Noise in the name of functions and religion - 39th reminder to NEMA and others concerned....

Do we live in a country which observes laws? NO!!!!!

Do we live in a country which has any respect for human rights? NO!!!!! Again a deafening reply.

Nearly every weekend some GoK official allows loud and noisy functions to be held at the Mombasa Women's Hall which is right next to one hospital and within hearing distance of another and is also in a residential neighbourhood, but none of this makes an iota of difference to the thick headed and selfish merry makers and the equally like minded 'permit givers'.

The cops, when called will do NOTHING to stop the racket, either. They seem to be under the impression that the noise makers are within their rights but, not the ones who have the right to have a restful and undisturbed night and life.

In fact, this country is one noisy place! For wherever one goes, one is inundated by noise whether of the religious variety or otherwise. Regarding the religious variety, officialdom is superstitious in the extreme. They seem to think that they will be damned to all eternity, if they try to stop the religious noise makers, whether they be Christians or Muslims.

Very few have any respect for the law including law-makers and upholders, especially the last. They break the law with total impunity and NEMA which is supposed to be doing something about this particular pollution is completely impervious to complaints by the public. They might talk big, but, they do not walk their talk.

The Kenya Bureau of Standards, a while back talked about this particular issue but, have gone silent, since.

Does NOISE of any kind, not bother anybody? Especially, the ones who are supposed to deal with this very annoying POLLUTION?
