COTU wants Kambi sacked, threatens August 4 strike

23 July 2014, 15:25 Victor Tinto

Nakuru - The Central Organisation of Trade Unions COTU wants Labour secretary Kazungu Kambi sacked and has threatened an August 4 workers strike to drive their point home.

COTU wants Kambi sacked over several incidences which they say makes him surplus to requirements in his role.

They cite the recent move to retire COTU boss Francis Atwoli from the board of trustees of the National Social Security Fund NSSF as reason enough to have him removed from office.

If that is not done, they say they will call for a nationwide strike on August 4, 2014.

In a press conference Wednesday in Nairobi, they claimed that they had several complaints they say need to be addressed by president Uhuru Kenyatta as regards the labour docket.

" He has mismanaged the labour docket on several occasions and because of that we want him out of office, secretary of the Kenya National Union of Nurses Seth Panyako said.

He added that there were other issues, such as the woes at NSSF and the issue with minimum wage that warrant his removal.

Kambi has been in the news recently for retiring Atwoli and Federation of Kenya Employers boss Jacqueline Mugo from the NSSF board, a move that has been ridiculed by both FKE and COTU.

The directive has since been reversed by a Nairobi court.
