MP tables petition to sack Labor CS Kambi

25 April 2014, 12:53 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - Bomet Central MP, Ronald Tonui has filed a petition in the national assembly that seeks to remove Labour Cabinet Secretary Kazungu Kambi from office on the grounds of abuse of office.

The petition signed by officials of trade unions affiliated to Central Organizations of Trade Unions (COTU) also questions Kambi’s academic qualifications demanding for his sacking.

Tonui has further accused Kambi of taking sides in the management of the country’s two trade unions, Public Servants Trade Union (PUSETU) and COTU. He also faulted Kambi’s removal of William Langat as registrar of trade unions and replacing him with Esther Gicheha, a former senior lands registration officer.

Tunoi told the House that Langat was transferred to the Ministry of Industrialization in disregard of the Labor Institution’s Act and the constitutional requirements.

He held that Langat should be reinstated to his former position as his name had not been degazetted in accordance with the law.

“The Labor Institution Act requires that the office bearer be gazetted. He was brought in through a gazette notice and should be removed through the same process,” said Tonui.

He claimed Kambi directed the Registrar of Trade Unions to effect changes in due disregard of the law and upon refusal he ensured that he vacated office unlawfully.

“Kambi is playing politics with issues of trade unions. He wanted someone who can register unions and transfer others to PUSETU,” said Tonui.

The Bomet Central legislator said the registrar of trade unions should be an independent person who is not guided by politicians’ interests.

“The office is highly sensitive and I advise the Cabinet Secretary to be non-partisan when discharging his constitutional mandate,” stated Tonui.

He reiterated that the Cabinet Secretary did not bother to seek directions of the Public Service Commission and the National Labor Board on the appointment and removal of the registrar of trade unions.
