One of Nairobi’s most popular chilling spots “Milan Kenya” began their Sunday morning on the wrong foot after multiple reports of discriminatory practices at the establishment became KOT’s topic of discussion.
For those who haven’t been following, this whole saga can be traced back to about three days ago when popular rugby fanatic Goddy Jatelo made a tweet alleging that he had been denied entry to the bar because he was dressed in shorts.
Under the post were mixed reactions, with Kenyans sharing their different views on the matter.
Some expressed their surprise at the incident since they had previously been allowed into the establishment while in the exact type of clothing as Jatelo, which only made the matter more puzzling.
Others told the guy to simply calm down, reminding him that the bar’s administration has the freedom of choice when it comes to admission.
This morning, however, the conversation became a little bit more heated after another influential Kenyan on the platform furiously expressed his displeasure at the fact that he was compelled to leave his hoodie at the entrance.
The reason given was that this was a precautionary measure against revellers stashing items from the establishment (spoons given as an example) when leaving.
So the explanation I got (for the no hoodie policy) is that someone can carry stuff like spoons in the hoodie when leaving the club. Imagine you've spent your money to come steal a spoon, kijiko kwa club https://t.co/eEM08e1Q8I

Trust me the admin will make a joke out of it ati ulikuja na hoodie sijui inakaaje yet kuna watu wanaingia na hoodies huko. @Milan_KE do better. Next you'll tell men not to wear boxers to your premises. Do better. https://t.co/eO9PtfMThO

Again, some said they had been allowed into the bar while dressed in similar clothing (hoodies this time) which left many wondering whether their strict dress code policy is selectively applied.
Their response, however, gave the story a whole different turn.
Netizens came out to condenm (and make fun of) Milan’s reply to Jatelo. Some experts in the field even offered a few free tips to the management on matters customer service.
This place needs proper management. Looks like it's being run by clowns. https://t.co/Odd75ad6oz
