Those interested in setting up nightclubs and bars in Westlands can only do so along Chiromo Road, Crossway, Muthithi Road, Mpesi Lane, Mogotio Road, Parklands Road, Ring Road and Ojijo Road.

“These zones and others not listed herein are subject to review or regular basis depending on development trends such as commercial trends and feedback from stakeholder’s engagements,” Mr Analo said
