includes the right to have the environment protected for the benefit of present and future generations through legislative and other measures.”
Governor Johnson Sakaja has already taken steps to reduce noise pollution from nightclubs, bars, and restaurants in residential areas.
The residents are also urging the city boss to consider taking similar measures.
