The bar first came to the limelight with the death of AK 47, for it is in the bar’s washrooms that he was found, rushed to hospital and died. A few months after, the Kasanga-based bar seems to have met its own death. On Monday at about 2:00pm, KCCA officials closed Déjà vu bar, restaurant and health club section.
Déjà vu bar is said to be owned by Jeff Kiwa, the manager of Tean No Sleep to which the late AK 47 belonged. The KCCA official closed the place for hygiene and security reasons. “They have not had running water for three months and their toilets are terrible,” said one of the officials while sealing off the premises. “The health club is very unhealthy, and the towels are so dirty,” he added.
The authorities had warned management two months ago. However, their pleas fell on deaf ears, hence the eventual closure. “We also asked them to construct a proper fence, but they have ignored our orders,” said the official.
At the time of closure, there were several people having lunch. “We were having lunch when KCCA guys stormed the place. They asked the waitresses to stop serving us and also asked us to leave the place. They said we were eating from a very dusty place,” said one of the customers.
