Waiter stirs social media anger with claims of unfair sack at Amaica The Restaurant

Published

on

A man who was waiting tables at Amaica The Restaurant, off Peponi Road, is seeking justice for wrongful dismissal.

Mr Maxwell Mwangi claims he was fired despite being granted permission to attend to his wife Gladys Wanjiru who had a stillbirth after undergoing Cesarean Section.

However, the restaurant in a statement on Thursday exonerated itself from any wrong doing and instead blamed him for absconding duty. The unsigned statement said Mr Mwangi is still their employee.

Mr Mwangi’s predicaments started on May 2, 2019 when his pregnant wife called him to announce she had gone into labour. He quickly sent her money and asked her to get a cab to hospital which she did.

CONDITION WORSENED

His wife’s condition worsened and was transferred to Pumwani Maternity Hospital for an emergency Cesarean Section.

“I took her to the hospital and went back home at 3am because the following morning I was still needed at work,” he says.

While on duty, he received call that his wife had a stillbirth. He claims to have quickly informed his Unit Manager, one Jesse, about his wife’s condition and  asked to be granted permission to leave.

The permission was granted after he formalised the request through a letter.

When he returned to work on Monday, he claims the Chief Executive Pamela Muyeshi demanded to be shown the baby’s original death certificate, burial notification and permit.

In an interview with Sema Kweli Kenya, a digital platform run by civil activist Bonface Mwangi, Maxwell said Pumwani Hospital was the one handling the burial since it was a stillbirth. He requested a day off in order to get the requested documents.

He claims the CEO refused and dismissed him.

‘STILL OUR EMPLOYEE’

But in a statement, Amaico The Restaurant said Maxwell is still their employee and was allowed a three-day compassionate leave from May 03 to May 06.

“We wish to state categorically that as far as we are concerned, Maxwell is still our employee except that he has absconded duty since May 8, 2019.

“We also wish to state that we are aware that Maxwell lost a son and for that unfortunate event, he was allowed compassionate leave from work on May 3, 2019 to May 6, 2019,” reads the restaurant’s statement in part.”

Amaico further stated that it did not understand the “motivation of his false statement”.

Ministers’ Baringo trips elicits discussions on Senator Gideon Moi’s political ambitions

Published

on

It might have largely gone unnoticed but for keen observers, a tour of Baringo County by three Cabinet Secretaries, separately in less than two weeks, could provide a significant bearing on the evolving political landscape.

First to arrive was Agriculture’s Peter Munya and his assistant Linah Jebii Kilimo on June 26 followed by Sicily Kariuki of Water three days later to inspect ongoing works at Chemususu Dam in Eldama Ravine subcounty.

Munya, who was also accompanied by Principal Secretary Harry Kimtai, launched a livestock vaccination exercise in Loruk (Tiaty) and later at Emining in Mogotio sub- county. In both instances, Munya delivered “greetings” from Baringo Senator Gideon Moi.

Significantly, it was also the week that the senator represented President Uhuru Kenyatta during the inauguration of new Malawian President Lazarus Chakwera in Lilongwe.

It is noteworthy that Chakwera’s Malawi Congress Party (MCP) share the same colours with Kanu in red, black and green as we as the cockerel.

“As we celebrate this victory, I wish to express our gratitude to him on behalf of the Moi family for having stood with us when we lost Mzee in early February and having attended the funeral at Kabarak,” Senator said in a message posted on his Facebook page.

“We shall forever remember that very humbling gesture of goodwill at our lowest,” he added.

Fascinating week
Thereafter, Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru capped off a fascinating week when he launched 4G Internet connectivity courtesy of Google Loon and Telkom Kenya at Radat in Mogotio subcounty.

Mucheru excited residents when he linked them with President Kenyatta via video interaction and conversation that lasted for about five minutes. The visit also took him to Eldama Ravine where he had a session at the Rift Valley Innovation Centre (RVIC).

During the call, Uhuru urged residents of Baringo to push the sales of their honey and other products through online platforms describing it as ‘probably the best in the world.”

Kibet Cheruiyot alias Amkich Karanja, a youth who spoke to Uhuru on behalf of the residents assured him that they are going to put the 4G internet into good use. “It is a life opportunity to speak to the President,” he said later on.

Clear of politics

The Loon service will initially cover a region spanning about 50,000 sq kms, including Elgeyo-Marakwet, Uasin Gishu, Nakuru, Kakamega, Kisumu, Kisii, Bomet, Kericho and Narok counties.

“I want to see you making online sales of honey in Baringo. It is probably the best in the world,” the President said.

Although Mucheru steered clear of politics, opting instead to focus on the day’s agenda; the ongoing political realignments in the country and the brutal purge meted out on Deputy President William Ruto’s allies may give a clue.

“Senator Moi who is the chairman of ICT Committee in the Senate has been on my case to make sure that we have the connectivity, so I am very happy that today I can actually report to him that we have full connectivity here in Baringo,” said Mucheru.

“I know wherever he is now he is extremely happy he has seen that actually we have been able to fulfill some of the promises we made; that we actually connect the whole country, 100 per cent with 4G,” he stated.

Gideon is trying to carve out a niche for himself in the vote-rich Rift Valley and at

the national arena where he recently guided Kanu into signing a post-election coalition agreement with Jubilee.

While it was previously thought that Uhuru would hand over the baton to Ruto in 2022, recent political tremors have seen the latter pushed to the periphery and out of succession plans.

According to Kiptum Binott, a political analyst and a former civic leader, Uhuru is sending early signals that Moi is his preferred successor. He said this was the first time residents have witnessed three ministers visit the region within a week.

“As a keen political observer and commentator on socio-economic events in the country, I am seeing Uhuru sending signals that he prefers Senator Moi to take over from him,” he said, adding: “The people of Baringo should be prepared to receive more visitors and goodies ahead of the 2022 presidential election,” he said.

Several employees of the Mediamax Network Limited have been ordered to self-isolate after an employee from the finance department tested positive for Covid-19.

An internal memo sent to the Mediamax employees and seen by Nairobi Newsrevealed that the affected employee had already self-isolated at his home.

“Please be informed that one employee in the Finance Department has tested positive for Covid-19 after exhibiting mild symptoms. The employee has already self-isolated in accordance with home-based care guidelines,” the memo signed by CEO Ken Ngaruiya reads in part.

The company, which owns and runs K24 TV and Milele FM, on Monday locked down its third floor offices until Tuesday and it is expected to be fumigated.

Mr Ngaruiya also said that plans were underway to decongestant the office in a bid to control the spread of the novel disease.

He further indicated that already the company had started to trace people who came into contacts with the said employee.

Last week, the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation also announced that two members of its staff had tested positive for the coronavirus.

On Monday, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe announced that 189 more people had tested positive for Covid-19 with 12 fresh deaths recorded in the last 24 hours.

The infections annonced on Monday raised the total number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in Kenya to 10,294.
