According to the Kasarani Police boss Peter Kimani, the raid at club Memphis was not linked to the attack on Sonko’s daughter and the senator.

Mr. Kimani stated that they want ensure that things at the club are done right.

“The officers received a tip-off from members of the public and they acted in time leading to the arrest of the two and confiscation of 28 shisha pots,” Mr Kimani told Nairobi News.

Some of the substances nabbed at the club have been taken to the anti-narcotics department for testing.

Club Memphis which is located at the heart of the United States International University (USIU) is popular among students and the young.

Police argue that the club owner is a Nigerian who was deported from the country early this year.

According to reports by Nairobi News, the Nigerian owner is part of a group that wrote to the Interior Ministry in May accusing it of illegally deporting them.

Part of the letter which this writer read stated that “they were not in any way engaged in illegal activities and that they were students in one of Kenya’s private universities.”

On June 3,  Lamu Senator and Saumu Mbuvi were attacked outside the nightclub by a gang of six who were armed with crude weapons.
