Epic Lounge shut down for noise pollution in Lilongwe

One of the up-market clubs in the capital city Lilongwe , Epic Lounge has been ordered to close operations over noise pollution.

Lilongwe City Council (LCC) has closed one of the up-market clubs in the city, Epic Lounge.

The Lilongwe City Council (LCC) public relations officer Tamara Chafunya confirmed that the

Area 47 Epic Lounge has been closed following complaints of incessant noise pollution from residents around the place.

She said residents are annoyed and disturbed by the noise emitted from the club.

The  area’s residents are claiming that the noise emanating from Epic lounge  is loud, amounting to the offensive of interference with their comfort, health and safety.

But other sources claim there were also complaints that the lounge was becoming a host to drug abuse and sexual cult.

Epic Lounge chief executive officer Yollam Kawanga confirmed the development saying they are working on having the place up and running soon.

Last Saturday, Epic Lounge hosted South Africa’s Zanda Zakuza who performed alongside DJ Noxx to launch the Shisa Nyama at the club.

I want to commend Lilongwe City Council. I had the same experience in area 49 at Lingadzi bus stage, when my neighbor opened a bar. The noise was unbearable, the bar patrons started using my hedge as urinal, they could block our way to our house. Our cars could not enter the gate. In the morning bottles were all over our yard…sometimes used condoms. The person who bought the plot is a Burundian who does not care about the neighbours. Thanks for the demolition exercise because he invaded City land but now he is rebuilding…Please help us

Please do not open this place again. Its a residential area, and the noise is really much. Its also next to a number of places of worship (churches), and I think that the City Council should revoke their bar license.

retrogressive action. people who are in town need to adapt to town life the same way people around airport adapt to plane noise. azungu odana ndi phokoso amagula malo kutali ndi town, ena amamanga mukhalango mwenimweni or pamwamba pa phiri. closing is not a solution especially during this time where work opportunities are scarce. think of the workers in those clubs, think of their families. if the issue is about drugs and sex traffics. then why do we have police. govt was supposed to send investigative undercover police officers to do their work and arrest those suspected drugs dealers. closing… Read more »

Amwene pena pake mulunama. Noise pollution ku mayiko azungu is a big issue. A neighbour can sue you because of the high-pitched screeching from your cheap radio. On a three-year sojourn in London, I lived in a first floor flat above a pub on a street full of pubs, night clubs, B&Bs (hotels), flats, and some small shops. One could hardly hear any abnormal noise because all the entertainment places were sound proofed. It is a requirement.

Kuganiza kwabwanji uku? Anthu amatsatira airport not the other way round. You can’t build an airport in Mbayani or Mgona, rather people will start building around the airport. Area 47 did not find Epic Club but the other way round. The advice could have been asking the club owners to respect other peoples’ rights too by reducing the sound. Pali ma sound controllers, ask Chimwemwe Club in the city of Blantyre and Club Mastung Salley now closed. You could hardly hear the sound when out of the club

Joints like these are not in residential areas in European countries and if they are they are sound proofed.

In the UK you could be arrested for hooting after midnight.

They take noise pollution seriously and you want people to adapt? What nonsense.
