VIDEO: Drama as Chinese man tries to snatch gun from a Kenyan policeman

Published

on

Chaos ensued on Thursday when Water Resources Management Authority officials accompanied by police officers raided a factory in Ruiru.

The WARMA officials were on a mission to arrest the owner of the company after area residents complained that it was releasing chemicals into the nearby river.

When the Chinese man, who owns the tissue-paper making industry, was handcuffed he went berserk screaming incoherently.

It was at this moment that he tried to grab a gun in what seemed like he was threatening the life of WARMA boss Joe Mutambo, who led the sting operation.

The Chinese man kept pointing at the handcuffs and at some point he is seen taking a photo via his phone.

Kenyans took to social media to criticise what they termed to be discrimination with some claiming that if the incident involved a Kenyan, it would have ended with a fatality

The suspect was also accused of failing to obtain a permit to use the water from the river.

Hana permit ya kutoa maji kwa mto, ana obstruct maji (he has no permit to tap water from the river, he is just obstructing the river),” Mutambo added.

The factory was also said to lack sewerage piping and also lacked any capacity to recycle the used water in order to release clean water into the environment.

In the same breath, the WARMA chair sent out a stern warning to other factories that might have not complied with the authorities regulations that their days were numbered.

Uber plans blacklist of unruly customers to protect drivers

Published

on

Taxi-hailing firm Uber has rolled out a new rider quality system that will see it blacklist Kenyan riders who consistently receive poor evaluation from its drivers.

Uber’s new policy follows a myriad of complaints from drivers over unruly customers who make their job harder to execute.

The firm Monday sent a message to customers notifying them of this latest change while noting that, where an account is marked several times for complaints of ‘unacceptable behaviour’ and failure to adhere to Uber’s community guidelines, a rider will have restricted app access as a result.

The unruly behaviour, according to Uber, can include asking the driver to break the law by, for instance asking him or her to ignore speed limits. It also includes causing damage to the vehicle by for example vomiting due to excessive drinking or spillage of food and drinks in the car.

It also includes the use of inappropriate, abusive and disrespectful language and clashing with a driver due to bad behaviour.

This latest policy, the US-based firm said, will see badly behaved customers receive a warning and be guided on how to improve their rating.

However, if they continue to get bad feedback from drivers after warnings, the next step will be to temporarily suspend the account for one week and if there is still no improvement, face the possibility of full deactivation.

“We have recently updated our community guidelines which extends the same behavioural standards to the riders that we have for drivers and we will be notifying a small number of riders that their behaviour needs to improve or their access to the app could be removed — which is already done with drivers,” said Uber Country Manager Brian Njao.

“Fostering a community of mutual respect matters to us and this change is about shared accountability on our platform and asking everyone using Uber to be respectful of one another,” he said.

Uber, while making the announcement, said that the move was part of the firm’s efforts- geared towards improving transparency, accountability and boosting the safety of its drivers and riders.

Drivers are also rated on a range of factors including the vehicle’s cleanliness, rider experience during the journey and overall mannerism.

Naikuni to pay Sh10m to ex-KQ employee he undressed at public event over Arsenal jersey

Published

on

Former Kenya Airways Chief Executive Officer, Titus Naikuni, has been ordered by a Nairobi court to pay a sum of Sh10 million to an employee he unlawfully sacked.

According to the Employment and Labour Relation Court, the action by Naikuni against former Corporate and Communication Manager Kepha Bosire was unjustifiable.

Bosire was awarded Sh1.8 million being three months’ salary in lieu of notice, twelve months salary compensation, Sh1 million for compensation for undignified treatment of the claimant all  amounting to Sh10 million.

On Thursday during the judgment, Justice Nelson Abuodha said the former CEO was personally liable for the award granted to Bosire.

KQ LOGO

According to Moreno’s Lawyer Steve Mogaka, Naikuni removed Moreno’s t-shirt which he said did have the KQ logo. Bosire wore an Arsenal FC team jersey.

This happened in 2013 during an event that was held at the Lemek Conservancy.

According to the court, Naikuni would have looked for other ways of making Moreno leave the event.

The court also heard that Naikuni directed the Director of Human Resource at the company to fire Moreno which the lawyer argued was unfair as per the requirement of the Employment Act.

“The CEO embarrassed the claimant in front of his colleagues and other guests who were in attendance during event,” the lawyer told the court.
