BATUK workers suspended without notice

23 May 2016, 19:57 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - More than 100 casual labourers at British Army Training Unit in Kenya (BATUK) in Nanyuki town are up in arms after they were suspended without a notice.

They camped outside the army base following reports that their services were no longer required.

They noted that they were divided into two groups of 50 people each, to work in shifts where a group works for three months and then exchange with the other.

Most of them are drawn from Likii slums, said they have no other working station and terminating their contracts without the proper procedure was wrong.

According to Michael Kahariri,who has worked at the camp for the last ten years a current manager at the camp is alleged to be behind the move so that he can bring in people from other regions.

Kahariri said that this will be a conflict of interest as many youths who have depended on employment from the camp will be left jobless and they will not allow outsiders to work there.

He called on area leaders led by Governor Joshua Irungu to act quickly and solve the situation since they agreed that locals should have the first priority when it comes to casual laborers.

They said that they have been in the fore front in agitating for the renewal of the British Soldiers Training permit in Laikipia and Samburu counties by the National government because of job opportunities.

It was not possible to get any comment from the BATUK leadership as senior officers were said to be busy in the camp.
