The Owners Of The Lounge
The businessmen who are associated with the Moran Lounge are Francis Ngugi and Robert Kabata who serve as directors. The directors were first brought to the limelight in 2021 after they brought in a Catholic priest to pray for the club and bless it.
Father Martin Ndegwa of St Teresa Equator Parish, Nanyuki, prayed for the facility and went on to state that 20 percent of proceeds from the club has been helping children from Laikipia Rescue and Rehabilitation Center.
“Restaurants and bar services were affected resulting in a smaller number of customers. It is through God’s grace that the entertainment joint survived the turbulent period. Even though we are yet to come out of the woods, we thank God for businesses,” he said.
He also urged the revellers to exercise caution while on the roads and not to drink and drive.
“Partygoers have families. They drive on the same roads as sober people. Consequently, I took it upon myself to urge them to drink responsibly, even as I uttered intercession prayers for them,” Father Ndegwa told the Standard.
Francis Ngugi, the co-director of the club revealed that he sought the spiritual intervention of a priest in order to start anew after the business was affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Bars, just like other legal businesses, shouldn’t be frowned upon; the community that visits bars shouldn’t be prejudiced,” he stated.
