Railways to lay off workers

28 November 2012, 16:25

Nairobi - Rift Valley Railways plans to lay off 100 employees from Wednesday, making it the latest firm that has resorted to retrenchment to boost profitability.

According to Daily Nation, the firm - contracted by Kenya and Uganda to run the 1 400 kilometer line between Mombasa and Kampala under a 25-year concession - has already faced strong resistance in Uganda where it is undertaking a similar exercise, targeting 200 employees.

The retrenchment programme says line managers are expected to start handing individual employees the termination letters from Wednesday and will be exiting the firm by end of December.
