Nairobi water company workers strike over board’s decision to fire directors

The Nairobi Water and Sewerage Company workers have gone on strike demanding the renewal of the director’s contract.

The board has failed to renew the contracts of managing director Philip Gichuki and three other directors.

The others are; Johnson Randu (Finance), Stephen Mbugua (Commercial) and Rosemary Kijana (Human Resource).

The workers who are members of the Kenya County Government workers union said they are reading malice on the board’s decision.

They vowed to boycott work until the directors contracts are renewed.

“This same board which was planning to sell this company has now terminated contracts of four performing directors. They (board members) came here under very tight security, went to the board room and announced the decision,” branch Secretary Jebet Matilda said.

“But we are saying we will not work, we will picket until these directors are brought back,” she said.

The workers asked the new county leadership under governor Mike Sonko to intervene.

“We are calling on the new county administration to intervene. We cannot continue this way,” Matilda said on the phone.
